WWE has been in negotiations for months now as the future of Raw remained uncertain but now fans know exactly where to find the show in 2025.
Questions remained over the future of WWE’s flagship show Monday Night Raw but now fans have their answer as the company has revealed Raw is heading to Netflix beginning in January 2025.
The deal encompasses the USA, Canada, the UK, and Latin America meaning fans in those territories will need to subscribe to Netflix to watch all the action on Raw. The announcement also notes that other unnamed territories and countries will see Raw move to Netflix over time.
The move also has major implications for fans outside the US in regards to other WWE programming which could signal the end of the WWE Network as we know it:
Netflix will also become the home for all WWE shows and specials outside the U.S. as available, inclusive of Raw and WWE’s other weekly shows – SmackDown and NXT – as well as the company’s Premium Live Events, including WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Royal Rumble. WWE’s award-winning documentaries, original series and forthcoming projects will also be available on Netflix internationally beginning in 2025.
WWE Raw is coming to Netflix!

WWE Network Could Be At An End With Netflix Deal
The WWE Network has remained as it started outside the US with fans in the United States watching events on the Peacock streaming service.
TKO’s President and COO Mark Shapiro has touted the deal as transformative for both WWE and Netflix:
This deal is transformative. It marries the can’t-miss WWE product with Netflix’s extraordinary global reach and locks in significant and predictable economics for many years. Our partnership fundamentally alters and strengthens the media landscape, dramatically expands the reach of WWE, and brings weekly live appointment viewing to Netflix.
In a major day for WWE news, The Rock has been appointed to TKO Group’s Board of Directors ahead of a possible match for him at WrestleMania 40.
