Cost-cutting WWE cancels Talking Smack, Total Divas, Raw, and WrestleMania

WWE cancelled

Talking Smack is one of numerous cancellations. Tragically, Holy Foley is not among them.

In an effort to curb spending and streamline its operations, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced today that it has cancelled a number of its programs, including Talking Smack, Raw, and WrestleMania. 

“This is what’s best for business,” said COO Hunter Hearst Helmsley, moments before spewing a geyser of water all over himself. 

The sports-entertainment company will save millions of dollars annually by cutting its most expensive productions, such as talking smack, and its lesser-known, poorly rated programming such as WrestleMania. 

The company also announced that, as part of its cost-cutting measures, the number of annual pay-per-view events will be reduced from the current 534 to a lean 291. 

To offset the reduction in revenue streams, the company will stay profitable by increasing the monthly subscription fee for the WWE Network to $79.99.
