The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on WWE programming. The company has been forced to broadcast episodes of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, and WrestleMania 36 has been moved from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida and will now air from multiple closed-circuit locations on April 4 and April 5.
Reports over the weekend indicated that WWE will no longer air live programming and all shows through The Showcase Of The Immortals will be taped this week, marking the first-time a pay-per-view will be recorded in advance since SummerSlam 1992.
Now, Dave Meltzer has reported on Wrestling Observer Online that the company is looking to tape the next three weeks of Raw over the next two days, including the Raw after WrestleMania 36.
This could create a unique situation in WWE whereby Drew McIntyre will be given the WWE Championship to celebrate his WrestleMania win on Raw, then give the title back to Lesnar with The Show Of Shows set to be taped on Wednesday and Thursday.
