More WWE programming coming to FOX in Fall 2019

FOX Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier told the press at the Television Critics Association event that the network will have more wrestling programming once Smackdown moves to its property in October of this year.

Calling WWE “great storytellers” that fits beautifully in what they are doing, Collier said to expect more WWE-related programming across their multiple platforms.

“The FOX Sports networks, FS1, and others will have some other wrestling. Not live Smackdown, not Raw, but other ties to the WWE world,” Collier said.

He stopped short of mentioning what kind of programming will be added but when UFC was part of the FOX world, UFC programming dominated the sports channels so it could be that something similar is being done for WWE.

NXT is also rumored to be jumping to FS1 in the future.

WWE and FOX signed a five-year deal for Smackdown worth just over $1 billion. Smackdown will move to Friday nights in October and will remain live.
