WWE on Peacock

The WWE hub on Peacock has (almost) everything a pro wrestling fan could ask for, all included with a basic Peacock subscription.

In 2021, pro wrestling subscription streamer WWE Network transitioned all content, including live pay-per-view events like WrestleMania and the Royal Rumble, to NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock (in the United States). That’s tens of thousands of hours of squared-circle action included with a standard Peacock sub—as Ric Flair would so eloquently put it, “Wooo!”

The WWE hub on Peacock features over 60 years of new and classic wrestling content from not only World Wrestling Entertainment but also acquired legacy franchises like WCW and ECW. Minus a couple of omissions that will irk cord-cutting fans of Raw and SmackDown, WWE on Peacock hits like an elbow off the top rope.

WWE on Peacock categories and shows

WWE Events

Live, formerly pay-per-view events are the crown jewel of Peacock’s WWE hub, exclusively streaming big-time battle bashes like the above-mentioned WrestleMania, Summer Slam, and, well, Crown Jewel. You can watch live as the action is happening, or on-demand the next day, at no extra cost beyond your Peacock subscription (either the ad-supported or ad-free plan). Considering that WWE PPV events used to cost upwards of $50 each through cable or satellite, not a bad deal.

Best of WWE

The Best of WWE category is a varied grab-bag of compilation shows like The 50 Greatest Finishing Moves in WWE History, WrestleMania’s Legendary Moments, and The Top 100 Moments in Raw History, as well as historical docuseries like The 50 Greatest, WWE Hall of Fame, and Break It Down. There’s also a dedicated 24/7 Best of WWE channel in Peacock’s “Live” TV section if you’d just rather let it loop than choose a show.

WWE Rivalries

If you love a grudge match—what wrestling fan doesn’t?—WWE Rivalries features such docs as The Rock vs. John Cena, WWE Top 25 Rivalries, and Dream Match Mania. Many shows under Peacock’s WWE mantle cross over into other categories, which means past PPV events also fall in WWE Rivalries, like Money in the Bank, Backlash, and Elimination Chamber. You can also find WWE’s vintage Rebellion events here—check The Rock vs. Triple H in a steel cage match in 1999!

WWE Superstars

WWE Superstars shares several titles with other sections in the WWE hub, mostly documentaries focusing on individual wrestlers like Brock Lesnar, Sasha Banks, and the legendary Stone Cold Steve Austin. There’s also Uncool with Alexa Bliss, a talk show wherein the one-time women’s champion interviews fellow wrestlers and celebrities, and The Bump, a weekly SportsCenter-style roundtable series. Young Rock, Dwayne Johnson’s autobiographical NBC sitcom, can also be found in the WWE hub, because why not?

WWE Documentaries

They’re suspiciously scandal-free and corporate, but WWE’s deep bench of documentaries is still an entertaining look into the careers of wrestling’s best. Becky Lynch, Roman Reigns, Charlotte Flair, Goldberg, Rey Mysterio, Bianca Belair, Drew McIntyre, and dozens of other current WWE personalities are profiled, and you can also find classic docs about Chris Jericho, Hulk Hogan, The Dudley Boyz, and other wrestling legends. If you’re looking for down-and-dirty wrestling hot goss, check out Dark Side of the Ring on VICE and Hulu.

WWE TV

Weekly WWE network TV shows Raw (USA Network) and SmackDown (FOX, FS1) aren’t available to stream as quickly as PPV events and farm-league series NXT, both of which reach Peacock the day after broadcast. Thanks to an exclusive deal with Hulu, Raw and SmackDown episodes are delayed by 30 days on Peacock, which is as weird as WWE chairman Vince McMahon’s recent black hair and mustache makeover that makes him look like a lost Mario brother.

WWE Home Video

Old-school wrestling aficionados could spend many a weekend soaking up the WWE Home Video selection, which features dozens of VHS-era titles centered on “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, The Ultimate Warrior, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Shawn Michaels, Paul Bearer, and more. If there’s a more inspirational documentary than 1989’s “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan feature, we’ve yet to see it.

WWE on Peacock FAQ

Are WWE pay-per-view events free on Peacock?

WWE premium live events like WrestleMania and Royal Rumble are available to stream at no extra cost on Peacock. Before moving to Peacock, WWE live events would cost $50 or more through pay-per-view channels on cable and satellite TV.

Are Raw and SmackDown episodes available the next day on Peacock?

Monday night episodes of Raw (which airs on USA Network) and Friday night episodes of SmackDown (airing on FOX or sometimes FS1) are made available on Peacock 30 days after the airdate, not the next day. Only WWE premium live events and USA Network’s NXT are available the next day on Peacock.

Are Raw and SmackDown episodes available the next day on Hulu?

Raw and SmackDown episodes are available to stream the day after they air on USA Network and FOX due to an exclusive deal that was made before WWE Network moved to Peacock. When that deal with Hulu expires, it’s expected that Peacock will bid to acquire next-day streaming rights to Raw and SmackDown.
