WWE Raw, the pinnacle of professional wrestling entertainment, will make a historic move to Netflix, ending its 31-year run on traditional broadcast TV. The decision comes from TKO, the entity formed through the merger of WWE and UFC, solidifying Raw’s exclusivity on the streaming platform from January onwards.
Global fans outside the US will have access to all weekly WWE shows and live events, including pay-per-view extravaganzas like WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Royal Rumble. Initially impacting viewers in the USA, Canada, UK, and Latin America, this exclusive streaming deal will gradually extend to other regions.
WWE Raw, known for its live broadcasts and captivating storylines, has amassed a staggering 1,600 episodes since its inception, attracting 17.5 million weekly viewers in the US alone. With WWE’s immense social media presence boasting 1 billion followers, the move to Netflix aims to cater to its dedicated and expanding fan base.
Nick Khan, WWE President, expressed confidence in Netflix as the “ideal long-term home” for Raw, aligning with the streaming giant’s reputation as a global entertainment leader.
