WWE reportedly interested in relaunching Talking Smack


According to PWInsider, WWE may be relaunching Talking Smack, its SmackDown post-show.

The report said they have been considering bringing the show back since January but now may revive it by the end of the month on the WWE Network. This summer, they created Raw Talk, a post-show that debuted in concert with the launch of the Network's free tier.

The original version of Talking Smack was hosted by Renee Young and gave WWE talents the chance to expand their characters and angles with interviews that got social media buzz as they were unlike what fans would see on WWE TV. It was canceled in July 2017 as Vince McMahon reportedly didn't think it served the company's best interests.

If accurate, the relaunch would come in an already busy month for WWE as they take up residency at Orlando's Amway Center for two months and introduce ThunderDome, an in-arena virtual fan experience that is similar to what the NBA has done for their games in Orlando.
