Why can't Smackdown be live every single week? What's the reason behind it being taped?

Maybe it's cheaper to have it taped?

Good grief yes, I need my wrestling spread out some. I don't read spoilers or look at posts about SD and feels live enough to me, especially since I don't care enough to snipe out every single crowd noise change.

KANE!!!!

Re: Why can't Smackdown be live every single week?

Probably because it's cheaper to tape it and because they don't want to have too much product back to back I guess?

"And that's the bottom line cause HBK 3:16 said so!"

I'd rather get it over with, personally. RAW is fresh in my head, and if they carry over a storyline from RAW to SD, I'm more inclined to tune in the next night.

Plus, it being live removes the shitty edits and piped in crowd.

GOING TO WRESTLEMANIA 31. Section C218, row 23, Seats 7-8!
WENT TO WRESTLEMANIA XXX! Section 156, row 15, seats 3-4!
WENT TO WRESTLEMANIA XXVIII! Section 122, row 26, seats 7-8.

Jackie Moore never did Playboy because she had enough nipple slips on live television to satisfy me for years LOL

Not Removing Until Victoria, Jackie Moore, Ivory, and Terri Runnels return and form the Cougar World Order. I'll wait.

I'm cool with Smackdown being taped if they stopped editing crowd noise

It's very expensive to run a live television broadcast weekly.

Re: Why can't Smackdown be live every single week?

Let's be honest here. No one would want to sit down to watch a 5 hour combined program all in 2 day course.
