If you’re a fan of the professional wrestling shows put out by WWE, then the WWE Network is practically heaven for you. Where once you’d have to pay $30 or more for a single pay-per-view (PPV) event, you can now stream every PPV ever put out under the WWE umbrella (including older events put out by companies WWE has bought out such as WCW, ECW and a number of smaller US promotions).

It also has the latest PPV events and special network-only shows to boot. With thousands of hours of content, there’s more than enough wrestling to keep you happy for months at a single low price.

How much does WWE Network cost in Canada?

WWE Network is sold on a rolling subscription basis, with each month’s access charged at US$9.99/month. During your subscription period you can watch any new PPV or special event, as well as new shows and everything in the WWE network archive live and on demand from your choice of device.

What kind of content is available?

WWE has largely shifted its existing PPV business over to the WWE Network, including any pre- and post-show specials. This includes the “big four” PPVs (Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, Summerslam and Survivor Series) as well as the brand-specific PPV events such as Money in the Bank, Extreme Rules and Elimination Chamber.

Alongside its live broadcast PPV events, WWE produces two live shows exclusively for the WWE Network. NXT showcases the WWE’s developmental roster in a weekly show usually broadcast out of Full Sail University in Florida. NXT also has quarterly Takeover specials, usually broadcast the night before a PPV where major feuds and title matches are settled. WWE Network’s other live show is 205 Live, which focuses on in-ring action from cruiserweight (under 205lbs) wrestlers.

There are also a number of network exclusive shows covering everything genre-wise from comedy (Game Night, The Edge and Christian Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness) to reality TV (Drive Along, Total Divas). WWE’s other specialty is its documentaries that dive into the lives of current and former superstars. There’s Undertaker: The Last Ride, Edge: The Second Mountain and more via WWE Untold.

In an archival sense, WWE makes its entire library of past PPV events stretching all the way back to the first Wrestlemania available to watch. Selected archival TV broadcasts from some of these other brands are also available to watch on demand.
