Nah - the current Fox/Disney deal is for everything but the Fox broadcasting side (Fox, Fox News, FS1, etc.). Same thing would be true of a Comcast/Fox deal. That's actually part of the reason for Fox going w/ WWE - they're going basically all in on reality, sports, etc. and severely limiting their scripted series, now that they won't have a production arm anymore. 

The current deal doesn't include Fox News, the Fox broadcast network or FS1/FS2. It does include the regional sports networks.

 

So if the Fox deal works out to average $200 million for SD, and USA is paying the alleged "three times more" for Raw that would put it at around $240. $440 total for just the domestic TV rights is bonkers considering all the analyst types were pegging the renewal for the whole package at around $250-$300 max. 

 

Whoever negotiated that deal needs to be the headliner in next year's HOF class for real. 

That would be Ari Emanuel, who Ari from Entourage is based on.
