The old Raws were epic. I can't stand watching WWE now though, all their social media stuff does my head in and the story lines are absolutely terrible. Since it went PG it's all gone down hill in my opinion I'm afraid.

Completely agree. Barely wastch it anymore. Still tape it on skip threw about 2 hours and 50 mins off it. Which is pretty bad considering the show is only 3 hours long. Ahhh the Attitude era how I miss it not a single moment was missable from people like Crash Holly to the big guns like Stone Cold all of them had a good story lines.

 

I don't view WWE as a sport I view it as a soap. I know it's fake/scripted at least it use to be entertainming unlike EastEnders or what ever the crap is on TV. But yer ever since it went PG it went down hill pretty quick. Not its just Super man this and Total Divas that and download the app here.

Would consider subbing for a month or 2 to watch the attitude era again. Haven't watched it for over ten years now but to have that massive archive available would be awesome.

I'm guessing Sky will be putting up a lot of resistance to this, so maybe they need to work things out.

@Ocelot exactly!! I've never seen it as a sport either, but back in the 90s it was some of best entertainment around!! Like you say they had stone cold running around like a nutter, the rock, triple H being badass and the stories were great fun!

Even the lesser know wrestlers were good to watch in hardcore matches when the belt was on the line 24/7 and you had the Dudley's, hardys and edge and Christian scrapping for the tag belts. It really was a beast.

I've tried to watch it now and I just can't, some of it is laughable in a bad way.

Good point about sky though, does this WWE app contain ppvs if you sign up? Sorry if it already said in op post but it was a lot to read lol.

Well as I usually do I skip threw most of RAW as it bores me. I noticed NAO (new age outlaws) have been on it the past 2 weeks are they back permanently now? I hope so they where the best back in the 90s. Might actually watch smackdown for the first time in 4-5 years if there on it.

Don't think they are back permanently just for story purpose for cm punk vs triple h at mania. Would be good to have this wwe network just to relive those old raws. Still remember when stone cold hit Vince with the bed pan!
