Welcome to your new home! There have been a lot of changes to WWE in recent months with some of the most important involving the future of their television homes. This includes a new television deal for SmackDown, but Monday Night Raw and NXT have not yet announced their new homes. That was the case until this week, and now we have another new deal announced.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: They’re Into Him: WWE Backstage Officials Reportedly Impressed With Monday Night Raw Star

WWE has announced that NXT will be moving to the CW next October with a new five year deal. This will mark the first time that the show will be airing on a broadcast network as opposed to cable. According to the TKO earning call, the new deal will see a 70% increase in the broadcasting rights fees. There is no word on if this will affect the rumored (though not yet officially announced) NWA deal with the network.

NXT has been doing well as of late. Check out some of their recent efforts:

Opinion: That is quite the move for NXT, as the CW is a broadcast network rather than cable. While it’s not quite the same as SmackDown landing on FOX, this is hardly some nothing accomplishment. What matters most is that WWE is getting a big fat increase for their broadcasting rights as the company continues to make money hand over fist. I’m curious to see what Monday Night Raw gets, but for now, this is quite impressive.

What do you think of the deal? What do you think might change about NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
