The exclusivity ends today...
- WWE's exclusive negotiating window with Comcast to sign a new deal ends today and no deal is believed to have been officially set yet. As previously reported, the company timed their contracts so that all of their series--Raw, Smackdown, Total Divas and Main Event--would end at the same time, putting them all as part of the negotiations and making it a giant package. The company has reportedly been in contact with other companies including A&E, Disney, Viacom, 21st Century Fox and Discovery about a potential deal.
Should WWE not agree with Comcast's final offer, the company will still have the chance to match any outside offers as previously reported. WWE will announce their new deal in April or May, with any potential move of their programming happening in early October.
