WWE NXT will continue airing on Tuesdays following its transition to The CW

WWE NXT will stay on Tuesday nights when it moves to The CW this fall and continue to air in its usual 8-10 p.m. Eastern time slot.

WWE announced a five-year deal with The CW, starting in October 2023. This move is part of The CW’s strategy to expand its live sports offerings.

“We’ll also have more live sports than ever before with the addition of WWE NXT, the NASCAR XFINITY SERIES and Pac-12 football alongside second seasons of LIV Golf, INSIDE THE NFL, ACC football and ACC basketball,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment at The CW. “Anchored by 500 hours of sports in 2025, we continue to get bigger and broader while reaching and growing our audience across broadcast, streaming and local.”

NXT is transitioning from USA Network, where it has aired since 2019. While USA Network is losing both NXT and WWE Raw, SmackDown will return to USA in September, and Raw will move to Netflix in January 2025.
