WWE SmackDown Set For TV Bidding War?

Matthew Belloni

Hollywood Reporter Editorial Director Matthew Belloni posted information Wednesday indicating that Smackdown Live could be done on the USA Network, while Raw is sticking around at triple the price they're now making.

HollywoodReporter.com reports that NBCU is paying almost three times the current rate for Raw, but it will allow Smackdown to enter opening bidding.

NBCU and WWE declined to comment on the negotiations, which are still-ongoing.

This is mainly because NBCUniversal wants to only keep Raw which will be three times more expensive than the current deal.
