WWE 'Talking Smack' host learns show was canceled through Twitter

Wrestling blog PWInsider was the first to learn of the news, reporting that the WWE plans to occasionally revive the show to follow its pay-per-view events such as Wrestlemania and SummerSlam. According to PWinsider.com, the WWE has made a decision to stop airing the show weekly, but will still have it following Smackdown Live pay-per-views.

According to Sports Illustrated, the show wasn't cancelled due to lack of viewers, it was cancelled by Vince McMahon himself.

WWE fans on Twitter aren't exactly chanting "This Is Awesome!" over the decision to strike the weekly after-shows - especially the beloved "Talking Smack". 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.

WWE sent out a statement addressing the reports, noting that the show will no longer air after SmackDown Live every Tuesday night, but will instead air only after SmackDown Live branded pay-per-view events.

On this week's episode of Still Real Radio we're talking about Samoa Joe's performance in his big Universal Championship match with Brock Lesnar, as well as all the highlights from WWE Great Balls of Fire.
