When the WWE Network was first announced, few saw it as anything more than a massive online archive of wrestling content and a streaming source for WWE Pay Per Views. Admittedly, that’s pretty impressive on its own, but WWE also promised to treat the live streaming portion of the Network just like a real TV channel, and that meant original programming. Many people were unconvinced, and WWE’s first attempts generally ranged from standard list-based shows using clips of old content and interviews, to Legends House, a lame but sometimes bizarrely entertaining attempt at a reality show. However, a few years after the Network was established, WWE has really ramped up their original content, to the point that there are actually a bunch of shows that are entirely worth your time, with more coming on a regular basis. So, if you want to know where to get started, we’ve got a few ideas.
10. WWE Slam City
Sure, it’s less a show than a series of short vignettes designed to sell children’s toys, but let’s face it, that’s pretty much what 90% of Saturday morning TV was about when we were kids. What’s important is that the episodes, which are about WWE Superstars trying to find regular jobs after they all get fired from professional wrestling, are actually really funny, and completely work as five minute long comedy bits. Probably the oddest part is watching animated versions of WWE Superstars, complete with official WWE theme music, that are not voiced by the actual wrestlers. Apparently they have time to provide voices for Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, and a sequel to Surf’s Up, but not an actual official WWE product, which is strangely hilarious to us. In any event, the episodes are all incredibly short, so they won’t take a lot of time to enjoy, and they really do pack a lot of humor in there. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like new episodes are coming anytime soon, but what’s there is still pretty good.http://www.cagesideseats.com/2014/3/17/5518280/video-playlist-wwe-slam-city-cartoon-debuts Source: cagesideseats.com
