• More WWE Content Being Edited Out On Peacock
The WWE Network is now available to users in USA on the Peacock streaming service.
With this move, Peacock officials have decided to remove some “controversial” things from WWE’s past and not make them available on their platform.
They have removed the WrestleMania 6 match between “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and Bad News Brown, due to Piper painting half of his body in black.
They have also removed a backstage segment from Survivor Series 2005, where Vince McMahon said the N-word to John Cena.
You can watch it below:
The Wrestling Observer noted that Peacock will continue editing WWE content that’s considered offensive in 2021:
“Peacock is pushing itself as a family friendly service and anything that doesn’t meet standards will be edited out.
There are a number of RAWs from past years not uploaded. A lot of the other television shows, notably Saturday Night Live, has tons of edits from the original show based on things that were considered funny at the time but would be considered poor taste at this time.”
