Protect Yourself While Using Kodi – Use a VPN
ISPs don’t like you to stream content. When they see you do it, they might send you copyright infringement notices, throttle down your speed or even interrupt your service. A VPN will keep your ISP from seeing what you’re doing, avoiding these annoyances. Furthermore, using a VPN will give you access to geo-blocked content by spoofing your location.
There are many VPN suppliers to choose from. Important factors to consider when choosing one are:
- fast connection speed to avoid buffering,
- no-logging policies to protect your privacy,
- no usage restrictions to access any content at full speed and
- software that is available for all your devices.
The Best VPN for Kodi: IPVanish
For Kodi users, we recommend IPVanish. It offers a complete security solution that meets all our criteria. With a widespread network, no speed cap, no throttling, unlimited bandwidth, unrestricted traffic, no logging and client software available for most platforms, IPVanish has all the required features.
IPVanish offers a 7-day money back guarantee which means you have a week to test it risk-free. Please note that Addictive Tips readers can save a massive 60% here on the annual plan, taking the monthly price down to only $4.87 per month.
Installing the All Wrestling Kodi Add-on
Like with most add-ons, installing All Wrestling is a multi-step process. You first need to configure the repository installation source. You then install SuperRepo, a repository that hosts the All Wrestling add-on. Finally, you install the actual add-on. It may seem like a lot of work, but we’ll make it an easy task by guiding you through all the required steps.
Before you begin, you must make sure that you’ve enabled Unknown Sources in Kodi. If you’ve installed other add-ons before, they probably are. If not, from the Kodi home screen, go to Settings (the little gear icon at the top left), choose Add-ons on the left pane and make sure that the switch next to Unknown Sources is On. It should be white instead of gray.
Adding the Source
From the Kodi home screen, click the Settings icon and then File Manager. From the file manager screen, double-click Add-Source in the left pane.
Click None and enter this text “http://srp.nu/” (without the quotes) in the box at the top of the screen and click OK.
You need to name this new source. We’ll call it SuperR. Enter the name in the appropriate box and click OK.
A repository is a place from which you install add-ons on Kodi. It is like the Apple or Android respective app stores, with the difference that you can install multiple repositories in Kodi. SuperRepo is the repository we’ll install as it hosts the All Wrestling add-on.
From the Kodi home screen, click Add-ons in the left pane and then click the Package Browser icon (the little open box) at the top left.
Select Install from ZIP file then, on the next screen, select the source we just added (SuperR).
Navigate to the SuperRepo zip file by clicking krypton then repositories then superrepo until you see the superrepo.kodi.krypton.repositories-X.X.XX.zip file and click it to install the repository.
After a few seconds, a message at the top right of the screen will confirm the successful installation of SuperRepo.
Installing the SuperRepo Video Section
The SuperRepo repository is comprised of several sections that can be individually installed. The All Wrestling add-on is unsurprisingly located in the SuperRepo Video Add-ons section. We need to install it.
Go back to the add-on browser and select Install from repository. Find the SuperRepo Repositories [Krypton][vX] in the list and click it.
Click Add-on repository then find the SuperRepo Category Video [Krypton][vX] entry and click it. Then, click the Install button at the bottom right of the next screen.
After a few seconds, a message at the top right of the screen will, again, confirm the installation of the Video Add-ons section of SuperRepo.
Installing the All Wrestling Add-on
We’re now ready to install the actual All Wrestling add-on.
Back again to the add-on browser click Install from repository once more. Find and click SuperRepo Category Video [Krypton][vX] from the list of available repositories.
Click Video add-ons and find and click All Wrestling in the alphabetized list. Click the Install button at the bottom right screen that opens.
Wait several seconds while the add-on and its dependencies are installed until you see a confirmation message at the top right of the screen.
Voilà! Now that we’ve successfully installed the All Wrestling add-on, let’s start it by clicking its icon from the video add-ons screen.

A Tour of the All Wrestling Add-on
The All Wrestling add-on lets you view wrestling events from several wrestling promotions. You’ll find content from WWE, TNA, ROH, Lucha Underground, NJPW, and UFC.
Multiple Available Promotions
Lets first see what each of the available wrestling promotion is, exactly.
- WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) is certainly the oldest wrestling promotion, with its roots dating back to the 1950’s as the Capitol Wrestling Corporation. It was renamed to World Wide Wrestling Federation in the 60’s and then to the immensely popular WWF of the 80’s before becoming WWE in the early 2000’s.
- TNA (Total Nonstop Action wrestling), now known as GFW, after changing name twice this year but still often referred to as TNA, is often said to be the world’s second biggest wrestling promotion, after WWE. It started back in 2001 after the WCW ended, leaving WWE (then WWF) as the only wrestling promoter in the US. Its founders made TNA essentially a pay-per-view operation, mainly to differentiate it from the WWF which relied mainly on standard TV broadcasts and exploited a different market.
