WWE is in the middle of some serious television contract talks, and that is an understatement. The company might find a new television home for their content, although the risk of the blue brand being displaced seems much higher.

We previously reported that Warner Bros Discovery might be game to pick up a WWE television show. It seems that SmackDown is the most likely of the two, because NBCUniversal seems to want to keep hold of RAW.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that NBC will probably keep RAW. That being said, FOX might not be willing to offer WWE much more than they are already getting for SmackDown, and that could cause them to leave the network for a new home.

You know there’s been a lot of talk that NBC will probably keep RAW and SmackDown, you know there’s talk that FOX is not willing to go much higher for SmackDown, so somebody may get them, so we’ll have to see how that turns out.


WWE is always open for business, which is what has helped them land so many impressive advertising deals over the past year or so. That being said, their next television deal could be a very important one.

Odds are, SmackDown is not getting cancelled and they will find a new home if FOX doesn’t want to meet WWE’s price. It will be very interesting to see where they go, because the blue brand’s next home will obviously get a viewership boost whenever they air the show.

SmackDown has been on different nights of the week, so they could always move days again. Only time will tell when or how fans will be watching the blue brand in a year from now.

What’s your take on WWE finding a new home for SmackDown? Should they stay on FOX? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
