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) and Table for Three (Network, 11:06 EST/4:06 GMT)
Raw will include Kurt Angle resolving the Universal Championship situation and it’s future for SummerSlam, a rematch between Elias Samson and Finn Bálor, and a Number 1 Contenders match between Bayley and Sasha Banks where the winner challenges Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam. Right after Raw, the Network will air Table for Three with Corey Graves, Lita and Renee Young where they talk about literally anything (Description says “Renee Young, Corey Graves, and Lita dish on everything from career triumphs to their love of Pee-Wee Herman in a fun-filled Table for 3.”)
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 Battleground hasn’t happened yet as of this writing, SmackDown has nothing announced yet. 205Live, however, will feature a tag team match where Rich Swann and TJP face each other with tag team partners of their own choice.
Wednesday: NXT (Network, 8 PM EST/1 AM GMT)
Friends turn to bitter enemies when Kassius Ohno is stuck up with Hideo Itami’s actions for the past weeks and face each other. Also, the new number one contender, Drew McIntyre has some words for the NXT Champion.
Thursday: First Look (Network, 5 PM EST/10 PM GMT)
This week’s First Look episode will be about the upcoming Kurt Angle: The Essential Collection DVD that releases July 31st in the UK/Europe, August 1st in the US and September 27th in Australia.
Friday: Triple H Reterospective marathon (WWE Network, 3 PM EST/8 PM GMT) and Main Event (Hulu, 7 PM EST)
The Triple H Reterospective marathon will include the Thy Kingdom Come Beyond the Ring special, Starrcade 1994 (Triple H’s only WCW PPV), a RAW episode from October 21st, 1996 (His first title win in WWE) and the Royal Rumble event from 2016 (His latest WWE Title win). Main Event matches are always taped before Raw, so I cannot tell you what’s expected to happen.
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.
