According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there is new speculation that WWE could be moving from NBC Universal to FOX for their next TV deal
-
Paul Levesque had a preliminary meeting with the heads of FOX Sports
-
The speculation is that if FOX doesn’t sign UFC, and UFC moves to another network, that they would go after WWE because they would have so much air time to fill on FS 1 and FS 2, which relies heavily on UFC
-
There is also speculation that FOX may want to buy WWE, so that they won’t have to worry about escalating television rights and losing them in the future
-
They were interested in doing this with UFC before the price ballooned
-
With FOX/Disney deal happening, they are cash rich right now
-
Word is that McMahon isn’t interested in selling his majority interest just yet, because the feeling that the stock will soar because they will get a big increase in television rights
-
If the shares hit $40, Vince could continue to do what he’s doing, and sell small pieces of it off while maintaining full voting control
-
If there’s a UFC level offer ($3.5 billion or more), most feel McMahon would be inclined to sell
-
If WWE moves to FOX, the talk is that Raw would air on main FOX, and that the show would be cut back to two hours (8-10PM ET), due to FOX stations airing news programming at 10PM
-
Smackdown would air on FS1, and the feeling is that FOX would try and get more content to fill time on FS 1 and FS 2 since UFC fills so many hours

Christy St. Cloud asks Johnny Gargano about his mindset heading to Philly. Velveteen Dream interrupts and says "say it." This time not his name, but "thank you" for the opportunity by him being out of action. Dream says Gargano got lucky by beating a "guy" in Ohno since he doesn't look like a superstar and that he could have easily beaten Ohno. Dream says Gargano doesn't deserve his spot.
