WWE’s landscape is set to change in a big way when they move to Fox in October. RAW will be staying on the USA Network, however, SmackDown will find a new home. There is already talk of the blue brand being changed to three hours as well which could be an interesting move.
Triple H confirmed recently that a WWE themed talk show is set to debut on FS1. This entertainment news show will hopefully be able to take some deep dives into WWE storylines and provide extra insight behind the scenes. However, Fox is also interested in bringing in more wrestling shows.
Fox dropped UFC in order to take on WWE which means that they also lost a lot of shows that the MMA promotion provided. WWE could very well fill some of those roles. Because Triple H said in the post-TakeOver conference call that there is a lot of interest in both NXT and NXT UK by Fox.
This could be very interesting and it wouldn’t be hard to sell either of those brands considering the exceptional action they can provide. We will have to wait and see, but WWE’s new deal with Fox could include a lot more wrestling on television than ever before.
