Within this infobesity that WWE exercises in the last years, it is certain that we have been able to find stimulating programs outside the fighting content itself. One of them is Talking Smack, which yesterday we learned of its sudden cancellation as a weekly delivery , becoming monthly content , equating in this way with Raw Talk, which is issued after each PPV of the chronology.
Of course, the company did not give the reasons behind this decision, publishing a brief statement informing that the change is based on “the number of visits and searches of subscribers.” Does this mean that your cancellation is due to a lack of hearing? Speculation continues to roll between the IWC, and point out that again Raw does not want SmackDown to prevail; Talking Smack is a much more stimulating program than Raw Talk, and surely the company’s leadership is aware.
It seems that this weekly cancellation has not only caught the WWE Universe by surprise, as Renee Young hinted that she was not informed , showing her astonishment to discover it through a fan via Twitter. But not only the Canadian wanted to express her dissatisfaction, The Miz also joined the “condolences”, with a resounding RIP (DEP) in one of her tweets:

“DEP Talking Smack. I enjoyed the freedom this show gave the WWE talent to show what they were capable of. Renee Young got the best of them all “
And the thing is not here, because even SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan had to learn indirectly about the “death” of the show:

“I connect to the network to support the #SamiForSyria initiative and I come across this. I am the General Manager !!! Nobody tells me anything !!! “
Dave Meltzer wanted to get out of the speculation, clarifying why we will not see Talking Smack every Tuesday after 205 Live ; And it seems that it would not have to do with any attempt to improve the audience for this cruise show. According to the editor of the Wrestling Observer, that concise WWE release already solved the possible doubts:
Not enough people watched it https://t.co/hb39lYlQxw

And I regain the previous thread, as many fans now believe that the issuance of Talking Smack just after the cruises undermined its follow up . It was said at the time that this change in the grid, which occurred there in November with the release of 205 Live , did not like many behind the scenes because it would harm the protagonism of the talk show. It is evident that this has ended up happening, and the worst thing is that it has not served to promote and ensure the continuity of the cruiserweights , with a “mark” always on the edge of the abyss. In any case, let’s enjoy at least every monthly delivery of Talking Smack. Whenever possible.
