Latest On Saturday Night’s Main Event & NXT Being Included In WWE’s Deal With FOX

There has been a lot of speculation about other programming airing on FOX following WWE’s latest television deal that will see SmackDown Live air on the network come October of next year.

There have been reports that Saturday Night’s Main Event might return to the network and that an announcement will come later this year. There have also been reports of NXT airing on FS1.

Dave Meltzer addressed the speculation during the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio where he noted that he was told by people in WWE and FOX that the story of adding Saturday Night’s Main Event is not true. The longtime pro wrestling journalist added that he was told that there would not be any “added wrestling programming.”

Regarding NXT to FS1, Meltzer added that he was told that there “was no chance.”

“I mean it’s possible,” Meltzer said (transcript courtesy of Wrestling Inc). “I could only ask, and people that I’ve asked said that there’s no announcements coming [and] there’s nothing new. I mean, is it possible a year from now? Absolutely. Does it make sense? It actually does. If it makes sense, I could see it happening, but I was told not right now.”
