6 Shows WWE Network Should Produce

With the WWE network on the horizon in 2014, or anytime they feel like it, the biggest aspect to consider is the programming. To make it worth the monthly subscription price, they have to pull out all the stops.

The question is what will they show? A “Best of the Great Khali” match series? How about more unreleased footage from the debut of Akeem? I got it, how about a loop of the Vince McMahon Music video?? What about a year in review of 1995 WWE? No? Well ok, I tried.

According to the 50 Years of WWE documentary, the company possesses over 100,000 hours of vault footage from WCW, to Ecw, to Awa and much more. Surely they cannot just rotate matches or else it would just be the on demand service all over again. So if WWE is reading this, and I am sure they are, here are 6 show concepts based on reality that are marketable and,

‘The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment’ Blu-ray Review

The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment begins with Vince McMahon getting out of his car at WWE headquarters in Connecticut and greeting employees as he makes his way to his office on the top floor of what was once known as TitanTowers.

The documentary portion of this release begins at the beginning, with information about Jess McMahon and Vince McMahon Sr, and how they began what we now know as WWE. Jess McMahon was a boxing promoter, his son Vince, turned it into a traditional regional professional wrestling promotion, and his son, the current head of WWE, Vince McMahon Jr, turned it into the multimedia conglomerate that we know today.

The talking heads are extremely relevant and well picked, it is nice to see the big names from wrestling’s history on here, talking about the history of WWE as a company and the wrestling business as a whole.

WWE 12 – Full Roster Of Over 75 Wrestlers Revealed

WWE 12 will finally hit stores on Tuesday (in the U.S.) and on Friday (in the U.K.) and after some stellar reviews in the last few days, I don’t remember being this excited about a wrestling video game in years. IGN’s 9.0 scoring review mentioned the gameplay was ‘No Mercy like’ several times and there is actually a combat system here that makes sense and isn’t just a flashy presentation with no substance to the graphics. But then they still have the graphics and all the cool modes and the first time, Thq’s video game franchise feels like it belongs on the shelf alongside the mastered EA sports franchises of FIFA and Madden. IGN overall called it ‘amazing’.

Over the past few months, Thq have teased us as to what wrestlers will be included in the game and now on the eve of release we have a final figure.
