The The Best of Saturday Night’s Main Event DVD will be coming to the network and the beyond the ring section. This is quite an odd addition since all SNMEs have been added to the network over the past year. This DVD was from 2009 and was likely added to give the live stream an additional show to fill time.
This Monday following RAW, the Randy Savage Story will air for the first rime and be added to the Beyond the Ring section. This is one of the quickest turnarounds for a WWE DVD along side the Paul Heyman DVD documentary.
Also, as next month begins the network will add season 5 of WWE Tough Enough. This is the most recent season from 2011 which featured Stone Cold as the host. The trainers for the show were Booker T, Bill Demott, and Trish Status.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Shaw Cable in Western Canada will now have the WWE Network. Also, it will be available on Shaw Direct.
The WWE Network has added shows taking a look at the 1994, 1995, and 1996 Hall of Fame inductions. These were not originally shot for television so Renee Young and Mean Gean take part in a 45 minute look back at those shows with clips throughout.
The network also recently added many missing RAWs from 1996 but the RAW Bowl wasn’t one of them which still has many asking when that will be. RAW episodes 171, 172, and 174 which brings us to episode 180 with show 178 needing to be uploaded. It will likely but added shortly as we have seen many RAW updates recently.
The WWE Network will air the WWE 24 episode that was originally scheduled for a February 23rd debut. This was scrapped last week to play a marathon celebrating the best of the network from year one. Be sure to catch the debut after RAW as this will be unseen footage that was originally planned for a WWE Booker T DVD set.
Today, as expected the full Hall of Fame ceremonies were added to the on demand section of the network. This will include the shows since the annual reboot of the ceremony in 2004 at Wrestlemania XX. They don’t have shows added for the 1994-1996 classes as they were not intended to be shown for television at the time and this could be the reason behind not including them.
On another note, the Black History section of the Vault has been removed as we begin March and bring an end to that theme. It was mentioned that some MSG shows were added to the correct section but nearly all other content has been purged as was the case with the 12 days of attitude.
The WWE Network added the first RAW in over a week to on demand. It is the 7/29/96 dated show which was Undertaker vs Stone Cold in the main event from the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
This weekend the WWE Network live feed will debut the Bret Hart Dungeon Collection but you can catch it now in the Beyond the Ring section.
Prime Time Wrestling saw the first sizable update of the week today. You can now catch episodes 75-80 on demand.
Network viewers can now find five newly added RAW in the on demand section. These shows take RAW to almost the end of July 1996. These shows around the 1996 King of the Ring really provide a good look at the start of Austin’s rise to popularity and a slant towards the attitude era.
The WWE Network email account has announced that the next WWE 24 episode will debut on February 23rd following Monday Night RAW. This will feature Booker T and his rise to greatness. No details are known at this moment but I would assume it will be a mini-documentary that chronicles his troubles with the law and his later rise to success as a top superstar.
