    Hogan, so much for good matches then.

  2. LP1 says:

    An update on the January 23, 1984 MSG show on the Network. I just watched it and it’s definitely edited. It has a runtime of 1 hour, 57 minutes. The version that aired on WWE 24/7 years ago had a runtime of 2 hours, 32 minutes. The version that’s on the Network has 2 matches cut from the show. The Magnificent Muraco vs Tito Santana for the Intercontinental Title and a midget tag team match. Also, some of the post-match stuff is cut, like guys leaving the ring and heading back to the locker room and things like that.

    The only reason I can think of for them cutting it down to just under 2 hours is so they can fit it into a 2 hour window on their live feed. Which, if that’s the case, then fine, but at least include the full uncut show in the on demand part of the Network. Other than live PPVs I don’t think anyone really watches the live feed on the Network. Either way, it’s really a bad precedent to start if this is how they’re going to handle non-ppv shows that run more than 2 hours.

  3. Jordin McCabe says:

    Actually the Unreleased special is the second Hulk DVD to be added to the Network. They also have nWo: The Revolution.

    That said, while they are adding historic Hulk-related cards, I’d also love to see Showdown at Shea 1980 (Andre vs Hogan) & AWA Super Sunday (Hulk vs Nick Bockwinkel) added. And WTH, when is that Network adding episodes of WWWF’s Championship Wrestling & All Star Wrestling??

    • Daniel Bee says:

      To be fair I said “first Hogan DVD” added, which it is really. I call Rise & Fall of WCW “Hulk-themed” in this article but ones like that and nWo aren’t really Hogan DVDs specifically, just related to him.

      I’ll stop typing now… 🙂

  4. LP1 says:

    The MSG show from January 23, 1984 is listed as a 2 hour show on the Network. It was actually a 3 hour show when it aired live. Taking away commercial time it was about 2 hours and 25 minutes. I wonder what will get cut from the show when it airs on the Network.

    • LP1 says:

      Forgot to mention that when it aired on 24/7 years ago it had a 2 and 1/2 hour runtime. So there will definitely be some things(maybe even a match or two) cut on the Network. I don’t know why.

  5. David says:

    I like these theme release weeks with WWE Network, wish they had them more often.

    On a side note i hope WWE will reorganize the categories for 12 Days of Attitude, especially the RAW, SD and Heat shows and put them in their respective categories.

    • LP1 says:

      Agreed. They need to take all the full episodes of Raw, SmackDown and Heat out of the 12 Days Of Attitude section out them in their proper sections. Even finally create a Heat section. Just keep the short clips in the 12 Days Of Attitude section.

  6. Mr Hesse says:

    It would be nice if they added the “Hulk Still Rules” documentary from 2002.
