Free tier of WWE Network launches today

You can now get a taste of the WWE Network for $9.99 less than you can now.

WWE has announced a cost-free tier of their WWE Network, appropriately dubbed the “Free Version of WWE Network”, that will be launching today. The story was first broken by The Hollywood Reporter and later confirmed by WWE via retweet.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

This free version will be ad free, at least for the time being. WWE Executive VP of Advanced Media Jayar Donlan told THR their goal with this version of the Network is “a balance of providing a great experience for our fans by essentially offering unlimited access to a larger array of programming while still maintaining the value of our more premium content at $9.99 per month.”

As far as what content will be available in the free tier, the report mentions “recent” episodes of RawSmackDown and NXT, as well as original series such as Table For 3 and “some” historical pay-per-view events.

Interestingly, the report also mentions Raw Talk, which appears to be making a comeback, likely alongside Talkin’ Smack, two fan-favorite post-shows that were discontinued years ago.

WWE Network launched in 2014 and since then has revolutionized the way wrestling fans consume content, growing to over 2.1 million subscribers. It is now home to every WWE pay-per-view event, including WrestleMania.
