WWE offers ‘unprecedented’ free Network access

It’s a version of their usual deal, but you don’t need to provide payment info. Unless you want to watch WrestleMania 36, that is.

WWE announced this afternoon that they’re offering “free access to WWE Network, including every past WrestleMania”.

It sounds great, but in practice seems like just a small variation of their usual “free for new subscribers” deal. You still need to give them an email address and create an account, so it’s not wide open. And WrestleMania 36 is not included, so you’ll need to provide payment info before you can watch the Show of Shows on Sat., April 4 & Sun., April 5.

But with a lot of digital content being offered at low or no cost while people are staying at home during the pandemic, this is good public relations.

Here’s the press release, which is also posted across the top of pages.

Beginning today, WWE is pleased to unlock a vast portion of the WWE Network library and extend free access to thousands of hours of extraordinary on-demand content, including every WrestleMania in history, countless pay-per-view spectaculars, original documentaries and more, for a limited time.

This unprecedented offering to WWE fans worldwide includes each epic installment to date of WrestleMania, plus, every Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and Survivor Series event; every NXT TakeOver and NXT UK TakeOver; and groundbreaking originals such as the entire WWE 24 docuseries, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions interview show, the recent five-episode hit, WWE Ruthless Aggression, and its 20-episode predecessor, The Monday Night War series.

Also included:

- Recent episodes of Monday Night Raw
- Recent episodes of Friday Night SmackDown
- Every episode of WWE Untold
- A Future WWE: The FCW Story
- Much, much more

We’ve already doubled down with an historic WrestleMania this year that’s Too Big for Just One Night, streaming on WWE Network next Saturday, April 4, and Sunday, April 5, at 7 ET/4 PT. (The two-night WrestleMania event is only available to WWE Network subscribers.) Now, in the lead-up to The Show of Shows, you can relive classic matches, re-experience sports-entertainment’s defining moments and celebrate WWE’s greatest Superstars, past and present. Just create your account and stream on your favorite device.

Start watching for free NOW at!

There’s no timeframe for this “limited time” offer.
