I've read they'll have all of ECW Hardcore TV available. I would assume PPVs as well.

It sounds like even though it took damn close to three years to get up and running, that this may be a hell of a deal for $10/month.

Right now, they've got the 3 year old Legends House ready to go. And you have to believe there will be Total Divas reruns. And maybe a round table discussion show starring Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and Zack Ryder on how to be punished and buried for getting over against Vince's wishes.
 
2014-01-09 07:15:03 AM  
I won't be signing up right away, but am interested in doing so.  It sounds almost like a too good to be true type thing.  I'll give it a couple weeks after it launches to see what the reaction is and then make a full decision.
 
2014-01-09 07:17:21 AM  
For the wrestling fan this is the best thing that could ever happen. $60 for 6 months of access for all live PPVs including WrestleMania and every WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV ever held is a steal.

On the plus side, in 10-15 years that same panel can also do a show on concussion awareness where they count to potato.

Same here.  Getting the PPVs for that price makes it seem like it would be worthwhile.  I know that the WWE Network idea has been the butt of many jokes the last few years but this announcement seemed to go over very well. As a fan this made me, dare I say, cautiously optimistic.
 
2014-01-09 07:47:24 AM  
Sweet....i can hear JR announce matches again. But will give it a few weeks to work out the kinks before wrestlemania. I'll be able to see women's matches with Lita and Trish when the WWE cared about the women's division.

Now that is good! :-)

I will be getting it. Been saying that if the PPVs were available as a $10 a month package I'd do it, and here they are offering just that so I guess I have to put my $ where my mouth is.
 
2014-01-09 08:21:07 AM  
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

Man that's mighty tempting. I was a big fan of ECW back when it was on public access tv and blockbuster had some of their videos. Over a decade later and the Sabu vs Terry Funk barbed wire match still makes me cringe when I watch it.

2014-01-09 09:05:44 AM  
Say what you will about the product... this is a much better model for the fans.  Plus it gives the WWE a new way to receive direct income from the consumers.  I heard they made about about 18-20 per PPV, so they will not be making the same kind of cash there, but I think they will make it up in quantity of subscriptions.

"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."

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.

Jim from Saint Paul: I am not telling you to like anything. I just honestly cannot understand why you are even in here.


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.

Not at the rate they're going, they're not. Honestly, one of their top talents, hell, their tip top homegrown talent just told them he'd rather take his chances on the indies.

I've been an off-and-on fan of the wrestling game for 35 years. I've commented in some of the fWc threads and am good for free streaming maybe half of the PPVs each year. And I'm absolutely gonna give Vince McMahon my $10 a month for at least 6 months, but not so much because I'm a fan of wrestling as I am a fan of this concept.

If this works, then maybe we see more robust and inexpensive subscription options become available for other properties, including "legit" sports leagues. MLB.TV is a fine product, but would it be even better if it cost less and had more archival games, programs and specials available on demand across multiple platforms? Hell yeah it would. Or the NFL? Or the NHL?

So take my $60, Vince. Just please take some of that money to make sure these guys are looked after once their days of taking bumps are over.

Ill handle this, because fark you that's why

Doesn't answer the question as to why this violent soap opera isn't on the Entertainment tab.

The threads do get a lot of posts, even though it's scripted homoerotic drama. I guess Drew's worried about rocking the boat.

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.

It's here because Fark puts it here.  Really no other reason.

Plus, sports fans could use having the piss taken out of them every now and then.

Nothing does that better than fake sports and pictures from little girl's TV shows. That'll take the piss right out of them!

/enjoy your stories, fellas, don't forget Days of Our Lives comes on at 12

I never understood why you can't watch archives of NFL games through a subscription service on their website. Or any other sport. Seems like an easy cash grab to me.
 
2014-01-09 10:52:01 PM  
The big question is - will the archive broadcasts be the real-deal originals, or will everything be filtered by WWE's notorious revisionist editing, as their DVDs/old home videos are?

I mean, they changed the damn entrance music on old WCW matches for some wrestlers to be their WWE themes. Will these shows be "as they happened" or "how Vince McMahon wants you to think it happened"?

To be fair, that's usually less of a case of "revisionist history" than "the rights to that song cost too damn much".  They did it with a lot of the matches on the ECW DVDs too, overdubbing the songs with WWE and WCW themes and stock music.  Which ECW used to do on the home video releases, as well.

I have what amounts to negative interest in wrestling (I was a big fan of the Attitude era...I was the right age at the right time I guess), but this is cool on a content provider level. If you price digital content reasonably and make it widely available (especially if you have a massive backlog of great content) it'll sell better than releasing it piecemeal for higher prices. I want things I'm actually interested in to adopt this model.


(I would almost pay for a month and rewatch some of the old classics as a guilty pleasure too)
