Tonight’s WWE Raw will see the return of the King Of The Ring tournament for the first time in five years as the likes of Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe, Drew McIntyre and Andrade look to become all kinds of regal.
Over the weekend, it was reported here, there, and just about everywhere else that WWE would also be making a huge announcement during this week’s red brand show.
Dave Meltzer claims to have been told what it is, with an announcement that NXT’s weekly TV show is going to move from its regular WWE Network slot to the USA Network seemingly in the offing.
Here’s what Meltzer penned during yesterday’s F4WOnline Daily Update: “WWE will be announcing the NXT television deal on USA on Raw tomorrow night. I’m told there is one more significant bit of news that will be announced related to this deal on the show.”
There is no word what that second announcement is going to be at the time of writing.
It was expected that should NXT move to television, Fox would be its new home with SmackDown Live moving to the network on October 4.
AEW’s as yet unnamed weekly TNT show will start on Wednesday, October, 2 – seemingly up against NXT on the USA Network.
