Yes, that’s one of two options the WWE under consideration with the other outlet being My Network TV. If the WWE goes with with WGN Superstation, most Chicagoans would not have access to the show, since the cable version of WGN is only carried on satellite (Direct TV and Dish Network) and not on any cable systems, unless the WWE can strike a deal with WGN locally.
Two weeks ago, CW canceled Smackdown after a nine-season run which started on predecessor UPN in August 1999.
Meanwhile, if Smackdown goes to My Network TV, some areas won’t get the show, either. On the other hand, it would bring wrestling back to the stations that carried it when they were UPN affiliates.
