That's right you heard on RAW, the network is only 9.99. With the Network you get all the WWE PPVs plus live events, nxt, WCW/ECW stuff and original content.

I'm really surprised with the recent numbers being so low for the WWE Network. The Network is one of the best things to hit the wrestling scene since the Attitude Era. I've used since it came out in Feb and I've enjoyed everything on it. I really hope WWE succeed with it but it does need some improvements. Such as tough enough seasons.

Since I'm UK i've been using a proxy server to access however come October I will have it legit since it comes out a the day after my Birthday Oct 1st.

Who else has it?

I don't need that much wrestling content and now it's going to ruin RAW even more because RAW is bascily a three hour plug to buy the network. The 9.99 is going to take over now. Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and JBL never shut up about it, always over selling it. "It's better than netflix", I'm sure netflix has more than 700,000 subcribers.

Probably never going it get it.

I have it, but I don't use it very much, mostly just new PPVs and sometimes NXT. My nephew is more into watching the old PPVs though, so at least somebody on my account is getting some good use out of the archive. I'll probably watch some of the Monday Night Wars though, I'm pretty excited for that. And Tough Enough would be a great addition, especially the first two seasons. Overall, I'm happy with the Network, the PPVs alone are worth the price. Much better than watching on a sketchy, choppy stream that freezes every few minutes.

As for low sub numbers and junk, I don't really bother with it too much. Honestly, I would say around 700,000 should have been expected for the US.

I will say I did get somewhat annoyed on Monday with the constant plugging of the Network though. It was funny at first, but they really overdid it. It got to the point where I could understand if someone decided not to get it because of how annoying they were about it. Hopefully it was a one time thing and they don't make that a trend.

I heard they we're extremely happy because they almost got a 9.99 chant going. They should play it cool like they don't care if you buy it or not. Reverse psychology and junk.

To be fair this is the only real time they've really plugged. The app has been plugged way more then the Network.

Yeah because of last week's reveal of how low the subscriber count was. It's shameless plugging and makes them look desperate.

It was said by F4Wonline.com in this week's newsletter that Triple H is angry at WWE fans if they're not subscribing to the WWE Network with the idea that fans are cheap.

Constantly rip on the fans, piss them off with poor Pay-Per-Views, piss them off even further with CENAWINSLOL everytime, then make fun of IWC, then call the fans who don't want to buy the WWE Network cheap... I can see why people are rushing to give Triple H their money...

If people don't want to buy it, saying "9.99" a shit load of times isn't going to change their minds.

I see your point. I agree with Cena Wins lol as well kinda sucks no matter who has the title they are always feed to Cena. But it is cheap price for the amount of content that is given.

So are they going to get people hooked with "Hey look, Summerslam, Cena doesn't win" and then soon as people are locked in for a year, then "CENAWINSLOL" until renewals are coming up, WWE get a popular part timer, etc, etc... This is the reason Brock Lesnar is working SummerSlam and Night of Champions. What happens after Night of Champions? Brock Lesnar retains and hold it till WrestleMania 31 or...well you know...

I see your point, I'm on about the content on the network is worth its cheap price.

It sucks that WWE have gotten themselves into a mess and they have no one to take Cena's place. By the end of NOC he will have the belt. There is no one to replace Cena.

Wyatt keeps getting buried.
Reigns sucks he has less moves then Cena
Bryan with the title sucked and I don't look forward to him having the belts again.

Seth and Dean is the only hope we have4

The content is worth it if you have time to watch it. I wouldn't be able to stand watching that much wrestling.

Roman Reigns is way overrated. His three moves are all running (Superman Punch, Running Leg Drop and Spear). His house show matches with Randy Orton was booed because they were that bad. WWE are grooming him to be the #2 guy, they are just going to keep doing this with him.


Bray Wyatt losing once to Chris Jericho isn't really burying him because he'll get his win back at SummerSlam and then maybe a second at Night of Champions. Chris Jericho isn't a piece of shit who is scared of losing in case someone take his spot. The John Cena feud is what hurt Bray Wyatt. Lost clean to John Cena at WrestleMania, won at Extreme Rules in a cage match that had TONS of interference. John Cena was never pinned. Then lost at Payback and Money in the Bank.

Daniel Bryan's title run was bad because he had no real challengers. They just put the mask on Kane and had him face Daniel Bryan because Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista was busy feuding with The Shield.

I think it could be a while before Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Eva Marie beats AJ Lee..... That's how much WWE gives a shit about their fans.
