It looks like Fox will be all in with WWE programming. SmackDown Live begins on FOX on October 4 and the studio show is believed to be starting sometime in October on Tuesday nights on FS1. WWE is also in talks to bring NXT to FS1. If a deal can be made then NXT would go head-to-head with All Elite Wrestling’s show on TNT, which is believed to be slotted for Wednesday night’s from 8-10 pm.
