The CW Network has confirmed when NXT will air in its fall schedule.

In November 2023, it was announced that NXT will move to The CW Network in October 2024. The five-year deal is said to be worth “more than double” the $15 million WWE received for its current deal with the USA Network.

At the time of the announcement, Lash Legend hailed the move to The CW Network, saying everyone in NXT was looking forward to it.

While it wasn’t confirmed in the initial announcement, it was speculated that the plan was for the developmental brand to continue airing on Tuesday nights, and now the network has confirmed this with the release of their fall schedule.

NXT Will Continue Airing Live On Tuesday Nights

In a press release announcing the new line-up, The CW touted NXT alongside the addition of sports including the NASCAR XFINITY SERIES and Pac-12 football. According to the network, an impressive 90% of the stars seen at WrestleMania 40 were “developed under the NXT banner.”


Launched by WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE NXT has aired weekly since 2012 and features the brightest young talent in sports entertainment. Nearly 90% of the participants in last year’s WrestleMania were developed under the NXT banner. Led by WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, NXT is popular with younger audiences, ranking No. 1 in cable primetime on Tuesday nights among Adults 18-49 and 18-34. WWE Superstars such as Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch have come up through NXT.”
