New “WWE Main Event” Show Launching In October

WWE is launching a new weekly one-hour show called “WWE Main Event” that will air Wednesday nights (8/7 central) on ION Television. In a press release sent out on Monday, WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon says:

“WWE looks forward to this new partnership with ION Television. We are excited about producing this new television show, WWE Main Event, and bringing our fans to ION Television every Wednesday.”

WWE Main Event debuts on October 3rd and will feature “a big arena experience with live audiences like current WWE weekly programs from both RAW and SmackDown.” There is no mention of the show featuring first-run programming, so it might be a highlights show.
