Road Dogg – ‘The WWE-Netflix Deal Is Forward Movement, Forward Thinking’


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.

On a recent edition of his “Oh You Didn’t Know” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Brian “Road Dogg” James weighed in on WWE’s $5 billion deal with Netflix. He said,

“It’s growth. It’s forward movement. It’s forward-thinking. To me, yeah, it’s very eye-opening … To see how quickly, how meteoric, whatever this growth spurt is. Like, it’s exciting. It is exciting news.”

WWE’s deal with Netflix is worth $500 million annually and will span over ten years. This represents a significant increase compared to WWE’s previous deal with NBCU, valued at approximately $250-260 million per year.
