The destinies of WWE Superstars will be determined during a two-night WWE Draft taking place live on Friday Night SmackDown Live on October 11 on FOX and RAW on October 14 on USA Network.

On both nights of the Draft, Superstars from Raw and SmackDown will appear along with personalities from FOX and NBC Universal programming to announce select picks that will determine the rosters of each distinct brand.

This announcement from WWE was pretty much expected as SmackDown Live moves to FOX beginning Friday, October 4 while RAW will continue airing on USA Network. The draft will take place one week after SmackDown on FOX Premiere episode from Staples Center in Los Angeles, also set to be the 20th-anniversary celebration show.

According to the WWE Network schedule, the weekly WWE NXT TV episodes will air on the WWE Network at 10 pm ET each Thursday night (3 AM BST the next day), instead of 8 pm. The full two-hour episode will premiere on USA Network on the WWE Network at 10 pm ET the next night, Thursday. 

The two-hour episode will air live each Wednesday night, beginning this September 18. The September 18 and 25 episodes will see the first-hour air on the USA Network while the second hour airs on the WWE Network, but both hours will air on USA beginning with the October 2 episode. Four matches for this NXT on USA premiere have been announced, check here
