A new report has revealed a big change coming to WWE pay-per-views soon.
WWE moved their PPVs to the WWE Network in 2014 before eventually reverting the network to the Peacock app in 2021.
In a new interview with The Marchand and Ourand Podcast Report ahead of WrestleMania 39 weekend, WWE CEO Nick Khan discussed the future of the company before their media rights negotiations.
In an interesting note during the conversation, Khan stated that the company would be open to the idea of reverting PPVs, now known as Premium Live Events by WWE, back to the old pay-per-view format. This depends if that was something their media rights holder wanted included after a new deal has been struck.
If NBC Universal landed the rights to everything and wanted to, WWE would be open to charging an additional fee for WrestleMania, Survivor Series, Backlash, etc. for their Peacock subscribers to access those live events.
This is a similar model to what UFC uses with their ESPN+ deal. ESPN has the rights to UFC, so if you are an ESPN+ subscriber, you can then purchase UFC PPVs for an additional premium price.
This would be an intriguing move that would vastly change how WWE fans view their major shows moving forward, so it remains to be seen if this will happen or not.
We will have further updates on the future of WWE on Peacock when they become available.
