• WWE Making $50 Million Per Year From NXT On USA Network

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE is making a minimum of $50 million per year with NXT moving to the USA Network (which means about $1 million per episode). The NXT wrestlers are expected to get a raise, but not a big one.

If NXT gets a good rating on the USA Network, then expect WWE to make even more money with this deal.

It should be noted that this is around the same amount of money WWE makes with a single Saudi Arabia pay-per-view event.
