The former Divas champion Kaitlyn has been future-endeavour-ed this morning.

Well, in 3 years she has trained with WWE, she used the system to change her looks to the fullest I think.

She was indeed a white girl, no hips, no ass, a little too much man mass, but she had an appeal about her. I won't miss her.

RAW has been excellent lately. I wonder how this WWE Network thing is going to work.

Also i was really hoping for an Evolution reunion with Flair and Batista both being back.

If you asked me which non NxT Diva I would like to get rid of, Kaitlyn would be one of the 2 women on the roster I would keep. This sucks

Can't say I blame her though. If you're not on Total Divas or dating a top star they simply don't give a rats ass about you

RIP chick busters

WWE just did the smartest possible thing. It's insane. For the price of 3 regular PPV's a year, you get them all, along with archived PPVs, Raws and Smackdowns, extra backstage stuff, and pre and after shows. I'm going to be able to go back to 2001, and watch all the Raws building up to Survivor Series where you had WWF vs. The Alliance. I think I'm right. Could be mistaken.

They've got tons. 30 odd years of the AWA, 40 years of Georgia Championship Wrestling, 40 years of Stampede Wrestling, 20 years of World Class Championship Wrestling, and 50 years of stuff owned by Jim Crockett Promotions (what became WCW once Ted Turned bought it in the late 80's).

Even though Jim Crockett Promotions was a part of the NWA since the 50's he still retained the video to all the territories he owned. Plus when Crockett Jr. was expanding in the 80's he did the same as McMahon when he as he was buying territories, he bought the UWF (Mid-South Wrestling) from Bill Watts after his national expansion failed, which included all the rights to what the UWF had been previously, NWA Tri-State from the 50's, then renamed to Mid South Wrestling in the 70's and then the UWF (Universal Wrestling Federation) when Watts sold to Crockett after the Oklahoma economy when into a recession. He had similar deals with territories that ran in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and Florida as well. Crockett ran the same "Invasion" angle with the UWF that McMahon later did with WCW and did exactly the same thing and completely buried the UWF guys.

Plus in 1985 Crockett bought the old Georgia Championship Wrestling Saturday afternoon timeslot, which McMahon got from The Briscoe Brothers when they sold him GCW in '84 (Which is why Jerry Briscoe became a 4 lifer in the WWE) and started running that (what eventually became WCW Saturday Night) and bought out Championship Wrestling from Georgia (owned by Ole Anderson), so he and JC Promotions became the NWA in effect since he owned the biggest territories, had the biggest stars, was the President of the NWA and had a national TV show. So after all that he owned a shitload of video footage, but they eventually had to sell to Ted Turner in '88, so when Turner purchased Jim Crockett Promotions, he purchased all the video librarys that Crockett had amassed along the way. Then they slowly morphed Jim Crockett Promotions into World Championship Wrestling and when McMahon purchased WCW, all that footage came along with it.

Now just because they own all the rights to that stuff, doesn't actually mean they have physical copies of it all however. I remember reading that a lot of stuff pre the 70's wasn't saved at all (save money by taping over stuff), and there was a fair bit of footage from JCP that wasn't usable either.

Basically something that is free like Raw and SD on television.....now you get everything by paying a monthly subscription.

Something that was free....and people are raving about it because now they have to pay. That Vince is clever and sly like a fox.

He knows people stream his PPV's for free, so now he's making people pay. Again, I don't see how people are so happy about this.

All Vince did was make everyone happy to pay him.
