WWE Raw Likely To Stay On USA Network

WWE Smack Down Live General Manager Paige

WWE has talked with the USA Network, FOX, Disney, CBS, Amazon, and YouTube. Belloni also said that the deal to keep Raw was for 3-times their current value so WWE management must be thrilled with that. Sources say that FOX is being speculated as the next home for Smackdown, which has been on NBCU networks since 2010. The show began airing that year on Syfy, with corporate sibling US heavily promoting it. Smackdown moved full time to United States of America in January 2016, as the cable network home to Mr. Robot and The Sinner aired all three WWE shows: Smackdown, Raw and Tough Enough.

While that sounds like a problem for WWE, it's more of an embarassment of riches.

If a new report is to be believed, WWE is cashing in big on WWE Monday Night Raw, and will be looking to do the same for Tuesday's Smackdown Live - but the latter likely won't be on the USA Network.

WWE's contract with NBCU is set to expire in September 2019. SmackDown started airing live in May 2016, increasing the value for advertising during the wrestling show. Presumably, that would mean that Raw would stay on the USA Network but it's possible that they could move to one of their other networks.

The Fox connection has been in the conversation for months now with there even being rumor and innuendo that Fox could try to buy WWE outright. FOX is said to be among the networks interested in WWE programming so the show could land there.
