Netflix will broadcast WWE Raw in 2025

WWE announced that WWE Raw will be broadcasted on Netflix in the United States, Canada, Latin America and United Kingdom, starting on January 2025. This is a huge announcement, because for the first time since the creation of the show in January 1993, Monday Night Raw won’t be on linear television. It also ends a long-term partnership between WWE and the USA Network. According to CNBC, the agreement is a 10-year deal valued at more than $5 billion. Netflix have 77M subscribers in the United States and Canada, which means WWE could win big with that new partnership. The announcement also ends a period of speculations surrounding the next broadcaster of the main WWE weekly show, as Amazon Prime, Disney and Warner Bros. Discovery were some possibilities to take the spot.

Triple H addressed the news on social media, tweeting : “This partnership is one that will break new ground, and take WWE to new heights. Thrilled to bring WWE Raw to Netflix, coming January 2025. Now we change the game!!!!”.

The offer could potentially evolve and other countries could possibly be involved in the deal.
