Peacock TV: Entire WWE Network Archive Will Be Available Before SummerSlam; Reported Update On Partnership
Peacock TV has assured fans that they will receive all of the previous content WWE Network used to have before SummerSlam commences in August. It’s been rumored before that the plan was to have the entire archive of the WWE Network available to users around that time, but Peacock’s official customer service Twitter account confirmed it to fans on Monday.
“We will continually add WWE Network content to the library, making the entire WWE Network archive—including every WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV event in history—available to stream before SummerSlam!”

Before this announcement was made, Mike Johnson of PWInsider gave a report on the current status of the WWE Network after it huddled under the feathers of Peacock earlier this year. According to Johnson, a lot of the miscommunication and postponement of programs is occurring due to changes in strategy and rollout for original content on the streaming service, which includes the divisions being folded over into one another. All this has caused a bit of growing pains for the new deal and venture. A source of Johnson’s said that these changes, while they seem hectic on the outside, it’s going to be a long-term positive for the partnership overall. PWInsider also states that while there is no concrete answer as to when the Lex Luger Icons documentary will air, the company does aim to have a stronger lead-in for the program.
