We all know that starting on March 18, Peacock will become the new home for the WWE Network but the full transition will not happen till April. Today, WWE gave more details on the switch from the current app to Peacock.

WWE revealed that with the move on March 18th, the current version of the WWE Network as we know it will go away on Sunday, April 4th, what an Easter present. That means starting then you can only watch WWE Network content on Peacock. With the move over WWE did confirm that not everything on the WWE Network will move over at launch. Everything will not even be there by the end of April. WWE stated that the plan is to have everything moved over before SummerSlam in August.

As already known, you will need one of their Peacock Premium tiers to access all upcoming PPVs and current seasons of WWE Original shows for either $4.99(with ads) or $9.99(without ads). The free tier of Peacock will offer a new WWE Channel on the service the plays like a 24/7 WWE channel as we had on the network when it first launched. You will also get select WE Original shows, reality shows like Miz & Mrs., Total Bellas, Total Divas, recent in-ring content, and new weekly episodes of select shows like Raw Talk and WWE’s The Bump live and on-demand.

It was also announced that for new subscribers Peacock has a deal for WWE fans where they can get their first month of Peacock for only $2.50. This is a limited-time offer, but if they do not take the deal down before the end of the month, that means you can watch WWE Fastlane and WrestleMania for under $3.

Starting March 18, Peacock will begin rolling out WWE Network content just before WWE Fastlane, the first WWE pay-per-view event on the service. The new WWE destination on Peacock will feature fan-favorite content at launch, including all past WrestleManias leading up to WrestleMania 37 — streaming exclusively on Peacock.

WWE will have a dedicated page on Peacock where fans can browse and access every PPV event in the last calendar year; current or most recent season episodes of WWE original series Steve Austin’s The Broken Skull Sessions, WWE Chronicle, and WWE Icons; in-ring action with new weekly episodes of NXT the day after air, as well as the 2021 replays of Raw and SmackDown 30 days after air; groundbreaking documentaries, including Undertaker: The Last Ride, WWE 24, and WWE Untold; reality series, including Total Bellas; as well as collections of featured series, topical moments like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Week, and playlists showcasing current Superstars.

Peacock will continually add WWE Network content to the library, making the entire WWE Network archive — including every WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV event in history — available to stream on demand before SummerSlam.
