WWE SmackDown Strikes Back with $1.4 Billion USA Network Deal

WWWE’s popular wrestling show, Smackdown, is making a massive comeback to NBCUniversal’s USA Network with a new deal worth more than $1.4 billion.

The deal includes the rights to broadcast Smackdown Live between now and September 2024. This is the second multi-year deal between NBCUniversal and WWE. The first multi-year deal began in October 2019 and concludes next month when the network’s rights agreement expires.

The new deal will bring Smackdown Live to a bigger audience, allowing for more fans to experience the exciting action that this popular show provides.

USA Network is the American home to WWE programming so it makes perfect sense that the new deal would take place here. It’s expected that the show will remain on the USA Network and run for a minimum of 72 episodes per year.

WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon discussed the long-term partnership saying, “This new and expanded agreement is a testament to the power of WWE and USA Network, and reinforces the strength of our partnership. USA Network has been the home of SmackDown for 20 years and we are thrilled to continue our collaboration.”

The newly signed deal between WWE and USA Network is great news for professional wrestling fans. Not only will be able to watch more of their favorite show on the USA Network, but this also means that WWE itself will benefit financially from the large deal.

All in all, it’s good news that World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and USA Network have agreed a new deal worth more than $1.4 billion. This new agreement will provide more Smackdown Live episodes for viewers and further solidify the relationship between WWE and USA Network.
