Here's Why G4's WWE Themed Episode Didn't Air Today

G4 and WWE have been teaming up quite a bit since Xavier Woods joined the network, and they even created a true G4 WWE combo in the recently relaunched Arena series. The latest example of this ongoing partnership was a WWE-heavy takeover of Attack of the Show, which was set to feature Bayley, Tyler Breeze, Huge E, and Kofi Kingston. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen today, as the episode was cancelled. G4 announced the news on their social media pages, and while they didn’t specify why it was cancelled, there was news today that G4 just suffered major layoffs, and that is possible the reason the episode was cancelled. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by today’s layoffs, and ideally, everyone bounces back soon.
According to a report by Kotaku, at least 20 to 30 members of the G4TV staff were laid off today, and those layoffs greeted employees as they came in for shooting, with HR reps meeting individually with employees. Programming was cancelled and one source said that those affected would get between 16 weeks and 6 months of severance, contingent upon how long they’ve been with G4’s parent company Comcast.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, all G4 streams today have been cancelled, but we will return with all of our regularly scheduled content tomorrow.
