    Yep it is going on the main Fox channel from what I've read.

    Damn I can't believe they're actually going to put it on the main Fox!

    It's likely we'll just get the same old shit, but 3 hours long.


    It's insane that FOX really thinks this is what they need to boost ratings, or what have you. I would imagine there are at least some concessions that WWE will have to make... I hope.

    We gotta look at some bright side of FOX airing SmackDown Live in their Fall 2019 schedule. It clears any programming on Friday nights cause any show that airs on Friday night, are likely cancelled. For those who have doesn't have satellite or cable, or even internet, will still have an opportunity to watch the show on digital cable.

    I'm pissed that Lucifer, The Mick, The Exorcist and Gotham (after the fifth season in 2019) were cancelled to make way for the show.

    It will be nice as an Englishman to know there’s at least one weekly wrestling show I can watch live without fail because no work on Saturdays.

    For what its worth, I don't think it will go three hours due to local news on Fox affiliates.

    Good point about the news! Didn't think of that.

    I could definitely see Smackdown getting a B show to fill time though on a different night/day. Which isn't bad anyway with how stacked their roster is. Some guys could use it.

    I'm glad somebody pointed this out. So many people reacting to something that hasn't happened and isn't really all that likely to right now. A secondary show (a la Velocity) may be a thing, sure... but no one HAS to watch that.

    I'm trying to be optimistic about this whole thing on the creative side. Hopefully this financial security, added to the fact that Vince will be busy with the XFL, could see more interesting angles and pushes instead of the continued Reigns train chugging along whether anyone wants it or not.

    Only thing i'd want from this new deal is repeats being on the network a few days after the live shows.

    My biggest concern is $1 billion guaranteed over 5 years = no need to create added interest.

    I see this point a lot and I think it's super silly. Aside from the fact that it gives them the freedom to do more unique things, especially in terms of WWE Network content and tournaments, it's not like they can just coast on Fox and let ratings tank from where they're at.
