The App Is Installed!

Switched to my US account tonight on the PS3 and installed the WWE Network.  T-Minus 36 hours until my wife and child never see me again!  Unfortunately it doesn't appear that I can trick my Roku box yet, but as long as I've got one connection to the big TV, that's all I need.  

Cross your fingers for Monday morning that Unblock-US will support this.

Comments

  1. I am fucking pumped. I hope this takes off and goes so well that there's no limit to the shit WWE puts up.


    So much shit you can basically relive any era you want seamlessly.

    What are you gonna watch first, Armageddon 2003?

    ReplyDelete
  3. T-Minus 42 hours until you realise what a big fucking ripoff this is.

    Enjoy financing the new McMahon superyacht!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Random-ish question about the network: What are they going to do about the WCW shows where Rey Mysterio appears unmasked?

    ReplyDelete
  5. You know what I just realized would be a pretty cool feature to have with this? The ability to create and share playlists.


    Would be fucking crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hi Scott, any chance you could post an install guide for the app?

    ReplyDelete
  7. That's a great point. They always made a big hooplah about his mask when he in fact we wrestled without it for TWO YEARS in WCW

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'm getting worried I won't be able to get this for my IPad and ill be sol

    ReplyDelete
  9. Well. Fuck you too, Buzz Killington.

    ReplyDelete
  10. :Starts to laugh realizing that WWE probably hasn't thought of that:

    ReplyDelete
  11. I imagine he's got a yearning to watch Halloween Havoc 2000

    ReplyDelete
  12. You will. You just need Cole to help out.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Zeb isn't going to like Scott sneaking across the border.

    ReplyDelete
  14. They'll show them, I would think. Classics On Demand aired Starrcade 2000 and Sin 2001, and Rey was unmasked on those.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hellllllllll no.

    I'm probably just being a worry wart about it. It seems like its going to basically be Netflix

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm not sure, but I don't think they have any of his unmasked matches on his DVD releases...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah, these idiots who would probably have bought WrestleMania for $60 are instead getting WrestleMania + access to every ppv ever + access to the NXT special and other speical events + replays of Raw and Smackdown. What maroons.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That should be a question of the day: What are you going to watch on the network first?


    I'm thinking Halloween Havoc 1990, because I want to see what that Lex Luger v. Stan Hansen match is like.

    ReplyDelete
  19. If possible, I'd like to watch all the WWF ppvs and PT Wrestling / Raws in order.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I *REALLY* hope they are going to fill some of the 24/7 part of the channel with classic wrestling shows like WCW Saturday Night, Saturday Night's Main Event, Wrestling Challenge or Superstars, the ECW TV show, etc. If they program parts of that portion for the wrestling geeks, it'll be awesome. But I'm afraid it's going to be reruns of the "original programming" their creating over and over again. If it's that... I'll probably be disappointed.


    But I'm buying WrestleMania anyway, so there's no risk for me. And I'm sure the 30 or so PPVs I've never seen before will make it worthwhile.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I know. We should be like Zanadude who just streams his shit.

    Where is that guy anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  22. And I'm going to be very disappointed if there's no WWE Channel on my Apple TV come Monday morning....

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cole giving tutorials on Raw is going to be brutal/hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  24. He is recovering from a horrific smelting incident.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Still waiting for the 360 to have something.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have it installed on my Roku but I'm in the US

    ReplyDelete
  27. It'll probably be an hour and a half of the three hour Raw.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm pumped about getting the entire HOF ceremony. Those are usually eviscerated for broadcast. There are a couple WM Blu-rays I bought just for the HOF.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh fuck yeah. Putting it on the Sony right now.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just turn on Raw, Michael Cole will walk you through it every hour on the hour for the next year and a half.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Me too, I put it on today. Unfortunately I have to work Monday, although I don't have to go in until 10, so I'll probably get all set up before leaving and that way, when I get home, I don't have to waste time "installing things" and "signing up for networks" and all that crap.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It would be a neat feature if they did mini-docs around major wrestlers or angles and did playlists similar to what Bobby mentioned but all related to the angle. Imagine a one-stop shop for the Hogan-Andre feud with matches or Nick Bockwinkel doing a quick five minutes on Verne before a playlist of their matches. It'd be way too much to expect from the Network, but would be cool.

    TJ: my aunt recently committed suicide. I barely knew her, last time I saw her was about around the time Ric Flair showed up on WWE TV with the NWA title, but my mom is a complete wreck, understandably.


    On a much lighter note, would anyone be interested in a Deadspin-style "Why Your Promotion Sucks" series? I've thought about doing it for WM week.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sorry about your aunt.


    Interested in what way? Taking part, or reading/viewing it? I'm unsure of what exactly you mean.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Um, is it because facial hair and an adam's apple are missing?

    ReplyDelete
  36. maybe I am wrongfully giving most people the benefit of doubt here. but afaik there are hardly any "marks" (in the traditional sense) present at the ROH shows. so almost everyone knows that Danger was not really knocked out.... and that obviously she would not really get raped in the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  37. who here likes a good story about a bridge?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Let's be honest, though. While their target veers toward a younger, tech-savvy audience these days, they still retain a large number of older folk who wouldn't know the difference between a cell phone and a phone booth. That's the audience these tutorials are intended for.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Young got zero backlash because 80% of the audience he had any idea he's gay.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I imagine at this point, they barely care about Rey.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The problem with Macklemore is that he's a pandering discolored who will jump on any cause to get some attention.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like my men beardless.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd say the being bad at your job part of him is more offensive.

