When WWE Raw had a contract with the USA Network, the latter used to pay $240 Million per year. In 2023, reports suggested that the wrestling promotion is looking to increase its revenue, which its current network partner won’t be able to fulfill. However, Netflix, on the other hand, is a bigger business that agreed to pay WWE a handsome amount to let them stream their Monday night show on their streaming service.

While USA Network was paying $240 Million each year for WWE, Netflix has promised to increase the amount by 110%. As a result, WWE has struck a $5 Billion deal with the streaming giant for 10 years starting January 2025. This deal is promising for both Netflix and WWE because while the streaming giant gets a giant fanbase of wrestling lovers, WWE will be receiving the paycheck that they wanted.
