Wrestling Observer Live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Sempervive is back today with tons to talk about.

We start off with talk with official news that UFC is leaving FOX for ESPN in 2019, moving everything barring pay-per-view events to their new home. There is also talk on SmackDown possibly going to Fox, with the idea being now that they’re getting so much money, everything should be building towards the television.

After the break, there’s talk and discussion on Best of the Super Juniors, who would be the A show between Raw and SmackDown going forward, Io Shirai, Seth Rollins, WWE not releasing talent due to All In, Would Fox want Raw if the opportunity came and matches for the first round of the WWE UK tournament. 

The last segment has news and notes including a SmackDown preview for next week, the stipulation for AJ and Nakamura, Miz and Mrs., would WWE be afraid to put the title on Nakamura, Lana in Money in the Bank, more on Bryan wrestling for Black Label Pro and more.
