Report: Peacock Removing Controversial WWE Content From Old Shows

Roddy Piper vs. Bad News Brown and more is being removed

WWE Network officially migrated to Peacock in the United States on March 18 and Fastlane was broadcast on the streaming service over the weekend.

Shows from WWE Network's library have started to appear on Peacock in recent days, but they aren't as originally broadcast.

A report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider noted several readers have found that controversial content from old WWE shows has been removed. WrestleMania 6 was recently uploaded to the streaming service but Roddy Piper vs. Bad News Brown has been pulled from the show. Piper infamously painted himself half black for the match. 

A backstage segment involving Vince McMahon, Booker T and John Cena has also been removed from Survivor Series 2005. McMahon used the "n" word during a conversation with Cena and Booker T ended the segment by exclaiming, "Tell me he did not just say that?" 

PWInsider also noted Peacock will remove any content which goes against their community standards and practices, leaving the status of many WWE shows, particularly from the Attitude Era, up in the air. 

The removed content can still be viewed on WWE Network outside of the United States.
