WWE’s Talking Smack show, which broadcast on the WWE Network directly after Smackdown Live! is no more. And while most of the Internet was mourning the loss of one of WWE’s most popular (and explosive programs), its host found out via a random Twitter user.
Renee Young hosted the weekly program, and it usually also included Daniel Bryan, Shane McMahon and a variety of other superstars from the latest episode.
“WWE has canceled Talking Smack as a weekly series, multiple sources have confirmed with PWInsider.com.
“This past Tuesday’s episode was its final episode on the WWE Network.”
Due to the arrival of WWE’s fourth brand, 205 Live, Talking Smack never recovered from moving to an even later time slot on the WWE Network following both Smackdown Live and 205 Live.
Talking Smack launched just last year, but quickly caught fire thanks to the mix of fantasy and reality. Take this heated discussion between Bryan and the Miz from early January.
It was another interesting wrinkle to the blue brand, especially when it first moved to Tuesday night’s and became a live program. Raw Talk followed suit after the Monday program, but it never quite caught on how the Tuesday version did.
It will be missed.
