“USA Network and WWE have one of the longest and most successful partnerships in television history,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks – USA and SYFY. “As the #1 cable entertainment network, we’re excited to add NXT to our weekly lineup alongside powerhouse flagship Raw, and to bring a new generation of Superstars to a wide audience.”
According to WWE, the series will continue to emanate from Full Sail University in Orlando as part of WWE’s production partnership with the school.
NXT TakeOver events will continue to stream live exclusively on WWE Network.
