Whether you only tune in for WrestleMania once a year or can’t get by without weekly doses of the squared circle, you’re still a wrestling fan. Being one myself, I know that gatekeeping just spoils the party for everyone, so let’s chuck that idea of how much wrestling you need to watch to be a “true fan” right out the damn window. That said, if you’d like a little more wrestling in your life, you might just enjoy a subscription to WWE Network.

WWE Network is the best way to get access to WWE Pay-Per-View events, weekly shows and more. If you’re not already a convert, the news is good: You can get a month of the service free right now, which means you can watch a whole lot of wrestling without paying a dime. WWE also announced a free version of the app on June 1, which offers access to select past PPV events, original shows, and more. But to watch live weekly shows like RAW and NXT, you’ll still need the paid version of the app.

Considering WWE Network lets you stream all 14 yearly pay-per-view events at no additional cost, that’s an incredible deal. Seriously, just think about how many times you’ve paid $60 to watch one PPV. For that same amount, you’ll get a whole year of WWE Network—and access to a massive library of past events. Between NXT, RAW, and Smackdown Live you’ll be able to watch all your faves hit the mat on a weekly basis, and you’ll also get access to documentaries, reality programming like My Son/Daughter Is a WWE Superstar, and originals like Wrestlemania Rewind.
