During Thursday’s WrestleMania XL kickoff event, it was announced that WWE was launching a new program on X.
WWE Speed is set to premiere this spring on the social platform featuring fast-paced matches with a maximum duration of five minutes.
The Hollywood Reporter shared additional details that the program will be broadcast weekly.

Last December, WWE taped several matches for the project before a live edition of Friday Night SmackDown and featured a countdown clock for the fans to follow along with.
