WWE Reportedly Cancels Talking Smack as a Weekly Series

WWE host Renee Young

The company has canceled their popular show "Talking Smack", which took place following #SmackDown Live every week on the #Wwe Network.

PWInsider is reporting that WWE has canceled Talking Smack and it will no longer be a weekly series on the WWE Network. WWE released the following statement.

Hosted by Renee Young, and oftentimes joined by Daniel Bryan or Shane McMahon, the show allowed both fans to enjoy the aftermath of SmackDown Live events by adding another layer to current feuds, as well as spotlight certain superstars who need the extra rub. That was the controversial segment where The Miz mocked Daniel Bryan for not being able to wrestle anymore and going on a tirade about how he works harder and cares more about wrestling than Bryan did.

In particular, the appearances of Daniel Bryan and The Miz - who regularly exchanged verbal barbs on Talking Smack previous year, prompting rumours of a return to the ring for the Smackdown GM - were heavily praised. This past Tuesday's episode was the final episode. Even stranger, it truly seemed like WWE's talents were benefiting from the free-form arena Talking Smack supplied. "Talking Smack and Raw Talk will air following pay-per-view events, and will continue to feature 205 LIVE".

When 205 Live debuted on the Network, Talking Smack was moved back an hour and was taped during that show.
