Is it too soon to call the network launch a disaster? Day 1 I was able to get through a whole PPV on demand. Yesterday, only about 5 min. before it endlessly buffered. This happened over and over again. Not too mention the fact that the Xbox app still isn't allowing anyone to log in. This is a mess.

I haven't tried to watch on my xbox, but I've been able to stream online just fine.

I expected problems for the first week or so. Not saying that it should happen, but I expected it. Their live stream has been working great for me. VOD stuff has been hit or miss on all my devices(laptop, tablet, ps4 etc)... I'm willing to give them some time to fix things, but can understand the frustration.

Streaming problems I get, but to be unable to even access it on an advertised device? That's just bad business.

I'm assuming it'll be all up and running within a week or so. The live stream has been great. Hopefully they're ready for spike in users for Mania.

All the more reason to add Daniel Bryan into that match. Or CM Punk.

Ironically, I did do that and had absolutely no issue.

And I don't want to jinx it, but I'm currently watching King of the Ring 93, 15 mins in and no buffering. (AppleTV)

VOD was working great for me last night on both my smartphone and laptop... no buffering, was able to skip around etc. Hopefully it stays that way.

I watch them on and off. I'll see something highlighted on youtube, watch 3-4 clips and get sidetracked by another clip on the side.

What got me started with Botchamania was the Steinermania clips that they put together.

Same here. My frustration level has gone way down. Looking forward to NXT Arrival tonight.

Decent article on the upcoming Mania

http://grantland.com/features/wwe-wrest ... -triple-h/

Not to pull a swerve double-turn finish on you here, but what if we — the “smart” fans — are the heels? We’re the ones flaunting our ironic intelligence and hogging the spotlight. We’re the ones booing John Cena when he’s supposed to get cheers. We’re the ones illegally streaming pay-per-views instead of buying them. We’re the ones raising our noses at the company that’s brought us so much joy.

Anyone watching Arrival tonight? I'll probably watch the Pens live then go back and watch Arrival later tonight (if it's on demand). [EDIT just saw it replays at 11pm. Awesome] I will flip it on at some point just to test the stream. It's a good practice for mania, but won't even be close to the number of streams.

NXT has been streaming for me no problem with the live show. That Cesaro/Zayn match holy **** ... Zayn needs to be on the main roster like now. Awesome match.

Emma and Paige have a sloppy but good match. Better than any diva match you will see on the main roster.

That will change if they ever hit the big time, ironically.

I've been listening to Stone Cold's podcasts, and it's been really good.

Listened to Kurt Angle's episode. It's been fascinating hearing about his training, and dealing with his injuries all these years. The dude made it to the Olympics on a broken neck!