- ROH or Ring of Honor wrestling is yet another major US wrestling promotion. It’s also considered by some to be the second biggest operation, over TNA and second only to the WWE.
- Both a wrestling promotion and a TV series, Lucha Underground features wrestlers from the American independent circuit and Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA), one of the biggest wrestling promotions in Mexico.
- NJPE (New Japan Pro Wrestling) is Japan’s biggest wrestling promotion. It’s also one of the world’s oldest wrestling promotion, dating back to 1972. Like a few others, this one also claims to be the second largest promotion. It mostly features Japanese wrestlers and is a good option if you want to add a bit of oriental exoticism to your wrestling experience.
- UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) is not a wrestling promotion but rather a mixed martial arts (MMA) organization. MMA is close enough to wrestling to warrant its inclusion in this add-on. What wrestling fans love is a good fight and MMA has lots of them. UFC is the largest MMA promotion in the world, producing events worldwide.
The submenus for each promotion are quite different from one another as the available content varies from promotion to promotion. For instance, here’s what the WWE submenu looks like.
It is quite well laid out, making it relatively easy to locate any content. Similarly, the TNA menu also features subsections.
At the opposing end of the spectrum, the UFC section has everything together in one long, multi-page list. Fortunately, the list is sorted chronologically with the most recent events at the top.
Once you’ve found some content that interests you, clicking it will bring up the source selection screen.
The number of sources will vary for each title but there is usually between 3 and 8 of them. And the more sources there are, the better the odds of finding a working source. There are unfortunately more dead sources than working ones and the further back in time you go, the more there are.
Fast Search engine
To make finding specific content easy, the All Wrestling add-on is equipped with a well-working search feature. It will find content within all the subsections at an amazing speed, compared to a lot of other add-ons.
What’s good about the All Wrestling Add-on
The All Wrestling add-on has several things going for it. What I liked to most is its speed; the menus, submenus and content lists seem to load faster than with a lot of Kodi video add-ons. The content is also generally well-organized. These two features combine to make browsing the add-on a pleasant experience.
I also appreciate that the add-on has links to pay-per-view content, unlike some competing Kodi wrestling add-on. All Wrestling contains links to UFC, TNA and WWE pay-per-view matches.
The NJPW section is also something I loved about this add-on. If you’ve never seen Japanese professional wrestling match before, it’s well worth checking out.
But one of the best things about the All Wrestling add-on is that it seems to cut out the advertisements that often clutter up many sites that host wrestling content.
On the down side
Navigating this add-on will quickly reveal one of its major shortcomings: it has a lot of dead links. I fact, there are whole subsections that return error messages. But as frustrating as it is, it is to be expected. This add-on is essentially a collection of links to various Internet sites that host wrestling matches. And as we all know, video sources on the Internet come and go almost on an hourly basis. It is therefore almost impossible for such an add-on to keep up, hence the numerous dead links. Arm yourself with patience and, by trying multiple sources, you might eventually find what you want. And keep in mind that given the often-limited longevity of internet video sources, recent streams that are working are usually easier to find than older ones.
We also couldn’t find any contact info for developer RayW1986, making it impossible to send content addition suggestions or requests in case there’s a specific fight you can’t find and would like to see added. The same goes for submitting bug reports. This last point might be moot, though, as we didn’t find many issues in this add-on. That is, other than the numerous dead links, of course.
Another drawback of All Wrestling is that you’ll only find recorded events and no live IPTV streams. If you want to watch live wrestling, you’ll need to use a different add-on.
Other Interesting Options for Wrestling Fans
If you’re a wrestling fan, there are a few other add-ons we can suggest. In this recently published article “How to Watch TNA Wrestling on Kodi: Working Streams for 2017”, we describe four add-ons that contain both live and recorded wrestling streams. Although the article is specifically about TNA, the add-ons it mentions feature wrestling from other promotions as well.
Another of our recent articles “Best Kodi Add-ons for UFC – How to Live Stream UFC on Kodi” presents three additional add-ons where you’ll find wrestling content.
Wrestling is a popular sport and the All Wrestling add-on has the potential to fulfill every wrestling fan’s cravings. Although it has a few quirks, it works well and contains enough content to keep you busy for a while. Furthermore, the content is well-organized, the interface is quick and the search feature works great. What’s not to like?
With Kodi, it’s never been easier for wrestling fans to get their fix. The All Wrestling add-on mostly lives up to its name, offering users comprehensive access to content from the world’s most popular wrestling promotions.
