WWE to run major events on Saturday nights going forward – EXCLUSIVE

Last updated

WWE are reportedly set to run their events on Saturday nights going forward, with the announcement of the Royal Rumble taking place on Saturday 29th January being the second ‘Premium Event’ beyond Day 1.

It was initially believed that WWE would be running just Day 1 as a Saturday event, due to the fact that the one-off event made sense due to the preferential date.

Aside from WrestleMania 38, which will be a two-night event, apparently, all major WWE events will be taking place on Saturday night going forward.

It is not confirmed currently who made the decision on the Saturday events, but it is likely that WWE President Nick Khan was a major element of the deal.

Khan was apparently working alongside Peacock back in 2021 to bring a Saturday event to the streaming service, and it looks as though it will be the norm going forward from now on.

Expect all major WWE events, aside from the aforementioned Night 2 of WrestleMania, to be taking place on a Saturday night going forward.

RAW is broadcast each and every Monday night, and fans in the United Kingdom can watch the show with a monthly BT Sport subscription.
