WWE To Face Stiff Competition From The NFL On Monday Nights


WWE is set to face stronger competition on Monday nights.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, ABC will air the entire season of Monday Night Football, with ten additional games coming to the network.


This essentially means that WWE will henceforth face stronger competition on Monday nights than when the games were solely on ESPN.

ABC obviously has a wider reach than ESPN and NFL games will be simulcast on both networks this season.

The decision was made as the broadcast networks attempted to program a fall schedule in the wake of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

The season opener on September 11, which aired on ABC, ESPN, and ESPN2, had the largest audience ever since the NFL moved to cable.

ABC will air one of two NFL games tonight, next week, as well as December 11.

The broadcast giant will also simulcast games on November 20 and December 25.
