WWE is moving NXT to the USA Network and plenty of people have a lot of questions about what is going to happen next as the Wednesday Night Wars continue.
Dave Meltzer reports that WWE is making a minimum of $50 million a year off of the rights fees with NXT’s move to the USA Network. Their Superstars might be getting a raise too, but “it won’t be much.”
Of course, WWE could always make more than that if the ratings are good enough, but $50 million seems to be the minimum they will be making.
That equals out to around $961,000 per episode which is very good. We’ll have to see how the ratings are for NXT on the USA Network. They had a tester of sorts in 2017 during WWE Week and they did quite well with their overnight ratings. However, there wasn’t another pro wrestling show running directly opposite to them in the same time slot at the time.
