SmackDown highlights will air every Saturday at 10:30am, and Raw highlights will air at 10:30am each Sunday.

Both shows will also be available online via Channel 5’s online streaming service My5, as well as full seasons of WWE network shows Total Divas and Miz & Mrs.

James Tatam, VP Commercial, Digital and Operations, Channel 5, said: “WWE has strong appeal throughout the UK and across generations so we’re very excited to be bringing their high-quality entertainment to an even bigger free-to-air audience in the UK.”

It is the first time WWE highlights will be shown on free-to-air British TV since Channel 4 coverage ended after two years in 2001.
