NXT Officially Moving To Tuesday Nights Starting April 13, WWE Extends Partnership With USA Network

WWE NXT Results

It’s official — NXT is moving to Tuesday nights.

WWE made the announcement this morning, confirming NXT will begin airing on Tuesday nights beginning on April 13. In addition, the announcement also came with the news that WWE and USA Network have agreed on a multi-year extension for the show, furthering WWE and USA’s nearly three decade-long relationship.

“We are incredibly proud of our three-decade partnership with WWE and in extending USA’s NXT deal, we are further establishing our portfolio as an unrivaled home for quality WWE content,” said Frances Berwick, Chairman, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal. “By transitioning NXT to a Tuesday timeslot where WWE has performed well in the past, we are giving our passionate fanbase more of what they love with back-to-back nights of exhilarating, live programming.”

“We are thrilled to continue WWE and NBCUniversal’s longstanding partnership with the extension of NXT on USA Network,” said Paul “Triple H® ” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Global Talent Strategy & Development. “The move to Tuesdays provides a new opportunity for us to grow the NXT brand and enables our partner, USA Network, to continue to build its strong portfolio of sports and entertainment programming.”

All new episodes will be available on demand in the United States exclusively on Peacock, the day after its airing on USA Network, and the show will continue to emanate from the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, Florida.

NXT began airing on USA Network in September 2019. The press release touted the show ranking among the top cable entertainment networks in its regular Wednesday timeslot, with an average weekly total of 847,000 viewers. WWE touted figures for previous special Tuesday episodes adding a nearly +30% boost among the key 18-49 and 25-54 demos.

The first announcement is that WWE is extending its deal with the USA Network. Details are currently scarce, but the move certainly makes sense considering the recent move by NBCUniversal (which owns the USA Network) to get the WWE Network on Peacock. The deal also includes NXT moving to Tuesday nights as well starting the week after WrestleMania 37. The report comes from

The Mat Men Podcast first reported NXT was moving to Tuesdays on March 2, with PWInsider.com later confirming WWE had started listing Tuesday NXT tapings in the production schedule starting with April 13.
