WWE fans and subscribers to the WWE Network awoke this morning to the stunning news that the streaming service is being folded into Peacock come March.
Some fans are rejoicing, some are furious and some are very confused about what will happen to their subscriptions.
Here is a sampling of those thoughts:
The @WWENetwork is gonna be NO MORE come mid-March since it’s going to @peacockTV. Really, @VinceMcMahon? Doing your usual money grab as always. https://t.co/dnfgKsJE3a

Love the WWE Network but not too too excited to have to scroll through random content to get to PPVs. Really sad to see it go

It was just a matter of time. It only makes sense smart move by both.

@WWENetwork so if the network is shutting down and moving to peacock what am I supposed to do with the 2 wwe network gift cards I got for Christmas?

NBC going all in Peacock is going to be interesting over the coming months, especially given NBCSN being shuttered, and now getting the WWE Network exclusive in the States.

Okay, well this probably pushes me over the edge on Peacock. More often than not I'm paying for WWE Network anyway, so getting that plus Premier League plus the NBC library for half the price is a good deal. https://t.co/DFveueGioW

Peacock isn't available in Canada, the original programming is broken up along Corus' channels (Showcase, W, etc.).
I also doubt Rogers is going to give up distribution rights in Canada for the WWE Network. I expect that everything here will stay the same.

If we lose new archived footage when WWE Network moves to Peacock then I suppose I’ll have to turn into a normal adult and go to bed at 9pm on weekends.

Now we will have to put up with Peacock's TERRIBLE interface. I mean, how do you screw that up at this point with the other services out there. WWE Network's interface is really good. At least now I get it for free…

WWE Network is just gonna be Peacock for WM huh? I don't like that at all.

Wait so WWE network is shutting down and we gotta subscribe to Peacock. But Peacock isn’t available internationally what the hell that’s super unfair.

Wow this is huge. The WWE Network was supposed to be the future of the company.
— Mark David (@FReichComeback) January 25, 2021
Anyone know if the network will still remain the same in canada
Business is business I get it but damn wwe you could’ve at-least let us know or not taking my money. Or offered a transfer over to peacock. Like you could’ve sold our subscriptions to them so we wouldn’t have to go through all this BS. It’s cool it’s been said and known for years that the WWE doesn’t listen to its fans. Guess I’ll just go watch AEW
Only thing that annoys me about WWE content moving to peacock is the damn commercials. Peacock needs to get a subscription choice that allows you to watch without commercials like most of the other popular streaming services.
