Watching the Cruiserweight Classic really highlights how stale and lame WWE's regular presentation is.

Imagine Raw if:
* You take the camera work, the graphics, the staging, the announcing, Corey Grave's breakdowns, and the regulations of the Cruiserweight Classic.
* Add short 5 minute in ring promos, like Samoa Joe’s NXT promo, once per hour.
* Add short cinematics, like Lucha Underground except with a more serious tone, like once or twice an hour.

Those three hours would be so much easier to watch. You could even show that to a non-wrestling fan, and they would instantly get it.

Maybe that could be the world of WWE once HHH has full control.

I think there's room for both types of presentation, or a combination of both. Because for all the positives endless just laid out, I watched the first episode and the bracketology-style preview they had, and if you don't know who a guy is before this whole thing starts out in terms of previous accomplishments or other places they've worked, they have done almost zip to tell you who these people are. For a good portion of this audience, at least half of the guys are brand new to them and this presentation style doesn't really lend itself to getting to know people in a short amount of time...

You know, in a single-elimination tournament where you might only get one good look at someone. You know, heaven forbid you take some time to tell me who this is and why I really should care.

But then again, I'm the guy who doesn't care about Cesaro even though he's unquestionably talented in the ring. And that's because he literally has no character beyond strong guy who likes to wear rip-away suits, swing people, and throw all the european uppercuts

That show breakdown is so incredibly casual viewer unfriendly.

Which is exactly why Raw is on USA and the CWC is on the WWE Network

I am aware, but l can't take any criticism of Mongo for this reason.

Fair enough. Weird, I suppose because he's Mongo, but we don't choose who we love

Another great episode of Legends with JBL. Hearing Booker T's story is both heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time.The fact that he is alive and free, let alone as accomplished as he is is a miracle within itself.

The Madusa episode, and the one with Hall and Nash should be fun to watch whenever they are available.

The Stone Cold podcast with Dean Ambrose was...an odd/interesting watch.

Jack Gallagher is stupidly entertaining and ridiculously smooth in the ring. Technical chain wrestling usually doesn't keep my attention if the pace is too slow (especially submission holds which have no chance of winning a match) but I can't take my eyes off Jack just to see what ridiculous (in a good way) stunt he pulls.

In the content collection they have all of the build up between Triple H and Shawn Michaels from 2002 leading to their match at Summerslam (Shawn's first match in 4 years). It features everything relevant from every week of TV and PPV up to the actual match.

I still remember actually watching this on TV 14 years ago as a 12 year old and absolutely loving it. I'd never seen Shawn wrestle before and J.R did a fantastic job of hyping up how special this match was going to be as a result of Shawn being in it. I'm enjoying reliving it all.

The Womens WWE 24 was incredible. They told such a fantastic story and didn't pull any punches about the role of women in wrestling in the past and how it got to the point it is at now. This is the sort of content that you almost wish was available on television for the general public to see just for how good it is and how well it reflects on WWE and the women. This is the sort of thing I'd want to watch on ESPN and the sort of thing I can imagine the non wrestling audience that watch Total Divas would want to watch.

Agreed. I'd at least do a one off showing on NBC, E!, or USA and have one of the women, preferably Sasha, appear with Coach to promote it.

Had to watch the WWE 24 on the Women's Evolution. Damn, nearly brings a tear to the eye with how well done it is and showing how far women in WWE have come.

So, my mom really allows me to get a credit card for 25 dollars and that is
the limit I could only spend but just for the network is fine with me.
I'm getting it next weekend so i'll be amped up on Backlash when I go
back to my new place.

So no more of isrs missing the ppvs again.
