Are you a fan of body slams, epic showdowns, and the captivating drama of professional wrestling? Get ready to rumble because Netflix is diving headlong into the sports entertainment arena with a game-changing partnership that’s sure to have fans on the edge of their seats.

The streaming giant, already making waves with gripping sports documentaries like the recent NFL star-studded ‘Quarterback,’ has upped the ante by entering a staggering multi-year deal, ringing in at a cool $5 billion, with none other than the WWE for the broadcasting rights of the wrestling behemoth’s flagship show—RAW.

Envision flipping on Netflix and finding RAW, not just for a season or two, but for an entire decade! That’s right, starting from January 2025, the next ten years of high-flying, smack-talking action will light up our screens, with Netflix becoming the new coliseum for wrestling warriors.

The thrill isn’t limited to just the USA; Netflix plans to unleash this adrenaline-pumped content first across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Latin America, with ambitions to expand even further globally.

But wait, there’s more! For wrestling aficionados outside the US, Netflix will be the one-stop venue for additional WWE spectacles such as Smackdown and NXT, which state-side fans catch on USA Network and The CW respectively. And we’re not talking just regular shows; the deal embraces the spectacular pay-per-view events that have defined WWE: think the Royal Rumble, Summerslam, Survivor Series, and the granddaddy of them all, Wrestlemania.

Imagine the excitement as wrestling legends and rising stars alike grapple for glory in your living room. As Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, Bela Bajaria, announced, “We are excited to bring WWE RAW, with its large and passionate multi-generational fan base, to Netflix.”

The sentiment is echoed by WWE president Nick Khan, who sees Netflix as the “ideal long-term home for RAW,” confident that the streaming giant’s reach and the WWE’s loyal fan base will create unstoppable momentum.

So what does this mean for you, the masked-man enthusiasts and diva devotees? It’s simple: more action, more spectacle, and more unforgettable moments, all available at the click of a button. Netflix and WWE are tag-teaming to transform your viewing experience, and the countdown to 2025 is on.
