When Encore Airings Of Raw, Smackdown & WWE PPVs Will Be Available On WWE Network

For those that have asked when encore airings of Raw and Smackdown will be available on the WWE Network, the answer is 30 days after their original air date on USA and SyFy. The following is from the official Network FAQ:

Yes, 2012 and 2013 replays of Raw and SmackDown are available on WWE Network’s ever-growing video-on-demand library. Current episodes of RAW and SmackDown will be available on-demand 30 days after their original air date on USA and Syfy.

This isn’t the case for WWE pay-per-views as they’ll be made available immediately because it’s programming that premieres on the WWE Network. Below is the official response from the WWE document:

All programming that premieres on WWE Network, including WWE Pay-Per-View events, immediately becomes available in WWE Network’s extensive video-on-demand library.

Neither Royal Rumble 2014 nor Elimination Chamber 2014 are currently available in the video-on-demand library.

    Royal Rumble and elimination chamber will be available once we edit out all the boos from the Batista matches. So needless to say this might take awhile. If you would of cheered for Batista like you were suppose to we would not have this problem!

      You could have just piped in cheers. What’s good for Rybread is good for Bootista too, no?

      You could have booked Daniel Bryan to make him a slim chance to be in the Rumble but Bray Wyatt bounced Bryan’s head like a basketball. Next time put an IV in Bryan’s arm and send him away in an ambulance

    Are the ppv’s live or do you have to wait until they air to watch them

    • Bob’s Diner

      Live – and if you start late you can actually start the show from the beginning

        Thanks for answering

    How come hulu plus could get them up the next day?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because Hulu paid for the rights to do so. That’s probably what is helping bar WWE from doing it on the network.

        Ah I was wondering, thanks man

  • Harlie Boucher

    What about the Raw Preshows and after shows? Will they be available too?
