NBCU Looks To Sweeten WWE TV Deal With HOF At Universal Studios
NBCUniversal is "thinking about creating a Hall of Fame" for WWE at its Universal Studios theme park in Orlando. This comes as NBCU is "looking to retain rights to WWE's popular 'Smackdown' and 'Raw' programs on its SyFy and USA channels." Sources said that no "concrete offer has been made," but NBCU execs "have talked about such a deal sweetener." NBCU's exclusive negotiation period reportedly ends on Feb. 1 (N.Y. POST, 1/25).
