WWE and Peacock joined forces a little over a year ago. In the time since, we’ve had Wrestlemania on the service, and plenty of other great WWE live shows. Now, the two are teaming up for original programming. Their first outing together is WWE Evil. The new show narrated and Executive Produced by John Cena delves deep into the villains of WWE. It takes an unprecedented look into what it means to be as evil of a villain as possible in WWE. The show also goes into the impacts on mainstream pop culture of these characters and the people behind them.
Benny Reuven, Vice President of Entertainment Unscripted Content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming had this to say:
As Peacock continues to expand its WWE programming, we are thrilled to bring the new original series ‘WWE Evil’ to platform, working with the one and only John Cena. There is no one better to take viewers into the minds of WWE’s fiercest villains than Cena himself. We can’t wait for WWE fans to devour this series.
