WWE App Finally Lays The Smackdown On PS3, PS4
Listen up, jabronies, because I’m only going to say this once: The most electric entertainment in modern sports is ready to be broadcast to your TV 24/7 courtesy of the WWE Nework app, arriving today on your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
In case you couldn’t tell from my antiquated wrestling references pulled from The Rock (unless he’s returned to the spot yet again and is using the same catchphrases, that is), I haven’t exactly been a fan of wrestling for quite some time. Nothing wrong with the sport, mind you, I just moved on to other things.
Growing up, though, my big brother was a huge wrestling fanatic and so, of course, I got into it as well. We had the action figures, the tiny wrestling ring (which my brother broke trying to stand in it with one of his toys once), the Wrestling Buddies and more. And every time a match was on, you better believe we were planted right in front of the TV, ready to watch The Ultimate Warrior, Jake the Snake Roberts, The Legion of Doom and all sorts of dudes you whippersnappers probably have never heard of.
In other words, wrestling has been around for quite some time and, today, it’s as big as it’s ever been, bringing in worldwide fans by the millions, selling out arenas on a weekly basis and even producing a video game or two on an annual basis.
But what we’re here to talk about today is watching the professional grapplers go toe to toe, which is being made easier than ever thanks to the WWE Network. Announced yesterday afternoon, this app is all about streaming the WWE’s most popular content to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, including everything live pay-per-view events and loads more.
According to eVP Digital Media, WWE’s Perkins Miller, a subscription of $9.99 per month will grant you access to all of the app’s content with a six month commitment. And along with those pay-per-view events we were just talking
“WWE Network will also include groundbreaking original programming, reality shows, documentaries, classic matches and more than 1,000 hours of video on demand at launch,” said Miller. “This is the perfect time to get the app and sign up, especially with WrestleMania 30 right around the corner.”
According to the announcement, the app is live as of now, so all you have to do is boot up your console, head on over to the Apps section and get to downloading. After that, bid farewell to your friends and loved ones, because you’ll have quite a few elbow drops, pile drivers and flying clotheslines to get through. Ooooooh yeeeeeeeah!
