This success comes as the increasingly

some instances, even fall and viewership

and also doubled WWE viewership in total on
Peacock over the past WrestleMania weekend
compared to the year prior.

second most watched live event in the
history of Peacock, behind only this year’s

WWE is reaching new fans on the Peacock
streaming service, growing WWE’s audience
with the growth of Peacock.
