Dave Meltzer commented on WWE’s current television contract negotiations on Wrestling Observer Live when it was pointed out that the new contracts wouldn’t go into effect until Fall 2019.

“They do want to sign all these deals by September if not earlier.”

So although we won’t actually see Raw or SmackDown Live leave or stay with USA Network for over a year from now, WWE wants to know what’s going on by September. But odds are SmackDown Live will be taking off, it’s just a matter of where.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
