• WWE Scheduled To Make A Big Announcement Tomorrow

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials are in talks of moving NXT to the USA Network, instead of FS1, for 2 hours on Wednesday nights (to go head-to-head with AEW on TNT).

Below is what Meltzer said:

“So it went from FS1 to USA on Wednesday 8:00 PM EST to 10:00 PM EST. The word that I heard is that they’re trying to get the jump which means it would start before October 2nd whereas before I think it was starting on October 2nd and FS1 was going to be the problem with the Big East Basketball.

I don’t know what USA schedule’s like. So it’s all in play, but yeah I mean we expect that announcement real soon.

WWE fans are more familiar with watching USA than FS1 so that is another thing that leads the USA Network’s favor. Do they go live every week do they go live every other week? Both have been discussed, but there will be a live component for sure.

Do they continue with another hour on the WWE Network which would mean three hours of NXT a week which is starting to stretch and will burn things out or do they drop the WWE Network and the WWE Network subscribers are going to be unhappy. What do they do about international? Because this is coming up.”

In an update to this, WrestleVotes reported that WWE is expected to make an announcement regarding this tomorrow:

Word going on is that NXT will move to USA Network in September, which would be before AEW debuts their TV show on TNT in October.

It should be noted that an episode of NXT aired on the USA Network back in 2017 and it drew 841,000 viewers.
