“Like meth, only more addictive.”

As I am sure most of you WRASSLIN’ fans are aware of, WWE Network is free without any strings for this week. I would have to say that this is a good move on Vince McMahon’s part because all you need is an email address and to see what the Network is all about.

In the first two days of this free stream, I haven’t done much at work.

This thing is pretty cool. I fear though, like the person who quoted it as more addictive than meth, that if I were to subscribe for the six months, I would literally get nothing done at work. My lawn would never get mowed. My dishes would never be washed. I would turn on my laptop or Playstation 4 and just watch it all day. That’s how it is. It’s not just the free pay-per-views or the throwback shows that they have during the afternoon. The original programming is pretty good as well with the Countdown and WrestleMania Rewinds. There are real-life documentaries and stories that the wrestlers tell (It’s steal real to me damnit!).

And for you old folks out there, WWE Network has started adding the special eventsĀ at Madison Square Garden and Nassau Coliseum in the 1980’s. In addition, quite a few epsidoes from Saturday Night’s Main Event in the 1980’s are on here too. And don’t forget probably one of the best matches from that decade with Savage vs. Steamboat at Wrestlemania. The last event that I really enjoyed was Summerslam 1994 which was the first event held at the United Center. Walter Payton and his son were in Scott Hall’s corner as he won the Intercontinental Championship against Diesel.

It’s absolutely worth the $10 a month. With the streaming sites that I currently use, the pay-per-views aren’t in the best quality when streaming and only the original shows are on-demand. Yes, it’s still free for that but the Network has, of course, way more content. I think it’s really neat to see myself at 15 years old cheering on Hulk Hogan as he made his return with the nWo in Rockford on an old episode of Smackdown! compared to the streaming site where I can barely see myself because of the quality.

So if you get it, consider yourself warned. You will be hooked.

    Fascinating…

    Okay, so what are the big stories currently running in WWE, and how have you guys felt about the last few shows that came to Rockford/Chicago?

  2. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Big stories in WWE include

    – John Cena is currently in his 15th championship reign

    – Roman Reigns Superman Push Continues

    – Chris Jericho is back, feuding with The Miz (who also returned) and Bray Wyatt.

    – WWE reportedly looking to cut $20 million from their expenses. They’ve already released a bunch of people including 10 wrestlers. WWE Network subscription numbers are about 70 percent of what they were expecting to “break-even” from a profitability standpoint.

    – Brock Lesnar is expected to return for Summerslam, fight Cena for the title.

    – Seth Rollins has the Money in the Bank briefcase.

    AJ Lee returned and promptly won the Divas title from Paige. That should also shoot down the rumors of her being pregnant. CM Punk is one lucky bastard!

    Look for Dean Ambrose to continue screwing Seth Rollins every time he tries to cash in his MitB contract.

    Brock Lesnar is most likely going to win the World title from John Cena, perhaps as soon as Summerfest…….er, I mean Summerslam. Roman Reigns is being groomed to beat Lesnar at WrestleMania 31. The story here is that they want Reigns to have a big WrestleMania moment by winning the title there.

    Hopefully, the Miz will begin a new movie as soon as his feud with Jericho flops badly, removing that shitstain from WWE programming, and more importantly, OFF OF MY GODDAMNED TV!

    And lastly, according to the rumors, Sting either will or will not sign with the WWE. And I don’t think anyone cares one way or the other.

    That’s all I have for now.

  4. Jeremy Piven Says:

    SUMMERFEST!

  5. chucky Says:

    Wasn’t that Mike Adamle?

  6. Fro Dog Says:

    That was Piven who said it when talking to Cena. Ken Jeong was also in that promo along side Piven.

    DVX, the last show in Rockford was the house show in April and before that, it was a Smackdown! last August. There hasn’t been a Raw in Rockford since 2004 so it would be nice if they had one. Rockford actually, was a great place for Raw and Smackdown to be years ago. Now, they can’t even close to a sellout for anything. It’s sad.

    Chicago, more specifically, Rosemont, always puts on a good show. The trend is, September, December and March, are the months that a show is there with a pay-per-view sometime in the summer. I have been waiting patiently for the Royal Rumble to come to town and you can forget about Wrestlemania due to McMahon wanting huge stadiums to host it. He did the new Meadowlands last year but in the next two years, the 49ers new stadium has it and then, Cowboys Stadium.

    I highly doubt McMahon is going to take Wrestlemania to Soldier Field. He lucked out with the weather at the Meadowlands (likewise for that fucktard, Goodell for the Super Bowl).

    That brings me to this. The last Monday in September is when Raw is in Rosemont next. If Chucky or CS want to go, let me know and we can try to figure out something. We would probably need a package of four to get some decent seats on the TV side so you all have to let me know.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
