WWE possibly joining ‘The Walking Dead’ on the AMC Network

The WWE is currently negotiating with television networks to make the new home for both “WWE Monday Night Raw” and “WWE Smackdown.” According to PWS on March 12, the WWE said they should announce a new TV deal by the end of April or early May.

The biggest names competing for the WWE contracts are AMC Networks, Time Warner, Viacom and 21st Century Fox. Of course, Universal has the chance to match any offer to keep the WWE on their USA Network.

The most interesting name on this list is AMC. They are already a Top 5 cable network thanks to the success of shows like “The Walking Dead,” “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad.” However, they are looking for something to help pick up the slack of both “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” ending and the WWE could push them to the top as the highest ranked cable network.

Viacom would be for Spike TV and that could mark the end of TNA Impact Wrestling’s television deal and would pair the WWE up on the same network as Bellator MMA. Time Warner would also be interesting, because that would mean a move to TBS or TNT, both networks that aired WCW Wrestling.

The final option is Fox, which would see WWE air on FOX Sports 1 along with the UFC.
