As reported earlier, we will get to witness the annual Tribute to the Troops event on the USA Network. With that being said, it is time for the biggest pro-wrestling industry hosting the WWE week on the basic cable and satellite television owned by the NBC Universal Cable Entertainment Group.
In general, WWE hosts the two weekly shows on this channel. On Monday, we will witness the flagship program of WWE Raw, whereas, on Tuesday Night, Smackdown Live comes on air. Both of these shows are the live-format shows. These two are number one and two longest running weekly episodic television shows in the television history, as well.
Next week, there will be two additional shows even after Tuesday Nights. WWE NXT will be aired on the USA Network on Wednesday night, whereas, the 15th annual Tribute to the Troops event will take place on Thursday night which means, there will be non-stop WWE actions to entertain the fans.
The most patriotic show of the year is hosted in non-live format. It has already been taped from the military base in San Diego, California, yesterday night which will get broadcasted, next week. Both Raw and Smackdown superstars will be attending the show.
