WWE is on USA Network with RAW and NXT, but the Olympics are starting soon; and that means the sports coverage will take priority over Vince McMahon’s company. NXT is already changing to Syfy for two weeks due to the games, and now WWE is switching up their airing for RAW.
Fans on the West Coast get to watch RAW on a feed that is convenient to their schedules, but the Olympics will change up that feed. According to Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast’s Andrew Zarian, WWE is going to air both East and West Coast feeds at the same time.
Hearing that USA Network will be airing RAW at the same time for both East and West Coast feeds.
The reason has to do with Olympic Coverage.
It was not noted how long this will be an issue, or if it will only be for one week. The Olympic Games have not caused WWE RAW to switch channels yet, but fans on the West Coast will have to change around their schedules to catch the show live, because it will be on much eariler for them during the Olympic Games.
