Hollywood Reporter Source and PWIsider Say NBCUnurgical Peacock Removing racist scenes from classics WWE match. It’s not clear how much has been edited yet, but the removals include racist language from the 1990 WrestleMania VI event Blackface as well as the 2005 Survival Series 19.

At least the peacock seems to be tough enough in response to WWE – it’s removing the pieces rather than making the bad behavior relevant.
