Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso is reporting that Talking Smack was cancelled because Vince McMahon felt that the unscripted style of the show wasn’t best for the company’s interest. The report noted that Vince McMahon was unhappy for the show and decided to stop airing it on a weekly basis.

McMahon has been less present at WWE events as of late. However, he attended the TV tapings this week and made the decision on Tuesday night to cancel Talking Smack as a weekly show.

Even though McMahon cancelled Talking Smack on Tuesday night, hosts of the show Daniel Bryan and Renee Young had no idea that was the case until they saw fans sending them messages on Twitter.

WWE has issued the following statement on the future of the show:

“We continuously review WWE Network’s programming line-up based on a variety of factors, including viewership and subscriber research. Talking Smack and Raw Talk will air following pay-per-view events, and Tuesday will continue to feature 205 Live.”
