10 Times You SERIOUSLY Should Have Asked WWE For Refunds



The WWE Network costs £/$9.99. This gives you:

Almost spectacularly abysmal pay-per-views designed to bore fans into submission...under the apprehension of getting the company's top star over; at least three rematches per pay-per-view, most often engineered through depicting babyfaces, referees and or established narrative continuity as a joke; matches spanning several minutes wrestled by greenhorns pushed ahead of their more experienced and talented peers; inferior sequels to good TV matches, proving that the entire enterprise is a*se-backwards; Jinder Mahal as WWE Heavyweight Champion, an unspeakable creative atrocity executed because we've already been convinced to part with our money...

This is the dire creative cost of the platform's low-cost price tier. It's no great effort to pay for, no great effort to produce, fostering a relationship of utter mutual apathy. Still, it's only a tenner, and that tenner also grants you circum-1989 NWA and old, hysterical episodes of WCW Thunder, so there's that. Table For 3 is quite good too.

It's something we receive with a shrug.

But WWE simultaneously did not try and actively tried to p*ss us off years before it charged us through our bloodied noses...
