Their promotion of the Network is so small now. It went from $9.99 being said every 10 seconds to basically nothing. Corey Graves makes the odd mention to old footage you could watch, but I'd guess that all comes from him. They hype it on the PPV pre-shows, but I'd bet more people are already watching that on the Network, rather than on YouTube or Facebook. I think they majorly overestimate the power of Twitter and Facebook. Vince probably think that all the likes and follows means each and every one of those people read everything they put out. I think they only decided that date this week, and they will probably run trailers on 205 Live and NXT this week.

It's all a bit of a mess, since they needed to show episode 1 of the UK show before TakeOver: Chicago. Then they spoiled the first show by announcing the UK match for TakeOver last week.

They finally mentioned mentioned the UK series tonight on Raw, and I got an e-mail about it.  They send out about an e-mail a week which covers things much more thoroughly than anything they say on TV.  It's actually helpful to me, but I don't know how many people read them or how many people even used their primary e-mail to sign up.  I could've easily have given them my spam e-mail.

This month's drop is the final 50 episodes of TNT. With only 50 episodes, they might well upload some other classic content too.

The next episode of Table for 3 will debut Monday after Raw, featuring Ric Flair, Bruno Sammartino and Bob Orton.

The Kurt Angle WWE 24 documentary will debut in July.

WWE has uploaded all but one episode of TNT, so that series is all but complete in the Vault section of the WWE Network.

Do you know what episode is missing, and if so, is it also missing from the original run that was on WWE 24/7?

Episode 31. The one with Jerry Graham. Jimmy Hart sang California Girls, which they would probably need to cut.

I know I've seen bits of that Graham interview posted either on Youtube or Daily Motion. There were rumors that Vince was entertaining the possibility of throwing him a bone and hiring him, but it just didnt work out.

What's happened to the UK show? I thought we were getting a weekly show. They did two days of TV tapings and all we got was 4 matches. One of which was a 205 Live match, pretty much, and they spoiled the two main events in canon by announcing the UK match at TakeOver before airing the two matches that set it up on the UK show. The in-ring action is great, but the organization is rubbish at the moment.

I remember last summer, they managed to keep their storyline straight across NXT and the CWC, with both live and taped shows included so there was continuity with Gargano & Ciampa across both shows.

I had stayed away from watching TNT but started from the beginning. I didn't have cable growing up and thought it was all skits and talk from what I heard. Nice to see so many matches and a lot of the interviews and skits are good.
And the first episode made me think of Convoy.

Table for 3 is usually one of my favorite Network shows. My only complaint usually being that the episodes are only 20 minutes long when they could easily be an hour or more. The latest episode is Maryse, Eve Torres and Kelly Kelly. Three women talking all at the same time about husbands, weddings and children. They could have replaced them with any three women in their 30s and made the exact same show. Excrement. I was a day one subscriber, but if the network were any more than $9.99 a month, I would be cancelling. Apart from NXT, there is nothing worth watching.

Looks like this months drop might be old MSG cards. They just uploaded the 3/17/85 show.

Well that's nice, but I hope they actually load some cards that we didn't already see from Classics on Demand.
