WWE Chairman Vince McMahon takes all the calls about the TV deals. It has been noted that WWE has deals with FOX and NBCU and they are two competing network entities. It was previously reported that FOX has expressed distaste about Peacock getting so much promotion during their WWE programming. This is turned out to be interesting as it has been also noted that WWE allegedly blocked another company from getting a spot on Fox’s streaming platform. Shane McMahon ‘Banned’ WWE Star From Office
WWE blocks other company
Fightful Select reported that a source in WWE stated that if FOX wanted WWE programming so badly, then they could have bid the money that Peacock did. FOX owns a streaming platform, Tubi, and it has sparked controversy.
It was noted in the report that WWE stopped Tubi from inking a deal with another “third-party wrestling company” who had landed a deal with Tubi. MLW is the company in question.
A source close to Fox that Fightful spoke with indicated that WWE did not respond favorably to the deal, which was to be announced imminently after WWE was made aware. As a result, the future of that third party deal was in question.
FOX also rejected to comment on this story, also MLW and WWE declined to release an official comment on the matter.
