Wrestling has been on a hot streak lately, and now it’s easier than ever to tune in. Over the weekend, a brand new WWE Centre appeared on local Aussie streaming service Binge, giving Australian fans an easier, cheaper route for on demand WWE.

Previously, fans could tune into the show on Foxtel, Kayo, or weeks later on the WWE Network. This is the first time WWE shows have hit a major streaming service. Details are currently scarce about when exactly shows like Raw, SmackDown and NXT will air on Binge. But episodes from last week are already available, and it’s likely newer episodes will drop weekly.

It’s a great move on Binge’s part, and adds to a steadily growing list of reasons to sign up for the platform. Between its HBO Max content, CW shows and AMC hits, Binge is snapping up some mighty fine properties this year.

Currently, there are only single episodes of recent WWE shows available on Binge, so you can’t quite binge yet (you’ll need the WWE Network for that) but expect this new partnership to grow with time. It appears Binge will be the new home of WWE shows going forward, and while you won’t be able to catch shows live, it’s a great option for playing catch up.

The inclusion of Afterburn and Bottom Line is also fantastic — these shows whittle down each week’s episodes of Raw and SmackDown into a tight 45 minutes so you don’t have to catch up on all five hours at once.

Interestingly, the cover image for NXT is a bit outdated — it features Bronson Reed (newly released) and Adam Cole (newly released, and now in AEW) — but that just goes to show how fast the world of wrestling changes.

If you’re not keen to sign up to an extra streaming platform like Kayo, or to pay for Foxtel’s more premium cable service, Binge is set to fill a very important gap in the market. For all your future WWE needs in Australia, you now know where to go.

Kotaku Australia has reached out to local representatives from Binge to confirm when each WWE show will air on the platform. This article will be updated should any further information become available.
