WWE Raw Likely To Stay On USA Network

WWE 'Smackdown' Up for Grabs as NBCUniversal Moves to Pin Down 'Raw'

In addition to Raw and Smackdown, WWE produces Main Event and Superstars for their streaming Network service. Fox secured the rights to Thursday Night Football this year for a huge five-year, $550 million deal, and Fox is expected to invest heavily in live sports programming as it divests itself of its sister production company 21st Century Fox Television in Fox's sale with Disney.

SmackDown Live has aired on USA Network since July 2016, and it has been under the NBCUniversal umbrella dating back to 2010, when it was on Syfy. However, WWE may still be able to also shop SmackDown to another network (presumably Fox) to gain even more revenue. The program now airs live every Tuesday from 8-10 p.m.

It has always been speculated that FOX is interested in getting into the WWE business, and SmackDown may well find its way to the network. "So, our ability to do that, if it made sense economically, there were partners interested, if we felt comfortable with the partners in question, operationally we would not see an issue with doing that". NBCU is said to be focusing on renewing its pact for WWE's Raw, another wrestling franchise, and that deal is expected to close at as much as three times its current value.

Especially after the brand extension in 2016, it wouldn't hurt to create more separation between WWE's two biggest weekly programs.

For this latest cycle, early reports indicate that WWE's outlook could be very, very different.
