Peacock paying for WWE WrestleMania Super Bowl LVI Ad
WWE will have a presence tomorrow night at Super Bowl LVI because there will be two ads airing to promote WrestleMania on Peacock. One :30 Pre-game commercial and One :15 second ad during the game. Vince McMahon feels Super Bowl ads are a waste of money, as the WWF ad from 1999 had everyone talking about it, but Vince felt like it was too expensive for was it was worth. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer added that ads aren’t even being paid for by WWE. Meltzer says Vince McMahon has always regretted the buy back in ‘99. Tomorrow’s ads will be for Peacock — WWE’s domestic streaming partner, which is owned by NBCUniversal. “The WWE is not buying the commercial. The network is buying the commercials. It’s a Peacock commercial, not a WWE commercial. WrestleMania will be featured in the Peacock commercial” said Meltzer.
