Because growing the brand and giving people more exposure? I think their UK coverage is lacking, so promoting their local talent is a plus.

UK wrestling is getting more popular so it makes sense that wwe gets in on that action. Where I live we have a monthly wrestling show and it is packed out solid every time now if wwe start promoting a British show weekly on network they could pack out a arena easily and even go on the road and pack it out.

I've had it on as background noise and I'm through the first half of the tournament. I wouldn't say (so far) that it is as exciting as the cruiserweight classic, but that's partly by design. Instead there is a different type of performance, some of which is a lot of fun to watch. The atmosphere is much different too due to the red hot local crowd.

You can also tell that Michael Cole is having a blast. He's just calling the matches instead of feeding us tons of info and you can hear in his voice how much fun he is having, especially at the end of the last match.

Some of the characters are bland and some are very intriguing. Pete Dunn has caught my eye in a big way, he's very Finlay-esque. Tyler Bate is 19 years old, but you'd never guess it from watching him. He's stacked with talent and charisma.

It's a very long watch, which is a negative compared to the CWC, but all in all it's definitely worth a watch.

Just watched Bring it to the Table. Peter Rosenberg (I don't know who he is but I recognise the name) sits with JBL and Paul Heyman to cover some pressing topics. I thought this was really refreshing, especially with how "behind the scenes" it was, even in comparison to the other things. From asking if Raw should be 3 hours, to Connor McGregor calling out WWE and even discussing Hulk Hogan being removed from the company.

I think Paul was a bit too confrontish at some points, but all in all it was a great show and I hope they do more.

Peter Rosenburg. Dude is a huge wrestling fan and he even had Daniel Bryan on a few years ago where Bryan talked about going to a Panera with Cody Rhodes and the Ryback. Funny stuff.

I enjoyed the vibe and feel of the show too and I hope they do more and possibly rotate a new guest in with JBL, Paul, and Peter.

I need Pete Dunn in WWE. Dude is literally a modern day Finlay, so much fun to watch and such a genuine bad guy.

Tyler Bate is so damn good, I'm truly struggling to believe that he is only 19. Besides just general wrestling ability, he is so on point with mannerisms and expressions. He's able to tell a compelling story and put on a good or better match at an age at which a majority of wrestlers haven't even begun to train yet. He's another one who needs to be snapped up asap for WWE.

Another fantastic edition of WWE 24. Seeing Vince get visibly emotional when Shane and his grandkids were on the stage at Wrestlemania was pretty special.

That and seeing the reaction of Linda, his wife, and kids seeing him free fall was something. That shit was insane!

I watched the first ever WWE 24 that was shot around Mania 30. The behind the scenes stuff with Warrior, little Connor, and seeing Hogan, Rock, and Austin interact was great to see.

HHH seems to have taken a liking to him.

My favorite original shows on the Network are the Ride Along and Swerved and Legends House. I tried Camp WWE, it wasn't that great I think, I don't know just something about it turns me off of it.

I watched both the UK tournament and the Cruiserweight tournament and so far prefer the Cruiserweight tournament.

I believe they will be setting up secondary Network show like 205 Live for the UK side of things

Christian describing Kurt Angle at his wedding on Table for 3 is one of the funniest things I've ever watched.

That episode is up? Well I know what I'm starting after work. Table for 3 is consistently one of the better shows on the Network. I'm looking forward to the one with Jim Cornette and Eric Bischoff.

Triple H getting emotional behind the scenes when Finn gave up his championship after Summerslam, it's only on screen for a moment but it's really powerful.
