Sounds like the Network is not for you. Wouldn't the solution be to get off the fence, wait for the Mania card and, if you like it, just order the traditional pay-per-view or do the get together party? Any interest in the Network would seem to have more to do with the collective of its offerings, not just consideration for one event.

That's okay. Netflix Canada doesn't have much else. The other companies own all the Canadian broadcast rights to everything, so they get what little falls through the cracks.

They started adding indian movies with no dubs or subs.
Chinese movies with no dubs or subs.
And things like Ted Talks (free on youtube)

Also, there seems to be an unwritten rule with NetFlix Canada that they won't acknowledge the missing dubs and subs at all. They'll change the subject, then question your hardware setup talking about how the subtitle and audio selection features DO work, instead of the fact that 70% of what they add every month has no dubs or sub to work.

In Canada they can't get or keep any good content, and in the US they are being strangled by the Net Neutrality laws.

We have ted talks.
Chinese movies dubs/subs
Indian movies
and now Korean TV dramas...
... 5 of the 12 descriptions I read have to do with this one specific dynasty in Korean history that covers 700 years.

I lied, Mania and NXT would be the reasons why I would order it. IDK, we'll see...we'll see...just getting it for Mania would pay for itself, and I think the subscription, if I got it in March, would run me through Summerslam.

How many people knee jerk unsubscribe every month when they don't like whatever random thing about the booking?

Even if they wanted to unsubscribe, you're still on the hook for the rest of the remaining months.

If paid subscribers stop watching, that's still bad for WWE. They still need those eyeballs for what will likely be all the built-in, subtle advertising for WWE Films, WWEShop, DVD releases, etc. $60 is $60 for the individual subscriber. But WWE is obviously hoping for a lot more return on that.

There are smaller cable providers that actually allow you to purchase individual channels in lue of a package. One of the breakdowns I saw was 1.99 a month.
