Peacock President Calls WWE Partnership "Incredibly Successful"

WWE have been on the streaming service for a year

While WWE previously broadcast pay-per-views through the WWE Network in the United States, the company agreed to a deal with NBCUniversal in early 2021 which saw Peacock become the exclusive home of the WWE Network in the country. 

The partnership has proved to be financially fruitful for WWE, bringing in $1 billion over five years and Peacock appear to be happy with the relationship too.

Speaking with Vulture, Peacock President Kelly Campbell noted the partnership has been "incredibly successful" so far, although she seemed to have forgotten WrestleMania was a two-day event. 

"WWE has been an incredibly successful partnership for Peacock since launch. We invested in an incredible fan base that provides us the opportunity to bring those fans back time and time again with the massive live events that are part of the WWE franchise. We have WrestleMania, in fact, returning on April 3. This is already one of our biggest live events of the year. And we have an original series that I'm super-excited about featuring John Cena coming later this year called WWE Evil that I think will bring a fun new take on the space for this audience," Campbell said. 

WrestleMania 38 will air on Peacock in the United States and on the WWE Network internationally on April 2 and April 3 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. 

Peacock was launched in July 2020. The streaming service lost $1.7 billion in 2021.
