More on Peacock editing WWE Network content

Mar 26, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Peacock is continuing to review and remove controversial WWE Network content.

As noted earlier this week, it was revealed that Peacock had removed the WrestleMania 6 match between Bad News Brown and WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper, where Piper wrestled with half of his body painted black, and cut promos in blackface. A 2005 Survivor Series segment where Vince McMahon dropped the N-word to John Cena was also removed.

In an update, Peacock is reviewing all 17,000 hours of WWE content to ensure it aligns with Peacock’s standards and practices, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It was also noted that WWE is being made aware of any edits.

WWE and Peacock still expect to have the WWE library available for viewing on-demand in time for SummerSlam in late August, but all classic content will be reviewed before it is added.

Stay tuned for more.

    I guess that means we’re going into the ‘G’ Era now. What fun.

  4. Steve says:

    Why not just have a disclaimer? Why pay the 4.99 then ? Getting the networknis mostly for the library

    So now we’re getting our comments censored because of the “s” word? (If you’re having a hard time figuring out which one, it’s the one that John “encrypted” a few posts above.) Who are you guys trying to appeal to? I’d like a public explanation from the censor who decided to delete my and a few other posts, but I’m afraid you guys don’t have the “b” word (yup, afraid I’m gonna get censored again) to engage in a constructive and argument-based discussion.

    UK fan here. It looks like the Piper match from Mania 6 has been removed from the UK WWE Network too.

    So glad there’s You Tube. This is why I don’t bother with streaming services.
