    That's a little odd as to why SmackDown will be on a different media company, all together. I always thought WWE gave exclusive media rights to NBCU, but if SmackDown does move to Fox; I'd reckon it'd get higher ratings than RAW on USA.

    The ratilngs will much higher as you have to figure that not everyone has cable. This would be a good deal for the WWE

    Just feel like WWE like continuity and universality

    It's said that if the deal goes through, the only time a PPV will make more profit than a Raw show is if it's a big four. So if PPVs have already felt meaningless then I can't wait till they actually are.

    And it feels like SDL only got put on USA a few years ago, they can never keep a network. Just don't want them to back to SYFY.

    I don't think WWE will make the PPVs meaningless, I think they're going to try and get them to gain in value.

    I don't see WWE giving away a good or big match on a RAW, regardless if RAW would make more money.

    SmackDown is moving to Fridays on Fox in October 2019.

    The deal is reportedly worth $1 Billion, about $250+ mil a year. That's crazy money.
