Latest on plans for taping schedule through WWE SummerSlam

It was reported last week that WWE had put together its internal taping schedule through next month that will get them up to SummerSlam.

Dave Meltzer provided additional details about the schedule in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

WWE is not doing any tapings out of order. Meltzer brought up the example that they could save time and do tapings before SummerSlam for episodes of Raw and SmackDown that would air after the pay-per-view event, but WWE doesn’t want to “risk it.”

“With the nature of closed sets, the spoilers aspect isn’t even an issue but the reality is they can’t trust themselves for carry out plans without the ability to change their minds prior to a PPV show.”

Meltzer stated that aside from the exception of August 17th, WWE will keep all of the crews separate due to the outbreak of the coronavirus where the brands were all affected in some way. There is still an issue with the same fans being used at all shows.

This schedule runs from July 15th through August 23rd:

July 15th: NXT episodes to air July 15th and July 22nd

July 17th: SmackDown episode to air July 17th

July 19th: Extreme Rules

July 20th: Raw episodes to air July 20th and July 27th

July 21st: SmackDown episodes to air July 24th and July 31st

July 29th: NXT episodes to air July 29th and August 5th

August 3rd: Raw episodes to air August 3rd and August 10th

August 4th: SmackDown episodes to air August 7th and August 14th

August 12th: NXT episodes to air August 12th and August 19th

August 17th: Raw episode to air August 17th, SmackDown episode to air August 21st, along with 205 Live/Main Event/Raw Talk

August 22nd: NXT TakeOver

August 23rd: SummerSlam
