I'm fairly sure ITV have signed a deal for AEW by now so WWE can't reach out to them. What BT sport get with this is a ton of live tv and all the other shows as well which will fill out their channels throughout the day. For Sky sports yet more rights they've lost which is becoming a downward trend whilst their prices are trending up still....

Any news on Serie A rights in the UK? I hope premier sports don't keep it

It's La Liga that they (and ITV4) had the temporary rights for.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

In the UK WWE is Sport - in the US it is Sports Entertainment.

WWE is really struggling for an audiance at present - their last PPV could only attract an in-house audience of less than 6000 and it seems nearly half those were given tickets to make up the numbers. Areas of the area had screens put up to hide the empty seats.

AEW on the otherhand sold out their August PPV in 15 minutes.

I wouldn't be surprised if Sky decided "this just isn't worth the money anymore". Raw and Smackdown are the flagship shows and those watching have a very good idea how each part will end up as they have no decent script writers.

It looks like ITV are the winner out of the last Pro Wrestling deals.

I think with WWE you get a ton of shows to fill your many channels. That was the benefit of having wwe.

- raw which you can repeat throughout the week
- smackdown
- main event
- specials
- weekly reviews
- catch up and on demand

Its a lot of programming and sky have lost an awful lot recently. Will they have enough stuff to fill up all their channels? The other good thing about wwe is it had no off season unlike majority of sky sports programming.

I'm not sure if ITV have landed gold with AEW. The ppv last night was a bit of a mess which i'm not sure will connect with the casual viewer. Also lots of empty seats at the AEW event even though they stated they had sold out. Bit concerning they couldnt fill up the arena for their second ever show. Think its a bit too early to big up AEW at this point

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

I understand the current audiance for the live Monday night show in the US is just over 2million.

BBC/ITV would be disappointed with that in the UK for a live prime time show.

Too much programming - too little script variation.

Sport doesn't have script writers, hence wrestling should never be described as sport it should be entertainment
