Network Update - 9/1/14

Nitro has now officially been added to the Vault section. All 1995 episodes are available, with the run ending at the very last Nitro of 1996. The '96 episodes have a couple of gaps. For example, there is a gap between Nitro 104 and Nitro 106, but Nitro did not air for one week so nothing is missed there. The same is true for the gap between Nitro 109 and Nitro 111. Nitro 122 is the first episode that appears to be legitimately missing, the date 7/1/96.

That should keep us all a little quiet for now, AMIRITE?

    Like 2-3 days, MAYBE. Then we'll be back to screaming about needing more content on this shit service.

  2. Goddam my obsessively trying to watch everything chronologically. I start watching all the PPVs in order, then Clash of the Champions is added and I have to backtrack a couple years, then SNME is added and I have to backtrack a few more years, now I have to wait even longer to get to 1995.

    That's like me. I'm only getting into 1986 with SNME and a some Old School's. I haven't even started watching RAW/Nitro and don't expect to for some time.


    I am a prisoner of my own OCD.

    Sweet, I've been spammed!


    < -7,500 doesn't sound like a good deal though.

  8. TJ: Safe to saw TCW is dead? No new episodes at all this year...

  9. Mister_E_BarrettsLastPrivateerSeptember 1, 2014 at 11:00 AM

    I've not seen anyone on here say that they got it.


    Rogers is is rolling out a new Hulu sort of service in Nov so I wonder if an expanded WWE Network will eventually be a part of that?


    I won't get it. But some people might.

    Only the 5 second rating screen lays for me on Chrome? With every video. Stream won't load. Anyone help? I cleared cookies and history. YouTube plays fine.

  11. Looking up the 7/1/96 Nitro...you have Steiners/Harlem Heat, Savage/Greg Valentine, The Giant/John Tenta and an 8-man tag of The Horsemen against Joe Gomez, Renegade and The Rock&Roll Express. More interesting though is a dark match of Savage/Flair with Bruno Sammartino as the special guest ref. Never heard of that match before.

  12. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 1, 2014 at 11:06 AM

    All indications are that, yes, they are dead. Their Youtube channel has only been posting "classic" episodes, ie. episodes from last year.

  13. CruelConnectionNumber2September 1, 2014 at 11:06 AM

    That's how WCW numbered the episodes.

  14. Same. I'm just finishing up 1986, as painful as it is to watch back-to-back 2+ hour house shows with tag team battle royal main events. And I watched the first few months of RAW when it was added, but I'll be watching them again when I get to '93. It's fun not running out of content, but it'd be nice to just flip on a Nitro right now.

  15. We will never be happy until everything is up! EVERYTHING!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've held back on the ppvs because the shows that build to them aren't up yet. With Nitro coming it's only a matter of time before we get Prime Time and *drool* Saturday Night.

    ReplyDelete
  17. wasn't Prime Time the show that covered ALL of the angles instead of SNME?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 1, 2014 at 11:10 AM

    Pretty sure that Primetime gave us the major angle highlights from Superstars/Wrestling Challenge/SNME, and then would have exclusive matches taped from televised house shows.

  19. It's me, your friend Alex Wright. I give you permission to turn on a random Nitro. Go ahead, just do it. We won't hurt you.

  20. Yeah I can't wait for All Star Wrestling either.

  22. I don't think I could watch like that. It is fun to watch all of the raws leading up to a ppv and all, but with the small amount of network watching time I get each week, it would take me years to get to an era I actually liked if I watched everything chronologically. I find myself jumping all over the place when I watch. Just the other day I watched parts of Starrcade 86, Halloween Havoc 98 and Summerslam 09 all in one sitting.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is truly the greatest day in the history of our sport.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Watching Nitro #126 and the had the six-man between Benoit/Flair/Mongo vs. Sting/Luger/Savage going at an awesome rate (Mongo's involved was VERY limited) and then Jimmy Hart interrupts the match because the Outsides attacked wrestlers in the back.


    And that night I was not turning away from Nitro. Didn't matter that they barely had another match, it was some compelling television.

    ReplyDelete
  25. They have finally arrived, but now I wish they would have started with the old Saturday Night shows. Am I an ass for thinking this?

    ReplyDelete
  26. It's the weirdest marketing gimmick ever when you actually reason it out.


    Hey, remember how you always chose us over the other guy because we were better? Hence us still being here and the other guy being a memory? Well...what if we told you that you could watch all those shows that you missed because you were busy watching our better product? Only $9.99 for stuff you didn't want to watch the first time around!


    I get where they're going it just seems funny is all, the big pull of the Network so far has mostly been "check out the subpar shit!"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Same here! I'm trying a chronological watch of both WWF and WCW, which is a Herculean task, especially since I'm including the house shows in the Vault section. I'm up to the end of 1985 for WWF and Starrcade 85 for WCW.

  28. IWC: "WCW was/is teh sux0r"


    :: Nitro added to the network ::


    :: IWC spends all day watching Nitro ::

  29. I wouldn't say you are an ass... but it does seem like a lot of people are determined not to be satisfied with the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  30. My guess... people will STILL not be happy

  31. PASTAMANIA, BROTHER!

  33. I thought about doing that... then I watched an old MSG show... I quickly gave up on the idea

    ReplyDelete
  34. Watching it live, when Kevin Nash tossed Rey Mysterio into the side of the trailer like a lawn dart...I was speechless.


    That totally had to suck for the live crowd, though...I remember all the "BORING" chants when the ring was basically cleared for 20+ minutes. This was in the days before Jumbotrons were a common thing. I'm guessing the venue didn't have one?

    ReplyDelete
  35. They balled out on the debut of Nitro... every segment is packed and lots of surprises... even VK Walstreet returning and cutting vignette promo crapping on The New Generation!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I also love Savage saying he wondered when Scott Norton would arrive in WCW during their confrontation. I just picture him intently showing up every event and asking around if Norton had showed up.

    ReplyDelete
  37. And yet this blog still doesn't have any new Southern States Wrestling reviews, go figure.


    What's with the lack of SSW updates Zanatude? It's been over a month now.

  38. He's having a silent meltdown.

  39. Watching episode #47 right now.


    Love Hogan namedropping the head of Warner Bros. International (?) and getting no reaction for it, only WCW would think people would give two shits about the head of Warner Bros. International, that would be like having Triple H cut a promo on the head of WWE Canada on RAW today.

  40. Man, Simpsons marathon, Nitro... and now I find out TV Guide network is running a 90210 marathon all day!
