WWE Removing Controversial Content From ALL Network Versions

WWE Removing Controversial Content From ALL Network Versions

Over the last few days, a lot has been made of the fact that Peacock has been deleting some of the controversial moments from wrestling history from the WWE Network on their streaming service.

However, it seems like this is not only an issue for people in America using the Peacock version of the WWE Network, but also for all subscribers across the globe.

One of the moments initially removed from Peacock was Roddy Piper vs. Bad News Brown from WrestleMania 6, where Piper painted himself half black, and this has also been removed from the international Network too,

As pointed out below, you can no longer watch the match on the WWE Network, nor the backstage segment from Piper. You can also no longer see the segment from Survivor Series 2005 where Vince McMahon used the N-word.

One fan noted on Twitter that this must have been a very recent change, as they were watching WrestleMania 6 on the UK version of the WWE Network yesterday and were still able to watch the Roddy Piper match and promo.
