With the big news coming Tuesday morning that WWE is taking its Raw talents to Netflix beginning in 2025, I welcomed New York Post sports media reporter Ryan Glasspiegel on Josh Nason’s Punch-Out to talk all about the big news.
In our 20+ minute discussion, we talked about the deal that will see Raw head to Netflix worldwide in addition to international rights for WWE PLEs, SmackDown and NXT, and other WWE programming associated with WWE Network.
We talk about some of the big questions that go along with the news like what night of the week WWE content will fall on, and if Netflix is the front-runner for the domestic WWE Network/PLE rights currently held by NBCUniversal.
There’s also the spillover effect for AEW whose rights are up at the end of this year. Does this mean WBD is the odds-on favorite by default and will Tony Khan take his properties out for bid?
We cover all that, plus Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joining the TKO Board of Directors, on this relatively breaking news edition of JNPO.
