If you’ve been following our WWE Network Updates page this month (well, of course you have) you will have noticed what is a huge influx of classic SmackDown episodes from the Attitude Era — just this week alone there have been close to 80 new additions!
WWE will soon begin airing this promo to hype all of the new shows, if they haven’t already:
So, why all the sudden uploads? WWE are in the process of adding more than 150 hours of episodes to their streaming service, with the aim being to fill up the years 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 to have a complete archive of Attitude Era SmackDown at subscribers’ fingertips.
On the subject of SmackDown, a WWENetworkNews.com report reveals that a new SD-themed Collection, the official synopsis for which is below, is scheduled to hit the Network on Monday.
Joining that will be new Collections on The Rock and WarGames.
This month, WWE Network lays the SmackDown with the addition of over 150 classic hours of WWE’s most electrifying show.
This collection features 10 memorable episodes from this month’s SmackDown offering including the rise of The McMahon-Helmsley Era, the threat of an Invasion, classic moments from The Rock, and more!

Hell, I’d pay WWE $20 a month for the Network if they’d get off their lazy asses and upload more old content: Primetime, Mania, Wrestling Challenge, Superstars, Heat, and Velocity!
@Joe Young, I’m still hoping WWE Confidential is added sometime!
This great and all but when will they upload more Primetimes!! I get the hogan thing but I want to see more classic Bobby and Gorilla!!
They still haven’t added Episode 24 and it’s starting to piss me off. Benoit was in the main event, we get it. But the Smackdown! from December ’03 when he faced Brock in the main event is there. Episode 24 is the only episode missing between August 1999 & March 2004. Just freakin add it. No one is going to complain
I don’t know why that episode is missing, but I don’t think it has anything to do with Benoit. Every other SmackDown from those years with Benoit is on the Network.
Well it is available right now! Go check for yourself
I wonder all the sudden upload of Smackdown is any indication that they could forward with a brand extension once again when Vince make the announcement of who is running RAW only for someone else to say, well then, I’m going to run Smackdown?!
I was wondering the same thing. I hope to god they don’t bring back the brand split. They didn’t do it right the first time, I have no faith they’ll do it right this time. Also, Raw is 3 hours and that show drags almost every week. Especially the 3rd hour. 3 hours is way too long for a weekly show. Now imagine that same 3 hour show with only half the roster they have now. It’ll make you wanna hang yourself.
First time since the awesome ECW-dvd sets between 2004-2007 were produced that an original production from WWE is TV-MA…and then it is had to be a poorly animated copy of Southpark.
I really hope they at least will make the OMG. vol. 3 a TV-MA release, when the top 50 of the most extreme moments will be counted down. The current product is of course not to be changed, I’m not that naive that I would believe, that WWE suddenly found out, that they overall sucked for the last 6-7 years.
Yes! I was hoping for it to be TV-MA and it is, freaking epic!
