WWE is expected to move their weekly NXT programming off the WWE Network beginning this fall opposite of AEW’s TNT Show.
While it was expected that WWE will move the program to FS1, over the last 48 hours a pitch has been made to move the program to the USA Network according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.
There’s a pitch for the series to be moved to Wednesdays on the USA Network starting this October, with the idea NXT would be graduate into a live two-hour series from Full Sail University in Florida. The idea would be for the series to start in that form on 10/2, which of course is the same date that All Elite Wrestling launches its own weekly series on TNT.
Based on this latest report, the program will begin to air taped episodes, and gradually move to a live two-hour program every week from Full Sail University in Orlando, FL.
WWE is clearly serious about moving the program to cable television, whether that be with FS1 or USA Network.
