The real headline for battling fans is theyll be able to access the WWE Network as part of the Peacock Premium bundle for $4.99 a month, i.e. half the present cost (and, regardless of initially being ad-free, the WWE Network increasingly included both self- and outside-promotion). Or, a new user can elect for Peacock Premium Plus at $9.99 a month, delivering ad-free access to all that both Peacock and the WWE Network need to offer.
