Explained: What Is The Meaning Of ‘Season Premiere’ In WWE

WWE is looking to revamp its entire landscape in terms of its storylines, match line-ups, and a new direction for its talented roster by announcing the season premiere of RAW and Smackdown on the September 30 edition of the blue brand just one week before its next premium live event, WWE Extreme Rules taking place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 8.

This can be seen as a new beginning for the WWE management at the height of the change in leadership and WWE Superstars looking to make their mark in the brand-new season.

The season premiere for Friday Night Smackdown will commence next week on October 14 with some interesting plans in place already.


The main event pair for WWE’s premium live event, WWE Crown Jewel taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 5, the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and internet sensation Logan Paul come face-to-face since their last encounter at a special press conference where the match was made official and the Celtic Warrior Sheamus set to collide with Gunther for the WWE Intercontinental Championship in their highly anticipated rematch from WWE Clash at the Castle that will surely be yet another 5-star classic showdown.

Whereas the flagship show of WWE, Monday Night RAW will witness the beginning of its new season just 4 days before Smackdown on October 10, one day after WWE Extreme Rules that is expected to be a massive edition for the red side with the 25th Anniversary reunion celebration of one of the greatest factions of all time, D-Generation with some of its key members expected to make their appearance along with the dominant stable, The Bloodline making their way to the red brand, Johnny Gargano set to face his former WAY faction member, Mr. Money in the Bank Austin Theory and the Almighty Bobby Lashley defending his WWE United States Title against the Drip God Seth Rollins.


As the WWE says goodbye to one season and looks forward to welcoming a new and progressive beginning, let us take a closer look at the meaning of ‘Season Premiere’ in the WWE:

What Should Fans Expect On WWE Season Premiere?

A season premiere in general is considered the first episode of a new season of a television show coming back on air after a hiatus. These season premieres are aired in the fall time or, the spring, or late winter for mid-season replacements in the United States whereas in other countries such as Australia and the UK, a season premiere can be televised at any given time of the year.

In context to the WWE which produces weekly entertainment shows and doesn’t go off the air in any situation, a season premiere means a change in the entire management operations such as fresh storylines, matches that have not taken place in the past season, the crowning of new champions and better and capitalizing opportunities for its WWE Superstars to ascend to the next level in terms of their respective careers with an effort to bring a more entertaining and quality driven WWE.
