Show history

On June 25, 2012, WWE and ION Television announced an agreement to create a new weekly, one-hour prime time series entitled WWE Main Event that debuted in October 2012.

Production/presentation

The show is presented from all broadcast syndication and Hulu Plus, prior to the Raw taping, after the cancellation of Superstars on November 28, 2016. WWE commentators Tom Phillips, Austin Aries and Byron Saxton are the broadcast team, and JoJo is the ring announcer. It uses the same HD set and the all-white ring ropes as all other WWE programming (though for the month of October 2012 and October 2013, the middle rope was pink, to promote WWE and Susan G. Komen for the Cure's breast cancer awareness campaign). From October 3, 2012 to January 22, 2014, "Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom)" by Shinedown served as the official theme for Main Event. Since January 29, 2014, "On My Own" by CFO$ now serves as the theme song.
