Last year featured the cable debut of NXT. The Wednesday night offering on this year’s USA Network WWE Holiday Week isn’t quite as historic. In fact, it sounds like a clip show of highlights from Raw, SmackDown and other events from the year which was. But it will be hosted by The New Day, and there will be pancakes, so...
Here’s the official rundown of programming for the 2018 (and possibly final, depending on how NBCUniversal’s new deal for Raw works, and if it includes the annual Tribute To The Troops special) edition of WWE Holiday Week:
Monday, Dec. 17 - The week begins with three hours of everyone’s favorite, Monday Night Raw, at 8/7 C, featuring WWE Superstars Ronda Rousey, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Dolph Ziggler and more in Sacramento, Calif., at the Golden 1 Center.
Tuesday, Dec. 18 - The week continues with SmackDown LIVE, which will take place in Fresno, Calif., at the Save Mart Center at 8/7 C, with WWE Superstars Daniel Bryan, The New Day, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Jeff Hardy, Asuka and more.
Wednesday, Dec. 19 - At 10/9 C, USA introduces a brand-new WWE special, New Day’s WWE 2018 Pancake Powered New Year Super Spectacular. The New Day host a fun look back at all the historic, outrageous and unforgettable moments that made 2018 so super spectacular at WWE.
