Several representatives from FOX Sports were in attendance at the Smackdown Live event in Los Angeles. It’s been rumored that FOX Sports could possibly pick up WWE programming once WWE’s deal with USA Network expires.
Colin Cowherd being in attendance surprised some fans since Cowherd has been outspoken about WWE in the past and even referred to WWE fans as “booger eaters” on Twitter.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted the following:
“It’s been noted that if UFC leaves FOX Sports, that they will make a play for WWE. And even if UFC doesn’t leave, it’s possible they could make a play for WWE which is the key for WWE getting a rates increase due to multiple bidders.”
