Report: FOX/NBCU Pushing For More Crossover Integration With WWE


-- In a follow up to a previous post about WWE likely bringing back "themed" shows such as Old School Raw, King of the Ring, Viewers Choice, Taboo Tuesday and Raw Roulette, fightfulselect.com reports that the reason for this direction is due a push from USA/NBC and FOX who are looking for more integration with other sports that the stations air. Specifically, tie-ins to NASCAR that would focus on a major race that would include race cars and star drivers as well as another pitch that would align with the start of Sunday Night Football and have "football themed matches and angles" in the presence of NFL players and commentators. Another idea proposed is a Wrestling World Cup and NBC has pitched a "points month" where things like wins, signature or finishing moves are assigned points with wrestlers accumulating them throughout that month.
