Report: WWE's Taping Schedule Altered For First Week Of July
No official reason has been given...
WWE has shaken up its TV taping schedule for the coming days, going so far as to delay several TV episodes that were planned to be taped this weekend, according to a report from John Pollock of POST Wrestling.
The original plan was to tape two episodes of Raw and two episodes of SmackDown earlier in the weekend. Instead, Friday's episode of SmackDown leaned heavily on an extended Undertaker tribute, with 60 percent of the show made up of fresh content.
Monday's episode of Raw was set to tape earlier on Saturday at the Performance Center.
As for the forthcoming TV episodes, Pollock reports the following taping dates:
*Wednesday, July 1: Two episodes of NXT will be taped to air July 1st (later that night) and July 8, which are the Great American Bash episodes
*Thursday, July 2: Two episodes of SmackDown will be taped to air on July 3 and July 10 and taping 205 Live.
*Friday, July 3: Two episodes of Raw will be taped airing on July 6th and July 13 as well as tapings of Main Event & Raw Talk.
