Peacock editing out controversial WWE content from past events

The WWE Network in the United States moved to the Peacock streaming service last week with the plan of WWE’s streaming service shutting down next month. It will remain for those fans in international markets.

PWinsider.com first noted that fans have noticed Peacock making edits to older WWE content from various past events. A few instances of this were mentioned such as WrestleMania 6 featuring Roddy Piper vs. Bad News Brown that saw Piper paint himself half-black.

Also, during the Survivor Series event in 2005, there was a segment that featured Vince McMahon using the “n” word to Booker T in a conversational way. WWE was totally wrong for thinking this would be a comedy segment and got backlash for it.

Obviously, times have changed and since Peacock will be removing anything that goes against their community standards and practices, there will be other changes made to past content.

It should be noted that the same material did appear on the WWE Network versions of those shows.
