‘Talking Smack’ Canceled as Weekly WWE Network Show

Post-“SmackDown Live” talk show and “Raw Talk” will be reprogrammed to just follow pay-per-view events

WWE is shuttering its “Talking Smack” talk show, which aired on the WWE Network following Tuesday’s “SmackDown Live.”

The post-show, as well as the “Monday Night Raw” version “Raw Talk,” will be reprogrammed to strictly follow pay-per-view events, WWE said. Meanwhile, Cruiserweight series “205 Live” will continue to run Tuesday nights on the WWE Network and will follow “SmackDown.”

“We continuously review WWE Network’s programming line-up based on a variety of factors, including viewership and subscriber research,” a WWE spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement. “‘Talking Smack’ and ‘Raw Talk’ will air following pay-per-view events, and Tuesday will continue to feature ‘205 Live.'”

WWE fans on Twitter aren’t exactly chanting “This Is Awesome!” over the decision to eliminate a weekly “Talking Smack.”
