WWE is planning to air live weekly programming again

WWE is looking to stop holding TV tapings for its weekly television programs such as Raw, NXT, and SmackDown soon.

Instead of taping shows two at a time, WrestleVotes reports that the company plans to start airing live weekly programming again starting with the August 21st episode of Friday Night SmackDown, which would be the go-home edition of the blue brand for SummerSlam.

WWE wants to have one location for the entire weekend that would include SmackDown, SummerSlam, and then the following Raw. NXT TakeOver: 30 is still planned to take place in Orlando, Florida.

This comes at a time where it has been reported multiple times that WWE is planning to hold this year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event from an outdoor location with the hope of having fans in attendance. Atlantic City is the favored hosting site.

WWE holds the SummerSlam pay-per-view event on Sunday, August 23, 2020. WrestleVotes reported the following:

“WWE’s new plan is to restart LIVE programming beginning w/ the SmackDown prior to SummerSlam, continuing throughout the weekend w/ the PPV & into RAW. Fans are still TBD. 1 location for all. Not certain on exact location as of yet. NXT TakeOver will still take place in Orlando.”
