The wrestling world has just experienced shockwaves as WWE announced a major change in the television programming of their flagship show, Monday Night RAW. However, it was interesting to note a certain time gap in that shift.
As announced, WWE RAW has found new home for its broadcast in Netflix, which will begin in January 2025. This comes after the current deal with the present home, USA Network comes to an end in October 2024.
However, the thing to notice here is that the red brand finds itself without a broadcasting network for three months until Netflix takes over the flagship programming in 2025. According to Variety, the network where Monday Night RAW will air during that time frame is being determined.
“Exactly where Raw will air between the end of that deal and the beginning of the Netflix deal is still being determined.”
WWE Monday Night RAW has been a prime-time attraction for USA Network since 2005. But it was well known during some time that the global juggernaut was looking at better deals moving forward.
Triple H, Nick Khan, and their team ventured out to look for the best deals for the last few months before the ten-year contract deal with Netflix reportedly worth $5 billion total or $500 million per year came into place.
As far as the three months of 2024 are concerned regarding Monday Night RAW’s telecast, we will keep an eye out for more updates as this story continues to unfold.
