WWE will once again be giving its crew time off during the Christmas holiday.
Last year, WWE gave stars on Raw and SmackDown time off on Christmas Eve and Day as well as New Year’s Eve and Day. The company taped those shows in advance.
WWE is doing the same for the Raw episode that falls near the holiday. WrestleVotes passed along this note in a recent tweet:
“Asked about WWE’s holiday taping schedule for this year. The 12/23 RAW will not be live – it will be taped on 12/17 from Sioux City, IA. All talent is scheduled to be off from 12/22-12/26. Obviously, no live NXT on Xmas night either.”
WWE’s official website also has this TV taping listed as well.
