Peacock's Guaranteed Money Changed Their Booking Strategy ...

WWE used to have to snag and promote their pay-per-view events. The times have changed dramatically. WWE has a guaranteed, huge money streaming agreement with Peacock. That means they get paid whether their premium live events are interesting or not.

But, apparently, it will make any difference in WWE''s money. Appreciably, no, it''s a different era. So, they can get

WWE will make their money whether it be a big main event title match on a given card or not. The Peacock agreement has been a game-changer, as there is far less incentive to sell smaller monthly premium live events. With Roman Reigns working less dates ahead, this is a huge advantage for WWE.
