• WWE Issues Statement On Peacock Editing Out Controversial Content On The WWE Network

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.”

NBCUniversal and WWE issued the following statements regarding this:

NBCUniversal: “Like with other shows on the Peacock platform, (we are) reviewing WWE content to ensure it aligns with Peacock’s standards and practices.”

WWE: “Peacock and WWE are reviewing all past content to ensure it fits our 2021 standards.”

These changes (edited footage) will be made on all versions of the WWE Network on all platforms.

WWE signed a 5-year deal with Peacock, which is worth a total of $1 billion.
