Well, apparently WWE won’t be carving out two hours on the USA Network every Wednesday night for NXT TV after all.
Even though WWE will be moving NXT TV to the USA Network in less than two weeks while also expanding the show from one to two hours, initially only the first hour will be broadcast live on the USA Network from 8 PM – 9 PM ET.
The second hour will – while also live – will be streamed exclusively on the WWE Network.
This schedule is expected for the first two weeks (9/18 and 9/25) before the full two-hour show begins airing live only on the USA Network (and on a 24-hour delay on the WWE Network).
The date for that would of course be October 2 – the same day that AEW launches on TNT.
For the first live show on 9/18, WWE has already announced Roderick Strong vs. Velveteen Dream for the NXT North American Championship and a Triple Threat featuring Mia Yim vs. Bianca Belair vs. Io Shirai with the winner becoming the top contender to Shayna Baszler’s WWE NXT Women’s Championship.
Here’s WWE’s statement on the matter:
The historic debut of WWE NXT on USA Network is fast approaching, and WWE.com has you covered with important details on how to catch all the action of the first two live episodes.
The episodes on Wednesday, Sept. 18 and Sept. 25, will air as follows:
* The first hour will air live on USA Network starting at 8/7 C
* The second hour will stream live on the award-winning WWE Network at 9/8 C. The second hour will then be immediately available for on-demand viewing on WWE Network.
Make sure to join us here at eWrestling.com on 9/18 for live NXT TV on USA Network & WWE Network results coverage!
