ROKU Picks Up Quibi Streaming Service, WWE’s Fight Like A Girl To Be Featured


ROKU has announced that they have acquired the rights to all Quibi programming, which means WWE’s “Fight Like A Girl” has a new home.

Quibi was a short-lived mobile streaming service that flopped and died out after around six months. Ten episodes of WWE’s ‘Fight Like A Girl’ were featured on the streaming network, as various WWE Superstars paired up with a woman who was feeling held back by personal issues.

Stephanie McMahon, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Nikki and Brie Bella, Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Sonya Deville, Natalya, Paige and Nia Jax all made appearances on the program.

Here is the full announcement from ROKU:
