Additionally, Netflix will become the exclusive home for all WWE programming (including SmackDown, NXT, WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Royal Rumble) outside the U.S.
“This deal is transformative,” TKO President and COO Mark Shapiro said in a statement Tuesday. “It marries the can’t-miss WWE product with Netflix’s extraordinary global reach and locks in significant and predictable economics for many years. Our partnership fundamentally alters and strengthens the media landscape, dramatically expands the reach of WWE, and brings weekly live appointment viewing to Netflix.”
Adds Netflix CCO Bela Bajaria: “We are excited to have WWE Raw, with its huge and passionate multigenerational fan base, on Netflix,. By combining our reach, recommendations, and fandom with WWE, we’ll be able to deliver more joy and value for their audiences and our members. Raw is the best of sports entertainment, blending great characters and storytelling with live action 52 weeks a year and we’re thrilled to be in this long-term partnership with WWE.”
Monday Night Raw first launched 31 years ago and has aired more than 1,600 episodes to date. The weekly, three-hour show has helped launched the careers of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Triple H, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair.
For those keeping track at home, this is the third major WWE deal announced in four months. As previously reported, Friday Night SmackDown will leave Fox and return to USA Network in October. That same month, NXT will leave USA Network and move to The CW.
