maglogo-raw1st
This week will wrap up the 1993 year of WWF RAW. It took around 2 months for the network to move through one season of 1 hour RAWs. This Tuesday at 10AM EST, the network will begin the 1994 with the January 3rd episode from that year.

The network previews the show with “Will Lex Luger compete in the Royal Rumble? The Smoking Guns square-off against Bam Bam Bigelow & Bastian Booger in Tag Team action“.


Countdown replaced by Best of HOF?

This weeks network schedule is noticeably absent of WWE Countdown. Instead Tuesday has the Best of HOF listed in its normal time slot. Also, another episode is listed for Wednesday. It is likely that the first season of Countdown has ended and more are being produced for a new season.

The first two show of Best of HOF will feature Hogan & Trish Stratus ‘s inductions. The Wednesday airing will feature Kane inducting Pete Rose and Ric Flair’s first induction.


New Best of the Hall of Fame show coming?

411mania.com is reporting that a new Best of the Hall of Fame show will debut soon. They report that it will feature speeches from various inductions. The old WWE on demand channel had a similar feature that showcased a talents speech and would have matches from that superstar. This could possibly be similar to how this show will be constructed.

Tonight marked the launch of one of WWE’s original programs. This show has been in the works for a couple of years and was shot some time in 2011 or 2012 according to TMZ.com in a 2012 report. The cast includes Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Jimmy Hart, Roddy Piper, Hillbilly Jim, Pat Patterson, Tony Atlas, The Fink, and “Mean” Gene Okerlund. Initial reactions have been mixed on the program but I haven’t seen anything overly negative at this time. It is uncertain how many episodes were shot and when the series run will conclude.


Network coming to New media players

According to Pwinsider.com, the WWE Network will be available on several new platforms this spring . Those mentioned are Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, and connected TVs and Blu-Ray players.

The article also made several mentions of new features being considered such as playlists and more personalization. However, none of these have been confirmed by the Network but I feel they are very likely.
