WWE presented Money in the Bank on Peacock last night, but a lot of fans found themselves in a very tough situation trying to watch the event. The feed started glitching out in a big way just as the Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match was starting. That was a huge issue, but the show kept going.
Fans missed all of the entrances before the Money in the Bank ladder match. They were not happy about that at all. Finally, word got out that the problem was fixed, but fans still had to log out and then log back in.
According to PW Insider, WWE didn’t know about this error at first. That is why the show continued without stopping at all.
The short answer is that WWE wasn’t initially aware there were any issues. The problems were only with Peacock in the United States and the issues were not emanating from Fort Worth, Texas, where WWE is broadcasting the show.
The WWE Network had no issues, but fans in America are no longer allowed to use that service. WWE is even blocking VPNs from accessing the traditional WWE Network at this point.
It’s unclear what the exact issue was, but the problem came from Peacock. It had nothing to do with WWE, which is why they didn’t know about the issue at first. Hopefully, this doesn’t happen again as WWE continues presenting pay-per-views through the NBCU streaming platform.
