I'm subscribed to both the WWE Network and CR making me basically the intended demographic for this promotion and even I think it feels weird. But both companies already have my money, so I guess they don't care terribly much what I think about this.

If it was April 1st, I'd think that this was some kind of April Fool's joke.... I have zero interest in wrestling and would rather see a deal on regular subscription prices for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. I do believe that the amount of anime fans who are also interested in wrestling is in the minority. Oh well, I know at least one voice actress for anime who might actually be interested in this, Caitlynn French.

i don't think i know anyone in real life who likes anime but doesn't like wrestling. they're pretty similar things, anyway.

unfortunately, i've been subscribed to both for years, so i can't take advantage of this ;_;

You realize Pro Wrestling is huge in Japan and that there are Pro Wrestling references made throughout many animes, right? This actually makes a lot of sense when ya look at it that way.

Regardless, this is still kinda weird.


it'd make more sense if they did NJPWorld where Tiger Mask W is wrestling (To be fair that isn't in English) or some indie streaming service that was more hardcore on storylines than WWE (Chikaratopia for example)

but that's just me.

This is cool and all, but what's the progress with the funimation and CR deal? 2 months and no update on new titles and lack of communication.

3 wrestlers(The New Day) cosplayed as saiyans at Wrestlemania.

A few celebrities/etc have also wore anime shirts at WWE/etc such as Rounda Rousey. Even if you don't watch wrestling these events blew up in communities all over the net, especially Saiyans at Wrestlemania. It was pretty hard to not hear about it. You either had your head under a rock or just forgot.

I think just off of the number of posts, that even if there is an overlap for a small group, it's not the best marketing stunt they've done....

Now what they should do is bring back the CR T-shirt + Pocky thing they did a long time ago.

I was almost interested until I realized WWE isn't how you spell NJPW. I know WWE probably wants access to the CR crowd since their subscriptions have gone down since their initial WrestleMania push and their TV ratings have been dipping even without any real competition from other stateside promotions (if you believe the smarky British men at Wrestle Talk News, which I do), but I would still prefer if CR could offer a side package for NJPW or NOAH. I also want CR to have the Kamen Rider catalog and expand their tokusatsu collection outside Ultraman. I am a foolish dreamer used to being disappointed by harsh realities.

That's quite an odd partnership there with anime and wrestling. I'm not exactly sure why those two would be interested with each other seeing that they have nothing in common other than the fact that they are video services. In any case, that just feels weird that this is being offered in such a way, and at least it's worth talking about. I have zero interest in wrestling, so that does nothing for me at all.

"Nothing in common," well, meet Brennan Williams, aka Great Black Otaku, former NFL player, now WWE wrestler Marcellus Black.

I think there is a significant overlap, but even if there isn't both companies are trying to get more people paying, more people paying means more money for content... so... we all win~ hopefully
