NBCUniversal is keeping WWE Raw, Smackdown Live moving to another network

In addition to Raw and Smackdown, WWE produces Main Event and Superstars for their streaming Network service.

For the past few years now, NBCUniversal owned the rights to both WWE Raw and Smackdown Live. NBCUniversal is expected to pay as much as three times the current deal for Raw, which airs on USA Network.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that NBCUniversal declined to re-sign Smackdown Live meaning the show is being shopped around to various other TV network stations.

The belief was that WWE could end up on FOX and if that did happen then Monday Night Raw would go to FOX while SmackDown Live would go to FOX Sports 1.

NDMC ranked cleanest city in Survekshan survey 2018
He further said, "79% of the respondents from 4,203 cities and town have reported a definite improvement in cleanliness". I am not surprised at the results.

While that sounds like a problem for WWE, it's more of an embarassment of riches.

SmackDown Live has aired on USA Network since July 2016, and it has been under the NBCUniversal umbrella dating back to 2010, when it was on Syfy.

WWE's deal with USA / NBC expires on September 30, 2019, and they are now in an exclusive negotiating period with each other until the end of this spring. At the time, US aired five hours of live WWE programming a week; WWE programming now airs two nights a week on USA.

And if it is Raw on United States of America and SmackDown on Fox broadcast television, the question then might become whether WWE decides to elevate SmackDown to being the unofficial "A" show. Throughout much of its existence, SmackDown has been seen as secondary to Raw, no matter how much WWE would do to present the two shows as equal.
