UPDATE ON WWE NXT TV EXPANSION PLANS

By Mike Johnson on 2019-08-17 10:05:00

In regard to the potential of WWE NXT moving to the USA Network, there are some within WWE who believe USA is a done deal and it's just a matter of time before the deal is announced.  There had been interest from FOX but USA came to the table over the last several weeks.     I should caution that others have shot down that anything is close to done.

We can confirm that there were NXT staff who were told this week in Florida to be prepared for a longer show and that things would be changing very soon.

One source pointed out that NXT has an planned taping at Full Sail University on Wednesday 9/11 and that they could easily launch the show "live" at that taping, then tape on 9/12, which is another announced taping, before settling in for live tapings every week in early October.  If so, they would effectively be in that Wednesday slot a few weeks before AEW launches.

There has been no change to WWE's internal calendar which as of this morning, lists tapings at Full Sail for 9/11, 9/12 and 10/24.

As I wrote yesterday, the ball is in play.
