In a recent interview with Variety, The CW President Dennis Miller discussed several topics, including why WWE NXT was a fit for the Network, with the show to remain on Tuesday nights at 8pm Eastern.

“We knew that RAW and SmackDown were a little bit beyond our budget here.

If you look, we have a lot of sports where we have kind of that next tier moving into first tier here, whether it’s the Xfinity races leading into the Cup, or it’s NXT leading into RAW and SmackDown, so it just started to fit.

Then, over the course of a couple of months, we went back and forth and got the deal done.”
