Nick Khan & Mark Shapiro Say Netflix Deal Will Make WWE A Global Localized Product



WWE Monday Night RAW will be airing on Netflix starting in January 2025. This will be the first time RAW will not air new episodes on a traditional television network.

During the TKO Q4 earnings call, WWE President Nick Khan and TKO CEO Mark Shapiro discussed how WWE’s deal with Netflix helps them create a more “global localized product.”

You can check out some highlights from the earnings call below:

Khan on the Netflix deal helping their global goals: “For us, a global localized product has always been a priority. We think Netflix helps us with that. If you look at the premium live event schedule for this calendar year; Perth, Australia this past weekend. Berlin, France, Riyadh, Canada, all over the world. Look for, down the road, more local stars from those markets as we expand our tryouts to international markets so we feel confident over time that will be covered and be part of the Netflix deal.”

Shapiro on the deal allowing them to create content elsewhere: “Our Netflix deal doesn’t preclude us from creating new content and events and programming on a global basis. We just have some first look rights that they would have a window to essentially evaluate. NXT, across the board, we have an opportunity to create all new material, sell it for an incremental rights fee, but they are going to be first in line to pay that rights fee.”
