WWE pushes presence in Germany through new deal

MUMBAI: Sports entertainment company WWE and German commercial television channel Tele 5 have announced a multi-year deal to bring WWE’s flagship programme, ‘Monday Night Raw’, back to free television in Germany.

Starting 10 April, WWE fans will be able to see the two-hour version of ‘Monday Night Raw’ every Thursday at 10.15 pm on Tele 5.

WWE combines compelling storylines with an exciting mix of in-ring action, featuring WWE superstars John Cena, Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio, Daniel Bryan and many more. In the United States, ‘Monday Night Raw’ is the longest-running, weekly episodic programme in primetime TV history and it is also one of the most-watched programmes on cable.

Tele 5 CEO Kai Blasberg said, “‘Monday Night Raw’ is a phenomenal television event that fascinates people all over the world. Now Tele 5 is bringing this highlight of the entertainment industry back to the German public TV audience.”

WWE Germany GM Stefan Kastenmueller said, “WWE is thrilled to partner with Tele 5 to bring our family-friendly brand of entertainment to free TV, making it more accessible to our German fans. Our local team will be supporting this launch with multi-platform activities to bring the very best of all of our lines of business to the German market including live events, PPV, consumer products and digital services.”
