• The Fiend Removed From WWE’s Pre-Watershed Programming
Pro-Wrestling Journalist Gary Cassidy revealed the following interesting information regarding WWE’s pre-watershed programming (programs that begin before 9:00 p.m.) in the UK:
“For the pre-watershed highlights of SmackDown on both BT Sport and Channel 5, The Fiend has been edited out of the Firefly Fun House segments.
Literally the only notable changes from the post-watershed to pre-watershed programming are:
– Shots with weapons (chairs, tables, etc) are removed
– Swearing is censored
– Scenes featuring The Fiend are removed”
