In order to promote WWE Network moving to Peacock in the United States, WWE President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan talked with the Associated Press. He revealed they had plans for WWE Network to move to Peacock even before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nick Khan revealed that the deal was a no-brainer as Peacock got a huge 33 million sign-ups in the last quarter of 2020. The price will also be cut to half. Currently, the subscription of WWE Network is $9.99 whereas Peacock will be $4.99 per month. The reach of Peacock is great and along with that they will also provide technical support.
The Associated Press also interviewed Stephanie McMahon and asked her about the venues of WrestleMania. From next year, WrestleMania will go back to being a one-night event like before.
Stephanie revealed that last year, the idea of two-nights turned out to be successful. But continuing this will be a lot more difficult in the future as they hold several events in the same week.
WWE fans have been watching live shows in Thunderdome since August 2020. It seems like the April 5th episode of RAW will be its final episode of Thunderdome in Tropicana Field. After WrestleMania, WWE will shift its Thunderdome to Yuengling Center in Tampa bay.
