If you want to watch WWE on Kodi, you need addons that will give you access to reliable live streams of the USA Network and the WWE Network cable TV channels.

I recently tested out 3 of the best WWE wrestling addons to see which one had the best and most reliable WWE match videos and cable TV live feeds.  My favorite addon of the bunch was WWE on Demand.  AllWrestling came in a close second.  The popular video addon Phoenix has a WWE section, but none of the links worked when I tried them out.   Read on for more information and installation instructions.

WWE events and schedules

The USA Network broadcasts WWE RAW every Monday night, followed by WWE Smackdown on Tuesday.  You can watch WWE NXT on Wednesday nights too, if you have access to the WWE Network.

Wrestlemania– the WWE’s big yearly championship event– is only available via PPV and the WWE Network.

The Best WWE addons for Kodi

Here are a 3 addons that will allow you to watch Wrestlemania without paying anyone a single dime.  Archives of past matches and links to weekly RAW, Smackdown and NXT matches can be found on these addons as well.

The #1 best all-around WWE addon: WWE on Demand

The brand new addon known as WWE on Demand is awesome.  It has not only tons of working links to the WWE Network, but also virtually every major WWE event ever broadcast.  All the links to old matches that I checked out on the menu below were live when I checked them out.

Kudos for style and design

It’s obvious that WWE on Demand’s developer is a true WWE fan.  The addon’s well-organized menus are decorated with WWE backgrounds and match posters are integrated into its design.

Tons of working links to live feeds

The menu page below has a ton of WWE Network / USA Network live streams.  Any time you want to watch any type of live WWE game, just click around here until you find a link that works.

Regular updates

Another thing I really like about WWE On Demand is the fact that it’s always very up-to-date.  The “What’s New” section shows all the latest additions to the content and also provides a way to contact the developer directly, via @PBear90 on Twitter.

AllWrestling

AllWrestling isn’t as nice looking as WWE on Demand and it doesn’t have working live feeds, but it does have a ton of content.  AllWrestling’s plain but well-organized main menu has seven sections: WWE, TNA, ROH, Lucha Underground, NJPW, UFC and Search.

More than just WWE

AllWrestling gets major points for having content from other professional wrestling leagues and UFC.  Its WWE content folder is depicted below– and as you can see, it’s almost as deep as WWE on Demand’s.  Here you can find links to all the major WWE shows: Raw, Smackdown, Superstars, Total Divas and NXT.

Great content, but no live feeds

There are 3 WWE Network links in the WWE Network folder, but none of them worked when I tried them out.

If you want to watch a live WWE match, get WWE on Demand.  But if you want to check out recorded matches or wrestling content from little known leagues like Lucha Underground, AllWrestling will make a nice addition to your Kodi addon collection.

Phoenix

Phoenix has a notoriously awkward menu system, but you can sometimes find live feeds of upcoming sports matches here when other WWE addons let you down.

Phoenix’s live sports page

The Phoenix menu depicted below often contains working links to PPV UFC and WWE matches and NFL games.  Today is a Thursday, so there isn’t any WWE content posted at the moment.  But WWE links sometimes do appear here on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and in advance of big matches like Wrestlemania.

To get to this page from the Phoenix main menu, navigate to phoenix sports → cosmix sports → main sports events.

 

Its WWE video archive is in need of repair

Phoenix Sports also has a WWE sports replays section.  However, when I checked it out all of the links I found there generated errors.

Because Phoenix is one of the most popular addons for Kodi, it’s not a bad idea to download it if you don’t already have it.  There’s a chance that future Phoenix updates will correct some of the errors I ran into while I was looking for WWE content.
