KXIP vs KKR Live Score

It was noted that SmackDown has been speculated to move to FOX.

A tweet from Matthew Belloni of The Hollywood Insider suggest that Raw will stay on the USA Network, but SmackDown Live is still up for grabs.

NBCU is said to be focusing on renewing the deal for RAW.

WWE's TV contract with NBC Universal was re-signed in 2014 and eventually lead to the USA Network becoming the exclusive channel for Raw and SmackDown Live broadcasts.

WWE's deal with USA / NBC expires on September 30, 2019, and they are now in an exclusive negotiating period with each other until the end of this spring.

McGregor recently rejected a contract extension at Hull City where he won Player of the Year for 2017/2018. McGregor played his youth football for the Scottish side before signing professional terms with the club.

For this latest cycle, early reports indicate that WWE's outlook could be very, very different.

Reportedly, NBCUniversal paid $30 million for the rights to Smackdown Live in 2010, but the deal in 2019 would have been way more expensive.

Fox this year inked a massive five-year, $550 million annual deal for rights to the NFL's Thursday Night Football as the broadcast network begins to focus on sports and news.

For the past few years now, NBCUniversal owned the rights to both WWE Raw and Smackdown Live. SmackDown started airing live in May 2016, increasing the value for advertising during the wrestling show. The show now garners the sixth-biggest audience among cable originals. Not only do they get to keep their long-standing relationship with NBC/USA, but they would also have the energy of another media conglomerate behind them in Fox. FOX is said to be among the networks interested in WWE programming so the show could land there. By airing on broadcast television every week, WWE could be motivated to stack SmackDown as much as possible.
