WWE has a few partners in television and everyone needs content right now. This makes WWE convenient associates to have at a time like this.
ESPN scored over 800,000 viewers by re-airing a six-year-old WrestleMania event last week. FS1 is about to get a pay-per-view that is much more recent.
FS1 will air the 2020 Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Tuesday from 7:00 PM EST to 11:00 PM EST and again at midnight. They will air the event on FS2 on Thursday from 6:00 PM EST to 10:00 PM EST. That won’t be the only WWE content on Fox Sports that week.
