WWE signed a big deal with Peacock, but the rest of the world still gets the WWE Network. Americans found a way around that issue by using a VPN. Apparently, someone smartened WWE up on that tactic.

Fans in America could still access the WWE Network using a VPN. Now, days before Money in the Bank, they are cracking down on this. A tweet has gone viral on showing a screenshot that someone took while trying to access the WWE Network while using a VPN, and it’s not a good sign for those fans.

“Your device is connected to the internet using a VPN or proxy service. Please disable it and try again,” the prompt reads under a large “SIGN IN TO YOUR WWE ACCOUNT” area. It appears that those fans using a VPN will have to get Peacock now.

It appears that WWE is checking for VPN usage now. Unless a fan has a VPN that can get around however WWE is checking for VPN use, then it looks like WWE has found a solution to their problem.


This is certainly frustrating a lot of fans out there. Also, let this article serve as a “heads up” to any of our American readers who were still enjoying the WWE Network while they could.
