Bobby_and_The_Gorilla: "Well look at that Brain, the WWE did something right."

"Yeah Monsoon, it almost makes up for ignoring Zack Ryder, trying to kill Daniel Bryan's heat, burying Dolph Ziggler, making the women's division a joke, shoving Cena down our thoats, putting a Marine Corp washout with a fecal obsession in their top spot, handteen, 3 hour RAWs, having a racist, xenophobic manager and chaining a huge talent to him, ignoring countless wellness violations, shiatty movie after painfully shiatty movie, the XFL, El Matadores, Alberto Del Rio, Sin Cara originale, Big Show in a diaper, the return of the not needed Batista, $60 advertisements for their free TV show..."

"Alright Brain, we get it."

"Ryback injuring everyone he touches, HHH's golden shovel, Vince's JR impression, firing JR in the first place, Rolling the King out there every Monday night, Total Divas, Kane's three foot willy, aaaaaaand I'm pretty sure Vince shot Kennedy as well."

"He did not!"

"Well I KNOW he shot his brother!"


This is gold Jerry, GOLD

Fark You Buddy: But will they show Chris Benoit matches?


Yep, with  a warning of some sort beforehand.
 
2014-01-09 09:21:19 AM

Speaker2Animals: How soon before this s bundled like ESPN and we have to get charged for more sh*t we don't watch.


Seeing as how this isn't a cable channel and is instead a Netflix-style online service, I'd say the 5th of never.

Fark You Buddy: But will they show Chris Benoit matches?


Word is, yes.  But they're going to have some sort of disclaimer beforehand.
 
2014-01-09 09:22:13 AM

natural316: If they keep the archive ppv's in there permanently then it's a huge deal and steal, but I can't see how that won't kill DVD sales


What these DVDs that you speak of? Are they related to those ancient relics called CDs?

Also there will be a TV-MA and TV-14 warning for selected content, its finally back!

I don't think the PPV DVDs sell very well outside of maybe Mania. I think they're pretty much just put out for the completists.

"Word is that Mae Young has passed Brain."

"Yessir Monsoon, she now joins the Macho Man, Andre, Owen Hart, and, well, you, in that big wrestling ring in the sky."

"I noticed you didn't mention Chris Benoit."

"That's because we know better Monsoon."

Korzine: Over a decade later and the Sabu vs Terry Funk barbed wire match still makes me cringe when I watch it.


I was going to post a picture of Sabu's arm from that match, but a GIS is probably NSFW (or lunch), so I'm just gonna give everyone head:

It would be worth it to see (the greatest wrestler ever) Andy Kaufman again .
 
2014-01-09 09:42:01 AM
For $10 a month I could see myself getting this. I used to watch a ton and go to all the live events until all WWE shows went to cable.

$60 covers WM and RR.  That alone is worth the price in my opinion.

Don't try this at home. Also, killing your wife and son is bad. Oh, and don't trust a promoter to have your safety in mind when installing a harness to lower you from the ceiling.

2014-01-09 10:01:39 AM
Yup, worth it for the ppvs. I look forward to watching footage from the Monday night wars.

Talk about a big fu to the cable and satellite providers when it comes to the $60 ppv events.

It's internet, phone app and gaming console streaming, not a channel.

Gunny Highway: $60 covers WM and RR.  That alone is worth the price in my opinion.


Wait, this includes all of the regular PPVs including Wrestlemania?

www.visualphotos.com

Damn, I've never paid for a WWE PPV in my life and only ever watched two of them, but I may have to do this.
 
2014-01-09 10:27:58 AM
The first, and only, legit reason I have found to get one of those streaming boxes/dongles like Roku or Chromecast. It would be worth it to me for the '86-'90 NWA/WCW ppv's in non-shiat quality alone.

Gunny Highway: For those of you who are not going to buy the product.....why?

My concern is that the cable shows will turn into commercials for the network.


TV wrestling has always been basically infomercials for either house shows or PPVs, so its not like it would
be that much of a change.

If there is one thing Vince is good at its getting in early on emerging media trends.

So why post here? WHAT DOES IT MATTER?

I mean, if you told me about your hobbys, I am sure I could find things I didn;t like. Hell, if you name your top 3 TV shows I would probably just call them all FAKE and be right.

So again, why post at all? Because when you do, I promise you that you come off: "I DONT LIKE WHAT YOU LIKE AND I WONT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO IT AT ALL. HOWEVER YOU *MUST* KNOW THAT I DON'T CARE ABOUT IT. THIS IS IMPORTANT!"

I am not telling you to like anything. I just honestly cannot understand why you are even in here.

I watched one episode of Downton Abbey and enjoyed it because there were so many parallels between it and wrestling story telling.

I was drunk.  I prefer wrestling's approach.

Hey now, I hear that show is pretty damn good. Haven't seen it yet, but I shall white knight it all the same.

Jeez! Settle down everybody. I do normally stay away from these threads. The headline use of "network" made it seem like it was going to be a cable channel. I freely admit -- I didn't RTFA.

I bet it is for "THE LULZ."  And he has the balls to look down on people who enjoy wrestling.

If you dont get it, you never will.  I dont like ballet but I can sure as hell appreciate it.  I attribute that to my ability to not be a total douche and being a wrestling fan.

Yawn


Meh.

Just wondering why something that is not a sport should be posted in the sports tab. I mean, I'm quite capable of ignoring those threads, as I do with all the sports I don't like.

But, American pro-wrestling is scripted entertainment. It should be in the entertainment tab.

Pretty brilliant of Vince, and it pains me to say that. Those who are currently using subpar, choppy online streams may not mind putting down $10 a month for higher quality video AND on-demand content. He just might recoup some of that Linda-wants-to-be-a-senator money.

Still not gonna watch though.

Seriously, we just post the "because fark you that's why" because when we tell you folks "because this is where the modmins put us" you STILL keep asking us the same god damn question like we truly have any control over it.

As a more-than-casual wrestling fan, I'll check it out.  To pay $60 for six months isn't a bad of a deal.

Hell, I usually only watch Wrestlemania, which costs almost $60 on its own.
 
2014-01-09 12:17:10 PM
120 bucks for $600 worth of content, yep.
 
2014-01-09 12:23:57 PM
This does sound pretty awesome, but I wonder if you'll also have access to the AWA, World Class, Memphis, UWF, NWA/Mid-Atlantic libraries, etc., as well.  If so, this is the greatest thing that anyone has ever conceived.

I would assume if WWE owns the rights, it should be on there.
