Netflix secures massive deal to stream WWE Raw starting in 2025


WWE’s popular weekly show, WWE Raw, will be exclusively available on Netflix starting next year. The program has been broadcast on TV for 31 years, but TKO, the company formed after WWE merged with UFC, has announced that Raw will only be accessible through streaming from January. This deal will also allow viewers outside of the US to watch all weekly WWE shows and live events on Netflix, including pay-per-view specials like WrestleMania and SummerSlam. Initially, this change will affect fans in the US, Canada, UK, and Latin America, with plans to expand to other countries later. WWE Raw, known for its live broadcasts and 1,600 episodes, is a must-watch for wrestling fans keeping up with the latest storylines. The company claims that it attracts 17.5 million viewers each week in the US and has 1 billion followers across social media platforms. Nick Khan, WWE President, believes that Netflix is the perfect long-term home for Raw’s dedicated and growing fan base. Netflix has been asked to clarify if pay-per-view events will be included in the standard subscription price. In addition to this news, superstar wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson has joined TKO as a director and now owns The Rock trademark. This move has sparked rumors of a potential return to the wrestling ring after his surprise appearance on Raw earlier this month.
