  • Raw and Smackdown May Be Leaving USA and SYFY

    Raw and Smackdown may lose their homes on USA and Syfy

    Basically, the WWE and NBCU didn't come to terms on a new licensing deal during negotiations. WWE now has the opportunity to field offers from other networks, although NBCU still has the right to match any offer made. I'm a little surprised NBC didn't pay up considering Raw is still a ratings powerhouse even today, and Smackdown on Syfy and the Divas show on E! do really well for them too. But maybe the WWE considers this a good thing. I'm sure some network will offer them what they were asking.

    I don't know if I give a shit really. Change is sometimes a good thing.

        But didn't they fail when they tried to move Saturday Night's Main Event to FOX, and RAW to TNN?

            I wonder if NBCU has let this happen to allow the WWE to shop around and then come back for a lower price. Pro wrestling isn't as popular as its been in the past.

                Just eecause WWE didn't accept NBCU's offer doesn't mean that they're moving. WWE wasn't expected to accept no matter what was offered because they wanted to see what other offers they'll be given. They'll still probably end up staying on USA AND SyFy.

                And this wasn't NBCU's decision it was WWE's. Plus WWE are gonna get at least twice what they get now, not less. Wrestling's still popular. And sports TV is getting a premium right now.

                    Maybe those two shows will be moved exclusively to the WWE Network.

                        How would WWE grow its fan base then? Raw and SmackDown need to be on TV.

                            I will never forgive USA for airing the dog contests during the Attitude Era of RAW.

                            I used to be devastated about that.
