Sky has held the WWE rights exclusively since 1989, most recently signing a five-year deal in 2014. The speculation follows terrestrial broadcaster ITV’s recent confirmation that it agreed a deal to broadcast coverage of rival franchise All Elite Wrestling.

BT Sport declined to comment on the reports.
