Edge's WWE 24 is probably the best Network content ever. It's surely impossible to sit through it and not see the wonderful side of this silly business.   

RVD is a hell of a lot more iconic to the people who watched wrestling when it mattered than the vast majority of stars they've attempted to create in years since.

Does the Network still have collections? They had a really good nWo one at one point.

They've got "essentials" now.  There's 5 or 6 of them on there, but I think it's just match compliations....no promos, moments, interviews etc.

It made my day when I saw there was a new little doc about Dennis Rodman's WCW run, I loved Rodzilla when I was a teen.

It was surprising to see so much plaque on Bischoff's teeth in his horrifyingly close up talking head segments, I though Easy E was a brush 3 times a day kind of guy.

Have they stopped the annoying PG or TV-14 inserts with that little tune? I was just thinking about how I watched something last night and I don't remember seeing it. Used to drive me nuts when watching those collections as it would come up every time between each part.

Finally signed up to the network and am revisiting Early 1990's late 1980's Tag Team Wrestling, having watched the Survivor Series Multiman tag once more and the Rockers vs Orient Express  Rumble 1991 and Rockers vs Brain Busters from Nov 1989

What are the best Powers of Pain matches up on the Network? Ditto Rougeaus, Beverly Brothers, Power and Glory (Summerslam 91?). Anything from WCW i should be watching as well/

Caught the ruthless aggression episode on Cena today. It's made me realise how significant his role was in holding together the wwe over a 10 year period and he's comfortably up there with the likes of the Undertaker and Triple H as a great and I daresay he deserves to be considered amongst Hogan, Rock and Austin. Excellent viewing. 

His intensity and charisma in OVW was something else. Could quite easily watch a 6 part series on his career as this episode scratched the surface.

Cena's a level down. He's brilliant but that top level are in a different league when it comes to drawing money. Cena's not up there.

Hmmm. I suppose that depends on what we'll class as drawing money.

In terms of merchandise or ticket sales, or both? It's intriguing, because I would say Cena has probably earned more in terms of selling merchandise than Rock or Austin

Cena was a draw. But he was on top throughout a downturn in business. Absolutely no doubt that it would have been a worse downturn without him but still. Hogan and Austin both boomed business to unprecedented levels. Rock drew massively in and out of wrestling. Hardly anyone else is on that level.

It's a tough one, because I think Cena is a level up from Undertaker and Triple H, but he's a level down from Hogan, Rock and Austin.

He's kind of in the middle of those two groups on his own.

Hogan was wrestling throughout the 80's during the boom period, and into the early 90's. Austin was the main man during the attitude era when wrestling was mega-hot again. Rock is up there due to his crossover appeal as well as his wrestling career.

I can't put Cena in that group.
