WWE on peacock

I just signed up for peacock over the weekend, and I was wondering if you have heard any other complaints about it so far from other readers. It’s still early, but as of right now I am pretty disappointed with it compared to the old WWE network for a couple of reasons. 1. There is a ton of missing content. I know more will be added over time, but I doubt it will ever all get there. Right now there is almost no WCW or ECW content, and the Raw and Smackdown archives only go back to 2008 and 2019 respectively. 2. Navigating the archives is terrible. When you click on an event, the boxes at the bottom of the screen allowing you to choose a certain segment are no longer there. You are left to blindly face forward in order to search for a match or segment, and oftentimes this fast forwarding ends with 30 to 60 seconds of commercials before you are even able to see where you are. Overall, this seems like its going to be a major downgrade for people who watch a lot of old classic content. You are lucky to be in Canada and still able to use the old network.
Yeah I've heard tons of complaints thus far. I was actually feeling paranoid about losing access next week so I signed up for the Canadian version through my cable provider for the $15 a month, and that way I know for sure my account won't magically disappear and I also can watch the linear channel on TV too. I had to cancel Impact Plus to even things out, but I'm sure I'll get over it.