    ReplyDelete
  44. No backlash from the wrestlers of management, which is more important, IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That's the worst segue to another topic that I've ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sounds like you need a good laugh.

  47. You don't have a TV, you think Maria Kanellis is ugly, WHAT ELSE IS WRONG WITH YOU!?

    ReplyDelete
  48. 12. Will encores of Raw, SmackDown and Main Event be on WWE Network?
    The Best of Raw and SmackDown from 2012 and 2013 will be available on WWE Network.

    So no actual full episodes of Raw or Smackdown will air,at least at first. Is this an issue with their tv contract that forbids it or are they just slowly rolling out content?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm exactly the same, im hoping for a freak snowstorm so i can stay home monday. Maybe i should throw a sickie?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yep, Capital Combat is first on my list. One of the few shows from that era that I've never seen.

    ReplyDelete
  51. The Flair promo with the ponytail is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  52. You can't do that already with YouTube/DailyMotion?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm hoping appear at some point, I would lime to watch the builds before each ppv etc.

    ReplyDelete
  54. That's how I feel. The build is a lot of the fun.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Random old Raws and SDs will be, but not full seasons.

    They have to save something to roll out later.

    ReplyDelete
  56. HowmuchdoesthisguyweighFebruary 23, 2014 at 7:26 AM

    Canadian Stampede is on my list followed by some mid 90's WCW, and some 2009 Jericho and Michaels awesomeness.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'll say here the same thing I said when I saw the commercial for it last night:


    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Why, God, why?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love watching old PPVs while doing chores around the house. The Network is totally worth the $10 for the background noise alone.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi Kyle, any chance you could post a guide to watching Raw? not sure how to do it

    ReplyDelete
  60. So it seems like they basically gave Kring what he wanted in the second season. An entirely new cast of heroes and abilities.. I'll probably watch it, but I doubt anything will be as good as those first few episodes of the show.

    ReplyDelete
  61. So, I have the Network installed on PS3,and I assume the Network will be available on my iPad tomorrow morning. But what about on my laptop? Will it just be through the website, or will there be a Netflix-like app on my Windows 8 system I can download? Have they announced that yet?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Nothing wrong with watching a little RVD head bumping off the RKO, or Michaels getting ***1/2 with a broomstick

    ReplyDelete
  63. I really wish ROH would get their "PPV" game in order. I was excited about the 12th Anniversary show and would have ordered it yesterday had it been available. Unfortunately it still isn't up and I'm headed into a busy week when I won't have 3 hours to set aside for a PPV. By next weekend it's going to feel too late to pay $15 for a week old show for which I'll probably have given in and read the spoilers. If they lose my buy this way, I can't imagine it's the only one.
    If they can't handle the iPPV thing, then they should be making it a priority to get their major shows on the air as quickly as humanly possible. I don't understand why they can't edit live, as you would for a PPV, and then rush the show to the website as soon as it's off the air. At the very least it should be up by noon the next day. It's great they have a product that I'm actually anticipating watching, but now they need to make that product as accessible as possible so they can make the money they deserve and grow as a company.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I agree with them being THE best promotion for a stretch of years. I still stand by my thought that 05-07 is comparable with late 80's NWA and late 90's-early 2000's WWE as the best it gets

    Its a shame how they are such a shell of their former self these days, but the writing was on the wall for years with all of the top talent going to WWE or TNA, Gabe leaving and starting a new promotion, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  65. You are correct. To this day the full details have not really been publicly discussed I believe, but yer spot on

    I sent Scott and email a year or so back trying to get more info on it, or to at least get some blog discussion going, but like everything else iv sent him it got pushed aside for stupid ass emails

    ReplyDelete
  66. The 90 minute hulu versions of raw are far superior to the 3 hour show. Less filler, you only get the important stuff. A lot easier to watch IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I agree. I can't wait for the warrior's live hall of fame speech!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Are you and BigNasty teaming up to take on everyone who is looking forward to the Network?

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think this is very good. As a kid, I was enamored with UW, so this seems like a worthy purchase for nostalgic purposes...

    ReplyDelete
  70. Still no Savage/Warrior from SummerSlam 92 huh

    ReplyDelete
  71. Only 2 WCW matches he had I believe, not counting Wargames

    ReplyDelete
  72. Nothing about Wrath screams headline, ppv, draw or money

    ReplyDelete
  73. Only thing that worked against him was his promo skills and the fact he sounded like a girl, but the dude had a good marketable look and was a good big guy worker and was fairly charismatic inside the ring and I feel both WWF and WCW left a lot of money on the table by not giving him a serious main event push.

    ReplyDelete
  74. What was the story behind Goldust / Warrior anyway? What on earth were they thinking?

    ReplyDelete
  75. LOL I'll pretend they're coming out with a second Savage set that will have this...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Dust was injured, no?
