WWE added some more "My Son/Daughter is a WWE Superstar" and "WWE Formerly Known As" episodes, think these were on YouTube or something before since they're all like a year or so old, but I guess they were just added to the Network.

New Table For 3 after Raw last night is kinda weird bc it's not wrestlers this time, but "Superstar Wives" with Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, and Matt Hardy's wives

They added the HBO Andre the Giant documentary from last year to the Network. If you guys haven't seen this yet, I highly recommend it bc it's crazy good.

"Holy Grail: The Search for WWE’s Most Infamous Lost Match" was added last night after Raw, pretty good doc on the Tom Magee/Bret Hart match that has became an urban legend at this point, even features an interview with Magee and they show most of the match, found only bc Bret had his secretary fuckin' convert his old VHS tapes to DVDs

Also coming later this week is WWE Chronicle: Ali Saturday Night and WWE 24 - Becky Lynch: The Man Sunday after MITB. Also Hidden Gems on Thursday but they never tell you what they are until they're uploaded.

The Ali Chronicle was really cool, talked a lot about him being a Muslim American, and he told a couple stories from when he was a cop that were pretty cool too

New Superstar Picks were added this morning with Zelina Vega. Way different matches here than some of the others so a nice variety.

Essa Rios vs Funaki from Heat in early 2000, most just showcasing Lita doing what Vega does now for Andrade
Jeff Hardy vs Undertaker in a Ladder match from '02 Raw AKA the MAKE YOURSELF FAMOUS KID match :mark:
Rock vs Hurricane from '03 Raw bc she loves an underdog story :lmao
Eddie vs Rey from SummerSlam '05 in a ladder match for Dominic's custody
Trish vs Lita, Trish's retirement match in '06
AJ vs Paige in Paige's main roster debut
Aleister Black vs Andrade from Takeover New Orleans, should have been Gargano/Andrade imo but she had to show her husband some love I guess
"Power Couple" where Steph wins the Women's Championship "with a little help" according to the description :lmao
