WWE didn’t reveal how much they’re making from the USA Network to air NXT every week. This made some people nervous. There was also a rumor in the industry that WWE might not be getting anything to air the black and gold brand’s show every week.

Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is getting $30 million from USA Network to air NXT every Wednesday night.

That much comes down to $576,923 per episode of NXT if you’re talking about 52 episodes. Of course, NXT doesn’t have live shows every week due to Christmas so that number is down a bit.

Just over half a million per episode is much better than the zero number that was rumored.


NXT Superstars are finally getting raises. They have to sign new multi-year contracts before they get that money though.

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.
