Bulk Upload of NWA/WCW Content & Total Divas to WWE Network, What’s Coming Next Week?

November 25, 2015 by Mark D

Dusty Rhodes, NWA World Championship Wrestling

This week we’ve seen some rather cool additions to the Network. Not only do we finally have the fourth season of Total Divas, but we had a surprise update of World Championship Wrestling!

As always, check our WWE Network Updates page at any time to see what’s new.

 
World Championship Wrestling

Late last night the Network began uploading episodes of NWA: World Championship Wrestling – as of publishing more than 35 episodes have been added between the period of November 1985 and June 1987! Sadly, however, more than 25 episodes are currently missing when looking at it from the launch of series (under the Jim Crockett Promotion’s umbrella) between April 6, 1985 and where the WWE Network picks up at November 2, 1985.

It’s a real shame that the Network can’t add these new series in order and the gaps are a true annoyance for fans. I’m sure many of us won’t even begin to watch any World Championship Wrestling for fear that the missing episodes will be added in the coming days and weeks.

 
Total Divas

In addition to the WCW content, the WWE Network also bulk uploaded the entire thirteen episodes of Total Divas season four (as we exclusively reported would happen, earlier this month).

The latest season of the “reality” show continues to follow the exploits of the WWE Divas both inside and more importantly, outside the ring – well, duh!

  1. Lee says:

    Great work reporting network updates. Just letting you know that they have incorrectly labelled the February 8 1986 episode of NWA World Championship Wrestling as February 8 1985, so beware if you want to watch in sequence.

  2. Mark Markson says:

    I agree with the others here. WWE should really release TV episodes chronologically. I’m watching ECW Hardcore TV from 1994, and there are so many episodes missing.

    Does anyone know why WWE can’t upload Total Divas sooner? Like a month after they have aired on TV? Is it because E! fears it will hurt the ratings, if people just watch it on the network? That’s the only explanation I can think of.

  3. attitude.era.4life says:

    If the problem for WWE is, to somehow have to restore or “re-polish” certain episodes of the TV product from the past, then I rather have they wait a bit longer with uploading, and make it more coherent to watch.

    In the 80’s, 90’s and first part of 2000’s, the monthly/weekly shows were much more important and significant as storyline build-up for the ppv’s, than they are these days.

  4. Anan says:

    Not a complaint or rant here, but I don’t know why WWE just doesn’t add things in order rather than random additions of TV’s? Not having things in order ruins the consistency as ongoing stories/angles are “interrupted” till the next episode is added.

  5. Eric says:

    I would never say “finally have” and “Total Divas” in the same sentence.
