WWE was planning to air Kevin Nash’s interview on the Broken Skull Sessions on July 11th, but that did not happen. The company pulled the special without any reason given. Now we have a bit more clarity about the situation.
The company also pulled a planned Lex Luger Icons special from the WWE Network and Peacock schedule. It was said that the time that they were holding off for a better lead-in.
According to PW Insider, these changes are a result of changes made in WWE. They are currently adjusting to the new “WWE hierarchy under the TV department.” The company fired over 60 people in recent memory as multiple divisions were merged into one department headed by Kevin Dunn.
We are told part of the issue was that with changes made internally to divisions that were folded into each other, there was previously set schedule that was set to roll out and with so many people in new positions learning the ropes, there’s been some growing pains.
It was noted that a new date for the Kevin Nash Broken Skull Sessions interview “should be” announced. It is 100% edited and ready to air, but they are holding off on things. The belief is that ” reshuffling of existing plans will end up being a long-term positive but not all the ducks were in the same row of late.”
As of this writing, “there is no concrete word” on what will happen to the Lex Luger Icons documentary. The company wanted a strong lead-in, so they might wait for a pay-per-view before rolling that one out.
