According to The Hollywood Reporter, WWE RAW will most likely be staying on the USA Network and NBCUniversal is reportedly close to renewing a deal for RAW at three times its current value.

As for SmackDown, WWE is reportedly shopping it around to other networks after NBCUniversal declined to renew the deal for the show. It was noted that SmackDown has been speculated to move to FOX. NBCUniversal had paid $30 million for the SmackDown franchise in 2010. WWE and NBCUniversal both declined on making a comment on the negotiations, which are still underway.

WWE's current deal with NBCUniversal expires on September 30, 2019. They had publicly stated that they plan to announce their U.S. distribution plans by September. WWE's current contract with NBCUniversal reportedly generated $180 million last year.
