USA Network to pre-empt Raw and NXT for two weeks due to Winter Olympics

Monday Night Raw and NXT will be bumped from USA Network for two weeks due to USA Network airing the Winter Olympics.

NBC Universal has the rights for the Winter Olympics and will be broadcasting all events on NBC, CNBC, USA Network, and Peacock. With the closure of NBC Sports, all sports programming has shifted to USA Network.

According to the scheduled published by NBCOlympics.com, on Monday, February 7, USA will air Freestyle Skiing at 8:30PM while on Tuesday, February 8, they will show Figure Skating at 8:15PM. On Monday, February 14 it’s Figure Skating again at 8:15PM while on Tuesday, February 15 there will be Freestyle Skiing at 8:30PM.

Raw has not been bumped from its Monday night time slot ever since its first run on USA which ended in 2000. USA would pre-empt Raw for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and that show was moved to CNBC after Raw returned to USA in 2005.

While nothing has been announced, Raw and NXT are most likely going to switch to SyFy for those two weeks instead.
