The WWE Network was a risk the company took and so far, it seems like a success. New content is being added every week and the shows are starting to improve. With so many options, make sure you get a chance to watch these particular shows.
Every few months, NXT will host their version of a pay per view called Takeover. They typically air the day before a main roster pay per view and almost every time NXT leaves the victor. The card basically has five matches and nothing is below above average. Sometimes, the show produces match of the year.

Two or three people from the wrestling world discuss some of the current topics, with a ticker in the corner about what’s coming up next. They even mention dirt sheet news like Enzo’s backstage heat.

Watching as superstars exit an arena and head to the hotel in the middle of the night shows the extreme measures taken in the business, while still keeping the content light. If WWE matches up the right superstars, it creates an episode that flows. [Image: Photo via WWE.com] Swerved is Punk’d with WWE superstars. We’ve heard of the legendary road stories and while many of those can’t air on TV, the WWE has found a way to keep the humor going with ratings still suitable for teens. Watching WWE wrestlers play pranks on their fellow superstars is amusing and there isn’t a bad episode in the batch.

Roman Reigns’ road to WrestleMania, Seth Rollins rehabbing his knee and seeing what happens before the biggest events of the year are all featured. WWE doesn’t upload a ton of these videos, making what’s produced that much more valuable. [Image: Photo via WWE.com]
