In this article, you will see what premiering programs/new stuff WWE has in store next week, whether it’s from USA, other TV channels/streaming services or the WWE Network live stream with a short description about what will happen. As source I use wwenetworknews.com, so I strongly advise you people to check that out as well. I’m doing this to give new/premiering stuff more visibility along with new announcements. Times will be posted with EST and GMT times so it will be easier for British/European viewers to see what time the shows will air.
Monday: Raw (USA Network/Sky Sports Main Event, 8 PM EST/1 AM GMT), Kurt Angle Exclusive Interview (Network, directly after Raw (11:06 EST/4:06 GMT)) and Table for Three (Network, 11:36 EST/4:36 GMT)
Raw will open with a segment of Dean Ambrose and will also include the reveal of Kurt Angle’s secret and Samoa Joe vs Roman Reigns as the main event where the winner will get an Universal Title Shot against Brock Lesnar at Summerslam. The camera’s of Raw will keep rolling for the Angle interview and Table for 3 will feature Ron Simmons, Mark Henry and The Godfather with a Nation of Domination theme.
Tuesday: SmackDown (USA Network/Sky Sports Main Event, 8 PM EST/1 AM GMT) and 205 Live (Network, 10 PM EST/3 AM GMT)
As of this writing, there is nothing announced for SmackDown yet, but 205 Live will look to end the feud between Mustafa Ali and “Mr No Fly Zone” Drew Gulak in a two-out-of-three falls match.
Wednesday: NXT (Network, 8 PM EST/1 AM GMT)
The yellow brand of the WWE will have two aspiring Womens Title challengers fight, Ember Moon vs Ruby Riot and a Number 1 Contenders match between two undefeated competitors, SAnitY’s Killian Dain and former IC Champion, Drew McIntyre.
Thursdays normally are dry days for WWE content, so I have nothing of note there
Friday: “Bash” PPV marathon (WWE Network, from 2 PM EST till 11 PM/7 PM GMT till 4 AM) and Main Event (Hulu, 7 PM EST)
The Bash PPV marathon will include WCW Great American Bashes from 1991 and 1995 and WWE’s The Bash 2009. Matches of Main Event are not known yet as they tape before Raw and aren’t announced beforehand.
Saturday: This Week in WWE (Network, 3 PM EST/8 PM GMT)
Apart from an exclusive segment with superstars doing something (Be it visiting a country or helping people out for example) there’s nothing of note happening on there.
Sunday: WWE Battleground PPV (Kickoff at 7 PM EST/12 AM GMT, PPV at 8 PM EST/1 AM GMT and Talking Smack at (estimated) 11 PM EST/4 AM GMT. Everything is on Network, although the Kickoff is available for free on other social media platforms too)
The PPV this Sunday will have the following matches: Jinder Mahal (c) vs Randy Orton in a Punjabi Prison match for the WWE Title, The Usos (c) vs The New Day for the SD Tag Titles, John Cena vs Rusev in a Flag match, Charlotte Flair vs Natalya vs Becky Lynch vs Tamina vs Lana in a Fatal-5-Way Elimination match for a shot against Naomi’s SD Womens Title at Summerslam, Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin and AJ Styles (c) vs Kevin Owens for the US Title. The Kickoff has no matches announced but will probably be announced at SmackDown. Talking Smack will only be on PPV’s because it has been cancelled as a weekly show.
A pretty stacked Monday I would say. (The rest feels pretty normal except for Tuesday, which is missing Talking Smack) The Bash PPV marathon listing could be good info for people who can only access the livestream portion of the Network (For example Canada) and of course Battleground as the biggest show on the Network this week. For on-demand content, WWE ECW and Old School MSG events have been added last week. If you have any comments, leave them down below.
