It has long been rumoured, but WWE’s black and gold brand will be moving to Tuesday nights after WrestleMania.
NXT’s first show on a Tuesday is 13th April, and has been announced along with a new multi-year deal with USA Network.
WWE Executive Vice President, Global Talent Strategy & Development Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque has commented on the announcement.
We are thrilled to continue WWE and NBCUniversal’s longstanding partnership with the extension of NXT on USA Network. The move to Tuesdays provides a new opportunity for us to grow the NXT brand and enables our partner, USA Network, to continue to build its strong portfolio of sports and entertainment programming.
This now confirms that WrestleMania week will be a solid nine days of WWE action, and also that between WWE, NXT, AEW and Impact Wrestling (which has announced a move to Thursday nights) every weekday is covered.
