Sean Sapp is reporting that WWE will resume television tapings this coming Friday and will film continuously for a week. The first order of business will be to get tapings done for Smackdown which would air later in the day on FOX.

WWE plans to tape six episodes combined of Raw and Smackdown during the week while also doing multiple episodes of NXT at the nearby Full Sail University in Winter Park. With major sports events clearly not returning in front of an audience over the next couple of months, taping empty arena shows remains the only option to keep business going. Tomorrow’s NXT, featuring Gargano vs Ciampa and the women’s ladder match, was already filmed.



Florida remains under lockdown and WWE is not deemed as an essential business but the company has obviously obtained some kind of permission to go ahead with tapings over the next week.

Genuine question, what if a performer/worker for the company contracts the virus and actually dies? surely WWE cant risk that? It would be up there with Benoit for damage to the company

Would it really hurt for them to stop?, the company is already mega rich, all competitive sports have stopped, at least the ones i watch have, ie non American Football, Rugby, MMA and Boxing, plus the Olympics.

The product was bad before the COVID and right now its plain awful to watch.

Sean also reported they were thinking about setting up the taping schedule so that tonight's Smackdown & monday's Raw actaully go on LIVE! Guess we'll see which way they go on that...
