This has replaced the Network in Australia.
So you can't watch other Network content only what's on the channel? Wonder if BT Sports will devote a channel to WWE and do the same. Once the UK TV rights are up I could see Sky bidding for them and having Sky Sports WWE.
I still have WWE Network. I really should get rid of it, but it still exists here. I can access old content still, as far as I'm aware. The problem with WWE Network is that Raw/Smackdown aren't aired live (or even the same week) because of the exclusivity deals they have with the fucking Murdoch family

Thanks Skynet. Yea there was an issue with one of the WWE shows (either NXT or Main Event) which aired on the Network before Sky so they had to put that show on delay and region block it.

Raw, Smackdown and NXT are live on BT now so they must just have the rights for those shows and the PPVs (which they put on BT Box Office, although the Cardiff show was "free" on BT). Ocassionallt they had some Network stuff like the Last Ride doc for Taker.

I think Peacock, or a version of it is on Sky so whether they will shut the UK WWE network down and put everything on there I'm not sure. BT wanted to sell to DAZN so whether they would have to give up the WWE rights since it's a competing service idk. BTs WWE rights began in 2020, Sky had it from 89-2019 (they also aired WWE programming from like 84/85 but that predated B-Sky-B/Murdoch owning it).

From what I can tell, the Network will be gone from Australia next month when all of the archived stuff switches over to Binge.

That's what the press release from September said.

It is cheaper and you get all the Binge stuff, so the deal isn't that bad.

I don't know if I believe that, but it's interesting.

Kylie Rae wrestled as Briana Ray on this week's Main Event. Apparently her real name is Briana and her middle name is Rae, so they've gone with that.

She battles mental illness so that's why she left AEW, NWA and Impact. She goes through depressive episodes that made her want to retire. But supposedly she's been doing a lot better with whatever help she gets so she feels she's ready for NXT

Honesty here. I watched the Royal Rumble from 2014 and between that and some of the stuff I've seen lately, I was kinda halfway considering giving the WWE one more shot. But hey, now I don't have to! Yay! Welcome back Vince - shit all over your product once more!

Tony should hire her. The pics are nothing. You can't see anything.
