Hold on a second… was it quietly announced during RAW last night that an additional 50 hours of ECW footage will be added to the WWE Network very soon?
During the opening match on the July 13th edition of Monday Night RAW, the on-screen slider which detailed new and upcoming WWE Network content featured a slide stating that new ECW content (including Hardcore TV) is coming. You can see the slider for yourself below.
More than 50 hours of Extreme Championship Wrestling footage was added to the Network back in November along with three complete ECW Arena shows and the “ECW Exposed” special with Joey Styles and Paul Heyman. The last update meant that ECW Hardcore TV was up to March 1996. So, an additional 50 hours would mean that we would have the entire run of ECW television programming until roughly the time of ECW’s first PPV – Barley Legal in April 1997.
Recently, Joey Styles posted some cryptic tweets about new ‘classic’ content planned for the Network – was this what he was referencing or do we have MORE classic content coming our way too…?

Sounds good, although I’ve only had WWE Network for about 1½ months, so I haven’t watched much of the existing ECW content on there. 🙂
This is excellent news. I watched RAW live and completely missed this, so great eye on that one, Mark.
With additions being slow as of late, this would be a big step in the right direction.
Thanks has to go to Pete Haase who alerted me to it.
That’s great news, hopefully that will include all their super cards. I’d like to see them change the term PPV on the network to just Event Relays so that that section can include other “event” type shows such as the Tokyo event, but also the ECW supercards. Either that, or just add the supercards to the PPV section under ECW or a vault section titled ECW Super Cards.
