Best things to watch on the network?


Recommended Posts

Goldberg is so fascinating to watch, everything he does is needlessly stressful to him or mentioning his age, how hard and monotonous working out is, 24, Chronicle and On the day of are great snippets into his brain, he seems to need constant validation.

No wonder guys like Nash, Hall and Hogan got in his head and made him a paranoid wreck in wcw

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.

Xavier Woods and Tyler Breeze have started watching ECW from the start together on twitch on Mondays. It's really cool to see two current guys' jokes and comments on this old stuff, as well as 'talking shop', as it were. They're also predicting the finish of each match and awarding points based on how close they are.

I wonder how long it will be til WWE cotton on to what they're doing and put a stop to it, or steal the idea to put on their own version. Because it's tremendous fun. Breeze's reaction to Sandman originally being a surfer gimmick and that's why he's called The Sandman has been a particular highlight, Only thing is you have to catch it live, because they've restricted the VODs to subscribers. The last time they did this was 5pm on Monday, so maybe it will be a weekly thing.

If anyone's interested, I'll post a link here when they're live.

so weird seeing icw shows on the wwe network, music appears untouched on the wwe side, one or two things i noticed so far was the sound from the chair shot to the head was muted and grados entrance was edited out and exit edited out including the line "like a virgin"

Had a skim of the indie stuff that went up at the weekend. The Progress show seems to be lifted directly from their own OnDemand so I imagine that will get shut down eventually.

Watched wXw Ambition 11 and got bored part way through. I’ll watch more stuff as it’s added because I know that this was a particular type of tournament and not indicative of what the promotion usually puts on.

The 24 on this year's WrestleMania is out. They've got a five minute cut of Braun's history and story that makes him more than pretty much anything he's ever done on TV. How do they keep doing this?

Miz and Big E’s exchange on Talking Smack is worth seeking out, pretty intense and gives you an idea on where Big E’s head is at right now.

Kayla Braxton is a terrible host mind, Miz was fantastic as usual so hopefully he stays instead of Xavier but we’ll see.

Couldn't agree more. Have never seen much of anything in Braun, even when it seemed cool to like him. But WOW, he showed so much to like as a real human being. I get it, it's easy to discuss and show emotion when it's real life happenings that you lived through but damn, surely this could have been manipulated into a character.

But hey, modern WWE. A company who are so out of touch that they make their 1995 output look like cutting edge, storyline masterpieces.

Couple more bits added to the ‘Independents’ section:

ICW Shug’s House Party 5 - Day 1 (WALTER V BT Gunn, Lionheart v Jackie Polo), Progress: Chapter 77- Pumpkin Spice Progress (WALTER v Zack Sabre Jr), EVOLVE 125 (Kyle O’Reily v an alleged nonce), WXW Toronto (WALTER v Daisuke Sekimoto, Timothy Thatcher v Yuki Ishikawa)

As with the previous one on Bret and Owen Hart's 1993-94 feud, the new episode of Timeline (WWE Network) covering Christian vs Randy Orton is thoroughly entertaining. Can't be many better storylines from the past decade. It's episodic, logical, slow-burning and satisfying, elevating the stock of both guys and getting a load of feature matches out of them, with changing dynamics throughout.

The Timeline they've just put up from The Rock's debut through his joining the Nation and becoming leader is a fun watch. One of my favourite periods to look back on. Rock's growth is incredible but Faarooq is brilliant throughout it. "Get yo ass back here, boy" is one of my favourite lines of all the times. Bonus, it's free content.

Thanks to @AshC, I watched the Christian/Orton Timeline too which is also very good.

I always loved the "You just beggin' me to whoop yo ass aintchu" line from No Way Out.

I've got to echo the love for Timeline. I remember chatting with a friend (a member on here who has since passed away) years ago, saying that they should do a programme that recaps feuds and I'm so chuffed they've finally done it. Watched two episodes so far and have loved it. Great to see the Orton/Christian rivalry documented as that was the sleeper feud of the year. Just great stuff.
