Oh.

My.

Fucking.

God.

I had great expectations for this service --- and this completely blows them away. I was expecting a slate of random matches, not the incredible series of programs we're going to be getting.

Check out the show descriptions:

  • WWE Hall of Fame
    An original monthly series hosted by Gene Okerlund celebrating the remarkable career of a featured Hall of Fame inductee. The comprehensive journey highlights the classic shows, matches, and moments that made a legend of that month's Hall of Famer.

  • Monday Night War
    WWE 24/7 relives the week-by-week WAR waged between Turner and WWE, with exclusive retrospective commentary and insight interspersed among Raw and Nitro's best battles a back-story to wrestling's backbone. Each episode presents Monday Night Raw and Monday Nitro in their entirety, with compelling insight by host Michael Cole.

  • Extreme Championship Wrestling
    WWE Superstar and insider Tazz hosts a new documentary-style history of ECW, tracking the exciting evolution of ECW's mission to bring "Hardcore" back to the ring.

  • Prime Time
    Every fan's dream-come-true, classic WWE shows originally airing during primetime hours are presented in their entirety. Requested through WWE fan mail and email, the series begins with the origin of Tuesday Night Titans, hosted by Vince McMahon, along with Primetime Wrestling, hosted by the legendary Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan.

  • Old School
    Old School steps back into yesteryear with a nostalgic look at huge classic wrestling events from historic venues, including Boston Garden and Madison Square Garden.

  • Buried Treasures
    Fans will feel like they've found a gold mine with special, rarely-seen programming from the depths of WWE's collection. Word-of-mouth is high on these weekly gems.

  • The Big Ones
    Classic Pay-Per-View events from WWE, NWA, WCW, ECW and AWA are shown in their first major encore airing. These events highlight our biggest stars, bar none.

  • Specials
    WWE 24/7 spotlights the very best of the WWE's narrative, retrospective and thematic programming originally and exclusively created for network or video release. The action starts with shows including Undertaker: He Buries Them Alive and WrestleMania's Greatest Matches.


Each month will also feature an overall theme - next month, upon it's launch, will be Halloween - including classic Halloween themed episodes of Prime Time Wrestling and Saturday Night's Main Event in their entirety. Some months will feature looks at specific PPVS - Wrestlemania, Summerslam, Survivor Series, etc. - and some will theme the programming around a holiday - Christmas specials, Black History Month, Independence Day, Father's Day.

Here is the first month's programming, complete with MSG house shows from the 1970s and 1980s, the first In Your House and Halloween Havoc PPVs, old episodes of TNT and Wrestling Challenge, Andre the Giant and Undertaker biopics, positively ancient AWA matches and so much more.

Please, please, please make this available in Pittsburgh. I'd pay any extra price for it.

LIES! ALL LIES!

Oh boy.

I'm not surprised things are airing in their entirity, since video editors cost money and they tend to only want to use them to protect themselves (copyright reasons.) It's cheapest just to stick an old tape in, and since that's what people want to see, it works out nice.

Wish they were airing more than 2 weeks of RAW/Nitro a month. The first Nitro was unopposed due to US Open stuff, right? I figure that's why they're doing starting with the next week.

Lot more new programming per month than I was really expecting.

I am tingling at my work desk. If this isn't available in Chicago, fuck it, I'm moving. Especially if this means we'll finally get a chance to again see the classic Mr. Fuji and Don Muraco skits...Bring on FUJI VICE!

This is the greatest thing I've ever seen. Over the next week I will be bombarding my local cable company with phone calls and e-mails requesting this.

I haven't been able to think straight at work today since I read that ... I immediately called Comcast to request it, but the rep said "All of WWE's programming is PPV" ... I said, "but it's new service." The rep had no clue, but told me that she would "forward the request to the marketing department" ... yeah, riiiiight ...

I will not stop until I have this ... If I have to speak to Mr. Comcast myself, I will not rest ...

Damn, my hearts beating really fast now ...

Does anybody have ANY clue which cable companies are picking this up. I have Time Warner digital cable, which has several different 'on demand' services like this, so I hope it is one of the companies to pick this thing up.

Sounds HELLA' cool!

I am SO with you. We have the Comcast digital cable and I will do anything and pay any price for this service. So remember Comcast, Philly is the sixth largest market in the US. Don't leave us hanging.

We'll see if Charter has any intentions of jumping on board ... They bailed on NBATV, so I'm expecting to be disappointed in this regard as well

Im confused, is this going to be a subscription cable channel like HBO, or do you have to pay for each special you want to watch seperately?

I believe it is on-demand, which means you select whichever show you want to watch.

Also, the site has put back up the AWESOME trailer that they had up a few months ago, but took down quickly.

It sounds good but most of it wouldnt appeal to me, ill soon have all of WWE's pay per vies on DVD anyway and the stuff from the 70's and 80's wouldn't appeal to me that much, the Monday Night War sounds good but Nitro always sucked in my opinion. The WCW ring is just annoying. ECW might be good but if its not WWE i wouldnt be too interested. Dosen't matter anyway cause ill never see it, so ill step aside and watch you guys salivate.

That's not a bad deal for only the "proposed" $6.95 a month. I'd get it just for the Monday Night War series (hopefully Cole can have something to contribute to that). The Hall of Fame series sounds cool too. But looking to the future (maybe a few years away), I'd like the service to evolve to the point where you just select a wrestler from the menu, and then every single one of his matches from the entire library is listed on the screen to chose from. That would be worth $100 a month.

It has occurred to me that this would be the perfect vehicle to do a tribute to someone like Ray Traylor - someone that everyone seems to have fond memories of, but who probably would never get a DVD set dedicated to them.

A half-hour tribute show, followed by a two-hour chronological history of the star with promos and matches, would be a very cool way to say farewell. Plus it would allow the WWE to gauge if there is enough interest in putting out the show on DVD at some point (which I'm sure they're taking into account with all the other programming as well).

The ONLY bad thing about this is....how stupid is all of that blurring of the WWF scratch logo gonna look? I don't know about anyone else but when I see old footage that's blurred, or hear WWF edited out of commmentary, it irks me. Other than that, this looks FANTASTIC.

Eh, the blurred out logos used to annoy me. But, I've gotten used to them now. It's pretty easy for me to get past them and concentrate on whatever else is going on.

Either way, it's not like there's much anyone can do about it, so this is the only way to go.

I don't think the'll have to worry about music licenses. Case in point, the Benoit/Sid match from Souled Out 2000-on the Benoit DVD, Benoit's theme is over-dubbed while back on an old segment called 'From the Vault' on Excess, it was left intact.

So let me get this straight, i'm still a little fuzzy on the details. If my cable company offers this I can pay a monthly fee for it and then at any time during the week I can choose any of the specials scheduled for that week? Or do you pay for each show your order?

There are 764 registered Wieners, if my math is correct. Let's arbitrarily say that 5% of the IWC is registered here. That would mean that the IWC consists of 15,280 died in the wool smarks. Now, how many households make up a ratings point?
