EDIT: Being able to favorite matches would be fantastic. Great app. Definitely worth using paid as the access to older matches is the greatest feature of the app. The personalization as far as following your favorites is appreciated, however what would improve things and really make it perfect would be the ability to create your own playlists or to at least autoplay certain match days. The thing I find most frustrating is having to navigate around just to watch 2 matches with the same wrestler.

I like the app but I have a problem with the videos of bouts not playing. They'll be playing fine for a while and then all of a sudden none of them will play. I've restarted my phone, made sure the app was updated, uninstalled and reinstalled the app. I might be able to play videos for a while again if im lucky, but the same problem arises. I'm paying for the subscription too. It's not worth paying if the videos don't play tho. Hopefully its a bug that can be fixed because I really love this app

App no longer functions. It opens to the logo screen, and that's all it does. So I've pretty much had enough of this app, and I'm uninstalling it, because you devs just can't seem to maintain it properly. I guess even Japan has incompetent people.
