Report: Peacock “Reviewing 17,000 Hours Of WWE Content” To Filter Content

WWE On Peacock

The WWE Network has now moved to Peacock in the United States, with the first pay-per-view on the new platform being Fastlane this past weekend.

However, it seems there could be a lot of changes in store with what they’ll air and it is already starting to get noticed.

According to sources from The Hollywood Reporter, Peacock are going through the entire library and making edits to certain content.

The NBCUniversal-owned streaming service is reviewing all 17,000 hours of WWE content to ensure it aligns with Peacock’s standards and practices. WWE is also being made aware of any edits.

Two of the noticeable edits which have been made so far are to WrestleMania VI and Survivor Series 2005.

The WrestleMania moment removed is the promo by Roddy Piper where he has coloured one side of his face (although the match remains in tact) and there is a cut in Survivor Series where Vince McMahon uses a racial slur.

Peacock have not yet uploaded the entire WWE library to their service, and no doubt as they go further back in history there will be more changes to come.

How much of the Attitude Era they will stream we will have to wait and see, and hopefully their guidelines as to what they deem acceptable will be fully explained.
