Do WWE still have that weird deal with their TV partner in Canada where the Network is like a bolt-on to your cable subscription?

Yes.

The workaround is to create a WWE.com account with a US billing address and pay via PayPal in USD. It's super hit and miss which devices it'll work on though.

Tablets and computers tend to work fine as the WWE app is available on iOS/Android and you can view in your browser on a PC/Mac. But streaming devices are a huge hassle. I mostly use an Apple TV with a US iTunes account just so I can get the WWE app.

Canadian media streaming is an enormous clusterfuck, it's not just the WWE. Our version of Netflix sucks compared to the US one, and Netflix got super aggressive blocking people using VPNs to access the American content. We have three major cable companies colluding to keep prices high and divvy up the content between them. They all have their own awful streaming services comprised of the content that would be on US Netflix, and all require a cable subscription.

You don't even need a US billing address. They'll take a Canadian Paypal if you sign up on the website.

The WWE doesn't care, they're just fulfilling a contract so they do the bare minimum of geoblocking.


PS4 and Xbone work, though you may need to make a US account to initially download the app.

Yeah the Canadian PayPal works fine, but on WWE.com you have to put a US address in. Otherwise it just forwards you to that obnoxious cable provider only page.

It's not a huge deal to sign up anymore. It's mostly the lack of apps for popular streaming devices that sucks.

When did Superstars get added? I thought there were all types of legal issues with the name? Heck I even saw the name blurred on the Colossal Connection vs Demolition title change match.

I think the problem is with Superstars Of Wrestling, but regular Superstars is fine.

Good point. That said they only started this January even with Superstars.

I think it's a bit disingenuous to claim Bret didn't have a formula that he plugged opponents into like Michaels or Flair.

The right reading for this is the one I'm giving.

Yeah I don't know, Bret's masterful carry jobs (Summerslam '92) would today not pass muster as being too obvious. But in that time frame a lot of the WWF ring work stunk big rear end so he looked like a miracle worker, even though there were plenty of guys around who could do that for people.

I don't think many of Bret's miracle matches actually resulted in a main eventer.

Bret having a signature series of moves ain't a formula, brother. He didn't carry the Summer '92 version of Davey the same way he carried Magee or the same way he carried Nash, and the Nash/Diesel matches are pretty distinct from each other, the Papa Shango match is different from those, etc.
