According to The Hollywood Reporter, WWE’s weekly flagship show, Monday Night RAW will most likely be staying on the USA Network. According to the report, NBCUniversal is said to be on the edge of renewing the deal for RAW at three times its current value. Although WWE is yet to comment on the matter, it is still not clear whether NBCUniversal would keep RAW at 3 hours or 2 hours. CEO of WWE, Vince McMahon has always been in favour of keeping the red brand’s show under 3 hours but extended to 3 hours at the request of the USA Network. WWE will be receiving their biggest money deal ever if the report turns out to be true.

On the other hand, SmackDown Live still has its fate hanging as NBCUniversal has declined to renew the deal for the blue brand’s weekly show. It was earlier speculated that SmackDown Live would move to FOX. NBCUniversal had shed $30 million for the SmackDown franchise back in 2010.

WWE’s current deal with NBCUniversal is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2019. The wrestling promotion giant had earlier declared to announce their U.S. distribution plans between May and September. WWE’s current contract with NBCUniversal generated $180 million last year.
