It has been reported that WWE broadcast partners NBC Universal and FOX are both unhappy with recent decisions made by the company.
It was previously noted that USA Network (under the NBC Universal umbrella) was unhappy with WWE for moving the Universal Championship Hell in a Cell match to SmackDown on FOX.
Dave Meltzer confirmed this report on Wrestling Observer Radio, stating that NBC Universal wasn’t pleased the match was removed from the pay-per-view airing on their streaming service, Peacock.
The report also noted that FOX and WWE also aren’t seeing eye to eye at the moment. FOX reportedly aren’t happy with WWE regularly promoting Peacock during SmackDown.
It was noted that Vince McMahon is having to play a “balancing act” to satisfy both partners. Another report has noted that both FOX and the USA Network have been pitching interesting themed shows to WWE.
In recent months, many fans have criticised the WWE product for feeling stale. McMahon is reportedly saving “good stuff” for when WWE returns to the road next month.
