Report: WWE Monday Night Raw & WWE NXT Both Leaving USA Network

-- Earlier today, it was announced that WWE's Friday Night Smackdown will be moving from FOX to the USA Network beginning in the fourth quarter of 2024 as part of a new deal that is worth a reported $1.4 billion. The Hollywood Reporter is now indicating that with NBCUniversal securing the rights to Smackdown, it will mean that both WWE Monday Night Raw and WWE NXT will be leaving the USA Network, noting that the market for Raw is "extremely active" with several entities interested in gaining rights to air WWE's long-running series.

While the new deal will bring WWE to NBC primetime and SmackDown to USA on Friday nights, it will also mean the end of Raw and NXT on USA. A source familiar with the Raw discussions tell The Hollywood Reporter that the market for the program is “extremely active,” with traditional linear networks, streaming services and “unexpected players” all interested.
