A wealth of new programs will be added to both platforms this weekend. A new compilation is coming alongside three big indie shows. Plus, NXT Level Up will stream featuring a trio of exciting matches.

Just like last week, World Wrestling Entertainment isn’t officially listing a new episode of The SmackDown LowDown in the lineup, although the series is mentioned in the summary. Due to being left out of the listing, it won’t be featured in this article. However, the show may still air on Saturday as usual.

Below are seven shows coming to WWE Network and Peacock this weekend.

New episodes of SmackDown and Main Event will be added to the archives this weekend.

The programs are added each weekend along with an episode of RAW on Wednesdays. RAW and SmackDown are added only 30 days after airing due to television rights. The Main Event has a 2-to-3 delay due to a deal with Hulu.

On Saturday, September 17th, Main Event from August 29th will be available. The show was filmed prior to that night’s Monday Night RAW and features two big matches. The first bout saw R-Truth and Shelton Benjamin go at it and the second match featured Cedric Alexander and T-BAR colliding.

While NXT Level Up will stream immediately following Friday Night SmackDown on both platforms, it will not be available on Peacock after initially airing due to contractual obligations with Hulu. The series is later added following an almost three-week delay.
