Spain has many WWE fans. They attend the events that the company holds each year in cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Malaga or A Coruña. And they also tune in every week the Neox channel, from Atresmedia, to enjoy the summaries of both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live with the comments of the always entertaining Héctor del Mar and Fernando Costilla. In addition, last year he joined the team of commentators Hard Alfredo, renowned football reporter.
All those fans are in luck because WWE has just reached a new agreement with Atresmedia to continue issuing its product in Spain. Starting next April 6, Mega will broadcast a two-hour version of Raw on Saturdays and will do the same with SmackDown on Sunday. Of course, the two programs will feature comments in Spanish of the names mentioned above.
Not only that, the programming will be completed with the This Week in WWE, which is the weekly summary of the episodes broadcast Monday and Tuesday, and the first four seasons of Total Fine. So fans of reality shows and WWE will have the opportunity to enjoy many stories about the private life of the Bella Twins, two of the most important fighters of the company.
How can it be read in the WWE statement on its official website, Luis León Luri, head of programming of thematic channels for Atresmedia Televisión, said this:
"We are truly pleased to continue our successful partnership with WWE. With this expanded line of content and programs we confirm our commitment to be the best home in Spain for one of the biggest entertainment brands in the world, WWE".
