Report: WWE SmackDown To Be "Business As Usual" Despite Vince McMahon Allegations

McMahon will be at the show and things will run 'as normal' despite the recent allegations

Despite the allegations levied against WWE CEO Vince McMahon and other high-ranking executives in a recent article published by the Wall Street Journal, this Friday's SmackDown taping is set to be 'business as usual'. 

PWInsider.com were told that, as of now, there are no planned changes to the production of Friday's show and that things will be run as normal. 

Staff scheduled to work the show have been informed that McMahon will be present at the taping.

The report goes on to say that there was no mention of any change to the status of WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis, who was also named in the Wall Street Journal article.

WWE's board of directors are currently carrying out an internal investigation into the allegations, headed by WWE President Nick Khan.

This Friday's episode of SmackDown will emanate from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Roman Reigns will defend his WWE Universal Title against Riddle in the main event. Should Riddle lose, he will be banned from challenging for the gold again while Reigns is champion.
