Confidential was a unique program for the company, in that it was not a standard "live event" or "recap" show. Rather, it offered an exclusive, "behind the scenes" look into WWE and its talent, both in-ring and otherwise. The show also periodically broke kayfabe and used professional wrestling slang. Confidential was discontinued in 2004 and was replaced with The WWE Experience, a more traditional weekly summary show.
A similar show to Confidential eventually returned under the name WWE Outside the Ring, but in a shortened version. The new online show debuted February 2012 on WWE's YouTube channel and has since been aired on Thursdays.
Following the launch of the WWE Network on February 2014, selected segments from Confidential episodes have aired as interstitials on the 24/7 live stream.
