WWE is doing everything they can to wrap up their time on FOX with the biggest numbers they can possibly generate. Advertisers pay a lot to get their products shown during those precious prime time hours for SmackDown, and they paid even more this year.

WWE SmackDown is moving to the USA Network in 2024, and that will be an amazing deal for the company. That being said, advertisers will probably be shelling out lots of money in the USA Network’s direction for commercial time.

Ad Age noted that WWE SmackDown’s advertising revenue drew around $51,077. That number is up 8% from the previous year. Brandon Thurston posted on X to break down the numbers a bit for fans.

Want to run an ad during Smackdown? It’ll cost you about $51,077, according to AdAge.


Up 8% from about $47,119 last year.

Smackdown is second only to ABC’s Shark Tank among Friday night broadcast shows, despite routinely beating Shark Tank in P18-49.

These are very impressive numbers, and there is also no shame in losing to Shark Tank. After all, that long-running show has a huge mainstream following.

WWE’s mission to continue bringing eyes to the product is continuing, and it is also paying off in a big way. Only time will tell how much more money that WWE rakes in with their next television deal’s advertising, but they are certainly pulling some impressive numbers at this point.

We will have continued coverage of WWE’s ongoing dealings and all of their business moves, right here at Ringside News. 2024 could be a very exciting time for WWE, and anyone who stands to make money from their success.
