Variety has an article up noting that the current TV rights deal between WWE and NBC Universal to keep WWE programming on the USA Network, Syfy and the E! Network is very close to being done and should be completed shortly. The hold up has to do with digital rights including the delay in which episodes of RAW and Smackdown will be featured on the WWE Network. WWE Divas The Bella Twins are scheduled to appear at NBC Universal’s cable upfronts presentation for their fall 2014 programming this afternoon in New York City.
