Thomas Fenton Reports:
While WWE officially announced the new rights deal and relationship with Fox this week, one annoucment was not made as it is not yet finalized.
FOX and WWE are working on and finalizing bringing 2 more hours a week of content to FS1.
While there has been speculation of NXT moving their 1 hour programming to FS1 on Wednesday nights, that deal is not done. WWE is okay with NXT moving to FS1 however wanted to add and secure another weekly hour of first run wrestling to the WWE Network before a deal was finalized. One of these options for WWE was to have a 1 hour NXT UK show for the WWE network, however as of this week the company simply is not ready to produce the UK show each week for the network.
The other 60 minutes of programing weekly on FS1 would be a recap show for WWE.
