It's still a Death Valley Driver. He was using it for a couple weeks before they called it the FU but the angle about Cena using it was centred around it being his answer to the F5, hence the name FU.

I never would have thought of that move today as being a Death Valley Driver, since it lacks the "driver" part entirely. That's interesting about the original history though.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Yeah I remember it pretty clearly because I've always thought it was ridiculous.

Here's the first time he does it and the start of the angle - https://streamable.com/sirfk

It's at the end of the March 27, 03 ep.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

I watched the latest WWE 24 last night. It was the one about Raw after Mania. That series is my favorite show on the Network. I think I love the behind the scenes business more than the product itself.

+1 to this. The WWE 24s are the best thing on the Network. I hope they are making one about Balor's recovery.

They are. It's probably going to release as soon as he comes back. Like Monday...?

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

What can any of you recommend on the network that is non-visual? I'm sure those roundtables might work. I'm looking for something to put on podcast style during work

Certainly the round tables would work. Stone Cold podcasts would be another if you haven't seen any.

I think the Legends of Wrestling round tables are your best bet. Plus there is plenty of them to keep you busy for a while

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Does anybody use the network with 2 different consoles? I have an xbox360 in the living room and an Xbox one in the bedroom. The streaming on the 360 is terrible. Disconnections, buffering etc. I can't make it through an entire show without something going wrong. But on the Xbox one, it streams flawlessly. Never disconnects or buffers or anything. I'm curious if anybody else has had the same problem.

Yeah 360 app was garbage when I tried it a year or so ago and I wouldn't count on them updating it since the console is dead now.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

So the E threw three free months of the network at me, and I decided to follow along with TLF. It's been a long time since I watched SS 2002, but man, the ending to Michaels/H's gave me chills. Shawn popping up after the elbow and realizing "Holy **** my body can actually do a full match" is amazing. He can't hide that feeling from his face.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

WWE 24- Finn Balor is very good. I'm convinced that they could make a WWE 24 out of any topic and it'll be entertaining.

WWE 24 - Roman Reigns' trip to the bathroom

I'm sure Stroman will have one when he comes back from injury too. In fact, I wonder if they're faking injuries just to make these documentaries of guys coming back.

Watching Finn24 now. Not just him but any time these guys injure themselves semi-horrificly mid-match, and then finish, is un-****ing-believable.

Dear WWE Network Subscriber,

WWE Extreme Rules will be LIVE on WWE Network this Sunday.

We have noticed that you haven't accessed your WWE Network account in a few weeks. To be ready to watch Extreme Rules on Sunday, please make sure you are able to login to your account. Don't wait until the last minute!
First, it's not true that I haven't been on the Network in several weeks.

Second, it hardly seems smart to send out mass emails to the subscribers who aren't using the Network very actively, since it seems more likely than anything that it will just wake them up and cause them to go, "Oh yeah, I should really get around to canceling."

I wonder why they would do that. Do they gain anything by having viewers actually using the stream? Aren't all the ads WWE ads or am I misremembering?

Wish they'd given us more than 19 minutes of Cornette with Bischoff. Think Cornette said they filmed like an hour and a half.

I'm not particularly sensitive to this stuff in general but sting getting rolled up by Rollins after his neck injury makes me queasy when I think about it even today

Completely agree. I've found that I enjoy the out of the ring content much more than anything else on the network. WWE 24, Table for 3, and Legends of Wrestling are all great.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Apparently there's talks about doing a Table for 3 with Vince, Heyman, and Bischoff. I can't think of a Table for 3 I'd rather see than that. It has the potential to be amazing.

Russo, ???, Cornette

Vince has already made amends with Bischoff and Heyman is drawing a check from Vince, unlikely to challenge him. I'd love to see Heenan if he were still healthy.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

I would obviously love to see Bobby's quick wit if he was up to it, but it doesn't seem like he would be one to grind an axe with Vince. He was one of the only ones who would not join in on the WWF-bashing from the WCW side.

Really, nobody across from Vince is going to get any good televised shots in without approval since it's not live TV.
