Despite reports of Talking Smack being cancelled due to low viewership, according to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, the reason for the weekly format coming to an end was due to Vince McMahon. The unscripted style of the show played a part as Vince was not pleased with the show and felt it wasn't best for the company's interests.
"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."
