Major Sports Network Interested in WWE Deal?
Sporting News are reporting that Fox is lining up a potential deal with the WWE. The move would, reportedly, see Monday Night Raw leave its longtime home, The USA Network, and move to Fox Sports.
This would be seen a major deal for the WWE, with Fox Sports being broadcast in a lot more homes than the USA Network. It could be a huge boost to WWE ratings, which have struggled in recent years. Fox officials were reportedly on the front row of this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw.
Inter-Promotional Show Announced for Wrestlemania Weekend
New Orleans will be the home of wrestling this April, with Wrestlemania 34 taking place in the city on Sunday, April 8th. Wrestling fans will no longer just have the WWE to watch that weekend, though, with Impact Wrestling announcing they will broadcasting a three-day event with Lucha Underground starting on Friday, April 6th. The event is not likely to have much of an impact on Wrestlemania, but it is a smart move from the companies to grab some attention with the whole wrestling world watching.
