With reporting from Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics
WWE is embarking on a television series for the Indian market, which POST Wrestling has been told is expected to begin filming in the new year.
Reporting alongside Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, we were told that the series is expected to begin filming in January, according to multiple sources.
While plans can always change, as of several weeks ago, they were planning to feature an eight-man single-elimination tournament for the new series.
The series, described as “NXT India”, is expected to air on linear television in India along with a digital window through the WWE Network.
WWE has a distribution deal in India with Sony Pictures Networks India Private Limited (SPN), a deal which was extended this past March with the announcement of a five-year renewal. The deal also includes SPN having the rights to the WWE Network for its audiences through their own OTT platform SonyLIV.
