Another Update on Raw/SD! on the Network

In an update on Raw and Smackdown airing on the WWE Network, WWE will now be adding new episodes of the shows to the Network on a thirty day delay from the when the shows air.

This new format likely has to do with the new TV deal WWE just signed with NBCUniversal.

Latest on Kevin Steen/Willie Mack to WWE

As things currently stand, former Ring of Honor stars Willie Mack and Kevin Steen are reportedly in the background check phase with WWE, which would indicate that both will be offered a contract.

The process generally starts with WWE doing a background check, then proceeding with medical testing, and if all that clears, talents are then officially offered a deal.
