WWE Raw Tipped For Amazon Streaming Move

WWE Raw's media rights remain up for grabs as competition heats up.

WWE Raw Amazon

The Sports Business Journal's John Ourand has predicted Amazon will acquire the rights to air WWE Raw as speculation on the pro wrestling flagship's future intensifies.

Wrote Ourand as part of his 2024 projections piece:

Amazon picks up “WWE Raw” rights
Amazon gets “WWE Raw” rights and keeps the series on Monday nights. This hits an audience of young males, a demo where Amazon believes it sees growth in Prime subscriptions. Plus, it gives the company another night of live programming on Prime Video.

Elsewhere, Ourand also pitched a scenario that would see Disney strike a deal for the UFC and WWE Raw's television rights with TKO Group, carrying both on its cable channel, FX. Ourand wrote that such a scenario could materialise "if WWE is unable to find enough money from 'Raw' suitors."


Raw currently airs on USA Network every Monday. The station's parent company, NBCUniversal, has already acquired the rights to SmackDown from October 2024 in a deal believed to be worth around $1.4 billion.

2024 could bring major changes to the televised wrestling landscape, with AEW's Dynamite rights also up for grabs before the end of the year.
