NXT moves to USA Network on Sept. 18. Wednesday nights live from Full Sail University.





Quote:
NEW YORK and STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE and USA Network today announced an agreement in principle to air WWE’s weekly Wednesday night show, NXT, live on USA Network at 8/7 C starting Sept. 18.

Following NXT’s growth in popularity, the new two-hour weekly show will expand its reach on USA Network, the leader in cable entertainment, while staying in its Wednesday night timeslot that it has held since 2015.

“The move to USA Network provides an opportunity to deepen our relationship with NBCUniversal and further build the NXT brand,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO. “Over the long term, our goal is to develop a following that can be monetized to the same level as our flagship programs, Raw and SmackDown.”

“USA Network and WWE have one of the longest and most successful partnerships in television history,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks – USA and SYFY. “As the No. 1 cable entertainment network, we’re excited to add NXT to our weekly lineup alongside powerhouse flagship Raw and to bring a new generation of Superstars to a wide audience.”

NXT launched in 2010 and has risen to become WWE’s third global brand alongside Raw and SmackDown, hosting nearly 200 live events around the world each year. Airing on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m., NXT has been WWE Network’s No. 1 weekly series.

NXT offers a unique blend of authentic in-ring action with exciting and entertaining storylines that feature WWE’s hottest up-and-coming Superstars, including Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream, Shayna Baszler, Johnny Gargano, Matt Riddle, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, Candice LeRae, Tommaso Ciampa, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish. The brand’s diverse roster consists of elite athletes from the NFL, collegiate and amateur sports, MMA, competitive bodybuilding and international sports such as rugby, kushti and kabaddi. It is also the birthplace to 80 percent of the current Raw and SmackDown rosters, including Becky Lynch, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Bray Wyatt and Baron Corbin.

The series will continue to emanate from Full Sail University in Orlando as part of WWE’s production partnership with the preeminent entertainment, media, arts and technology institution.

Before anyone screams about Dave Meltzer or whatever, he also released this news earlier today.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

pretty telling what Vince thinks your company is worth if he's putting his development league up against you instead of a main show

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

With WWE being able to make more money on another televised show, they should be able to afford cutting Raw back to 2 hours. But I doubt they will.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

I pray that none of this is true. If there is anything that Meltzer is wrong and inaccurate about please let it be this.

Yeah, Vince isn't shock at all. That's why he's moving one of the network draws to national TV, raising everyone's salaries and locking people to 5 year deals.

Re: PWINSIDER: NXT moving to USA Network

vince and Dunn running the show just perfectly makes sense, no way they wouldn't be in charge if it' on the USA Network.

I guess those rumors of Triple H losing political power during the last few months might have legs. Now he'd be running nothing.

Is THE GAME losing his game behind the scenes?
