Nice to see a pre Yoko match from tv tapings and cool that Simmons/Vader in full exists with commentary. Was it supposed to air in full?

 

Probably unlikely the Steiners/Anderson & Eaton Cage Match was filmed.

Eh, I thought their match was sloppy, rough around the edges and not the sort of thing you'd want to debut them on TV with, but it was nowhere near as bad as people have made it out to be. Honestly, the worst thing about it was the horrifically obnoxious crowd that were literally just waiting for anything slightly imperfect they could shit all over. I mean, when you've got a guy yelling "Boring!" immediately after the opening lock-up, you might as well just burn the fucking building down. 

 
Absolutely, I watched it yesterday and after Jericho's description of it in his book I was expecting a trainwreck but it was far from it. Hell there are spots in that famous ECW TV title 4 way that Jericho blew worse than in this RVD match. It wasn't a classic by any means but there were some cool spots executed well there, I agree the crowd really were just being dicks and overly critical which with all the praise the ECW fans get romanticized with today this is a prime example of how prickish of a crowd they were at times.

Pretty much my sentiments. The crowd was so harsh on it, that it made the match seem much worse than it was. Decent match and enjoyable to see both guys at that stage or their careers.

I also watched the Eddie and Liger match from WCW Main Event. The crowd doesn't crap on it, they just don't respond to anything. The crowd noise that is audible appears to be canned. Fun match overall.

Sometimes I don't realize how much a crowd can take me out of a match.

That Steiners one would definitely be awesome to see. I'm a sucker for anything in Chicago. I missed that one and still regret it.

I'm just really, really hoping that the full Christmas Night Liger/Pillman match is in the vault somewhere. The JIP version is so swank. I want the rest.

We're a couple of days away from having some sense on just what this is going to look like on a week-to-week basis. I don't know how the network works. Will we have some sense tomorrow or Weds or nothing til Thursday?

I think last week they were revealed on Monday, but today being a holiday probably threw that off.

 

The random dumpings in the past have always been revealed beforehand so fingers crossed we get a new list tomorrow or Wednesday. 

 

I don't know if they'll be dropping 20 a week though. That seems fairly extravagant.

If it is a weekly drop, it's pretty much the NWA On Demand Houston service, just for pretty much everything.

Not breaking any new ground here but I can confirm Piper vs. Valentine is great. If there are a good number of really good to great Piper matches out there, he might climb considerably the next GWE.

Is there a way to see a list of only the new ones on WWE Network instead of having to scroll through all of them and look for the yellow "Recently Added" banner?

Not what I was asking though...

Is there a way to see the new additions listed together on the WWE Network service itself?

Brisco/Flair, that's awesome. hope it's a long match. This might be Jack's last NWA Title shot.

It will be interesting to see how much we get this week. If it's one match, that will really hurt the concept for a lot of people. Guess we will soon find out.

Yes, but if it's just one match, at least it's that match?

The language clearly indicates more than one match. But even if it's two or three, it's interesting weekly content.

I'll take Brisco/Flair any day of the week. I've read it goes about 30min and even though Jack is past his prime it still should be a very good match.
