The WWE Network is FINALLY available in Canada….sort of…

The WWE Network is FINALLY available in Canada....sort of... The day has finally arrived where the WWE Network debuts worldwide including, arguably, it's second biggest market, and neighbour to the north, Canada.  While the WWE Network has been available through alternate means, in Canada and worldwide, since it launched in February 2014, today is the first day it has become available...

6 Months In: My WWE Network Experience and Review

6 Months In: My WWE Network Experience and Review Six months ago, WWE took an unparalleled venture into television history; a 24-hour "over-the-top" streaming service, featuring both live and on-demand programming.  Hyped for nearly 2 years, expectations were understandably high, given WWE's access to a vast number of historical tape libraries, as well as their move to...

Monday Night RAW #OldSchool HITS AND MISSES 01/06/2014

Monday Night RAW #OldSchool HITS AND MISSES 01/06/2014 Monday Night RAW HITS: Overall Show: The first Raw of the new year was an absolute blast for this viewer, at home, to watch.  Sure, having a themed episode of Raw might not have been the best idea to begin the new year (especially when it was a throwback to "old school"), but more than enough happened on this episode...

Monday Night Raw, 12/9/2013 HITS and MISSES

Monday Night Raw, 12/9/2013 HITS and MISSES HITS • To call the final segment of Raw this week a hit wouldn't be fair. It was more like a home run. A game-winning one. Maybe even a walkoff game-winning homer. It was as close to a perfect segment as we've seen in a long, long time. Not only did it make me actually laugh and react, it made me extremely interested...

Raw HITS AND MISSES, Dec. 2, 2013

HITS Randy Orton and John Cena: Partially on the strength of some clever footage of the long history between the two, partially on the strength of a great promo by Triple H, partially on the strength of the decision to unify the WWE and World championships and partially on the strength of a great final segment, I'm suddenly...

Monday Night RAW 06/17/2013 HITS and MISSES In what will be a weekly column going forward, I will be writing about each week's Monday Night RAW; both "hits" (the stuff you need to see), and "misses" (the stuff you can do without).  I'd love to hear your feedback on the columns, as well.  You can reach me at [email protected] WWE RAW HITS [caption id="attachment_592"...

Attitude Is Everything: The Forgotten DX Founder

Attitude Is Everything: The Forgotten DX Founder By the second Raw after Summerslam 97 business really started to pick up. We saw Shawn Michaels turn on the fans, Rocky Maivia join the nation of domination, and a solid two months of Paul Bearer screeching "Kane is Alive!"   The biggest development we saw at this time was the formation of a group that changed...

Cousineau’s review of The RAW After WrestleMania

Cousineau's review of The RAW After WrestleMania [caption id="attachment_25" align="aligncenter" width="642"] The Rock poses with the WWE Championship - Photo Credit: WWE.com[/caption] I hate to be the one to say I told you so, but I told you so. This past week's Monday Night RAW was absolutely off-the-charts. It was so good, in fact, that I'm not even sure where to...
