Great Balls of Fire, WWE’s early-summer Pay-Per-View (PPV) event, begins tonight, and there are several ways to watch both the show and the pre-show, depending on what apps you’ve downloaded, which subscriptions you have, and how much you’re willing to pay.
Start Times and Schedule
As Cage Side Seats reports, the main event gets started at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time (7:00 Central, 6:00 Mountain, 5:00 Pacific, 2:00 Hawai’i Time). However, the event opens with an hour-long pre-show beginning at 7:00 p.m. Eastern, which will air on YouTube, WWE’s website (WWE.com), and WWE’s accounts on various social media platforms.
BUT, if you simply can’t get enough Great Balls of Fire and you’re desperate to see in-depth analysis, behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, and perhaps even watch scenes of a half-empty American Airlines Center in Dallas, you can watch the pre-pre-show, beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, on the WWE Network. Here’s the pre-pre-show schedule (all times are in Eastern):
3:00: This Week in WWE
3:30: Table for 3
4:00: Ride Along
4:30: First Look
5:00: WWE 24
6:00: This Week in WWE
6:30: Kurt Angle: Oh It’s True It’s True
7:00: Great Balls of Fire Kickoff Show
8:00: Great Balls of Fire
11:00: Raw Talk
11:30: Great Balls of Fire replay

How To Watch Great Balls Of Fire
As it turns out, you have several options. At least, you have several options IF and ONLY IF you subscribe to the WWE Network, which includes all pay-per-view events, such as Great Balls of Fire.
If you don’t have WWE Network, you can sign up for a free one-month trial by going to WWE.com and following the instructions there. You’ll have to enter a credit card number and, after a month, you’ll be billed $9.99 per month automatically, so be sure to cancel if all you want to do is watch tonight’s PPV event.
Once you sign up for the WWE Network and install the app on all of your favorite devices, you can watch on your TV via Roku, PlayStation, XBOX, Amazon Fire, and so on.
If you’re in Europe, you can watch via the Sky Sports Box Office for a one-time only charge of £14.95 / €21.95.
