Make WWE Studios Available on WWE Network

WWE Studios Logo

WWE Network is the home to a lot of original WWE programming, as well as to wrestling history on demand 24/7 (e.g. every WWE, WCW and ECW Pay-Per-View in history, every Raw, SmackDown LIVE and even WCW Nitro in history). While all of this is great, I personally believe there is one other thing that would make WWE Network even greater. That one thing is making every movie that was produced by WWE Studios, from The Scorpion King to Sleight to ones that have yet to be released, available on demand after they are done being shown in theaters. After all, Netflix is known for streaming movies on demand; therefore, I think the best way for WWE Network to beat Netflix is by making WWE Studios movies available on demand.…

Legends In the “House”

tv-wwe-legends-house01

Last night was the premiere episode of Legends’ House on WWE Network. This is a reality show that consists of eight WWE Legends living under one roof in Palm Springs, CA. The eight legends for this first season are “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Jimmy Hart, Pat Patterson, Tony Atlas, Hillbilly Jim, “Mean” Gene Okerlund and Howard Finkel. Each and every one of these legends is a WWE Hall of Famer; with the exception of Hillbilly Jim. I do, however, believe that he we will one day go into the WWE Hall of Fame. I would also like to point out that there is an additional cast member this season. She is a young, blonde, attractive woman named Ashley. Ashley is the events coordinator for the legends and based on the fact that she said that she was sent to the house on behalf of WWE, I am going to assume that she works for the company. I have already gotten to see these legends like I have never seen them before (i.e.; interacting with neighbors, going grocery shopping, playing tennis, cooking, trying to figure out how to use a blender, etc.) and the show is just getting started. …

Where There’s Wrestling, There’s Backstabbers

On this week’s edition of WWE Countdown on the WWE Network, the top ten back stabbings in history were counted down. My prediction for number one was either the infamous “Montreal Screw Job” that took place at Survivor Series 1997 between Mr. McMahon, Shawn Michaels, and Bret Hart or when Shawn Michaels super kicked his Rockers tag team partner Marty Jannetty and threw him through a plate-glass window. Well, I was right on the money because the “Montreal Screw Job” was listed at number two and Shawn Michaels’ attack on Marty Jannetty was listed at number one. While I thought the ones that made the list were good ones, there are also some good ones that I think could have made the list. For instance, I think the night that Stone Cold Steve Austin aligned himself with Mr. McMahon at WrestleMania 17 was a good one. Another good one is when Christian turned his back on Edge back in 2001. One thing about that betrayal is the fact that while Christian had every intention of skyrocketing his career and plummeting Edge’s, it ultimately backfired because from that point on, Edge was on his way to becoming a very successful singles …

WWE Goes “Beyond the Ring”

Beyond the Ring

As many people may know, the WWE Network is up and running. There are definitely some interesting original programs on there. One of those programs is called “Beyond the Ring”. This program shows behind-the-scenes documentaries from DVDs/Blue Ray discs courtesy of WWE Home Video. Below are the documentaries that the WWE Network has aired thus far.

 

Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart

 

This is the documentary that gives the inside scoop on the classic rivalry between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart both inside and outside of the ring. One interesting fact people will find out is the fact that the animosity between these two started quite some time before the infamous “Montreal Screw Job” took place. I am definitely glad that they ended up patching things up in the end.

 

Stone Cold Steve Austin

 

This is a documentary that tells the story about Stone Cold’s rise to fame. It goes back to his early days in WCCW and USWA to his average rise in WCW and ECW all the way to his rise to superstardom in WWE. There were definitely a lot of interesting things shown in this, but there is one thing that wasn’t shown that I wish …

The “WWE Countdown” Is On

WWE Countdown

WWE Network has officially launched and it includes all-new original programs. One of those programs is called Countdown. Countdown is a program where WWE counts down numerous top ten things in history. In the premiere episode, WWE counted down the top ten catchphrases in history. The list included famous catchphrases like Booker T’s “Can you dig it, Sucka?”, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s “If you Smell what The Rock…is cookin’”, Daniel Bryan’s “Yes! Yes! Yes!” and more. The #1 catchphrase was none other than Ric Flair’s “Woooooo!”. One catch phrase that was “Above and Beyond” the list was Vincent K. McMahon’s “You’re Fired!”. One of the best parts about the premiere episode of this program was that not only was Vickie Guerrero’s “Excuse Me!” not mentioned once, but Vickie was not shown on this episode at all; I guess there is a God. Based on this premiere episode, I truly believe there are more awesome things to come on Countdown.…
