WWE has announced a brand new weekly one-hour original series “WWE Main Event” to air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on ION Television.
The show will debut on October 3rd, 2012 and according to the press release, will feature a mix of WWE Superstars and Divas from rosters on both WWE Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown.
From the sounds of things then the show will be like a mini Saturday night’s Main Event or an extension of Raw and Smackdown but running just sixty minutes and but instead it will air on Wednesday nights. Hopefully this will mean some pay-per-view style matches on weekly television featuring the A-level guys from the company and with the extra two hours of WWE television from the three hour Raws and the new WWE Main Event, it will mean more younger guys in the company being pushed.
The press release states;
WWE Main Event will feature in-ring action and fit seamlessly in storylines from Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown, making Wednesday night appointment viewing for fans. The new series will offer a big arena experience with live audiences like current WWE weekly programs.
