It is unknown whether it will air live or move from its home at Full Sail University.

The official announcement of NXT's move from the WWE Network to the USA Network is rumored to happen this Monday on RAW.

Meltzer further elaborated on the apparent FOX perspective on the matter, saying, "Now all of a sudden WWE has made it so that FOX is not the WWE channel - U.S. is".

After being long tied for months to FS1, it now appears that NXT will be moving to USA. In fact, many professional wrestling fans and journalists prefer NXT the weekly WWE product.

The NXT fanbase, actually, is very much the segment of pro-wrestling fans that would be inclined to tune in AEW, as WWE is well-aware, and that's why WWE is pushing the head-to-head competition, to try to deflate AEW as it comes out of the gate.

It's also being reported that some people in WWE believe that NXT on U.S. is a done deal, and it's only a matter of time before it's announced, while others are saying that a deal is not close to done.

WWE has announced a "major" announcement for Raw this Monday so one would tend to think this would be it. This could be the kickoff to the WWE vs. AEW Wednesday Night War as this is the same night that AEW will begin airing live from 8-10pm ET on TNT.
