WWE has a lot of programming currently scheduled, and it seems like they are in no mood to stop any time soon. With the addition of NXT on USA Network, WWE has three brands currently airing live on national television.

On Monday, September 16, WWE filed a trademark for a new television show called ‘The Bump‘. Bump is used in wrestling jargon when a wrestler takes a hard landing on the mat. It is unclear what the show name actually relates to as of now.

The full trademark listing is as follows:

“A show about professional wrestling; the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing wrestling news and information through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing information in the fields of professional wrestling through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing a website in the field of professional wrestling”

There are rumors of WWE launching a new show on FS1 following SmackDown’s move to FOX on Friday nights starting in two weeks’ time. The show was reported to be a recap show hosted by Renee Young and Cathy Kelley.

Apart from the wrestling shows, WWE has several side-shows/recap shows in different countries. WWE Main-Event, WWE Afterburn, etc are some of the other shows on television presented by WWE.

WWE had earlier filed a trademark for WWE After The Bell, but those plans have presumably been dropped. The new recap show is set to be inspired by the highly popular ‘Talking Smack’, which followed SmackDown episodes during 2016.

WWE has a lot of content going on right now, and with the addition of one more show, it’s going to get even tougher for WWE to ensure there is smooth sailing and no overburn for the fans.
