A seismic shift in the way fans view the WWE will be taking place in the fall of 2019.
Beginning in October 2019, Fox will air World Wrestling Entertainment’s Smackdown brand. The show has been seen on USA Network January, 2016.
News of the deal, which was first signaled as being imminent last week, sent WWE shares up 12% to $57.57. Over the past week, they have risen more than 30%.
