WWE’s Taping Schedule For April Through July Released, Big Change to Money in the Bank

It appears WWE has their tapings and live television schedule set for the next few months as a calendar of dates for the WWE Performance Center have been set.

Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet.com is reporting the following:

  • SmackDown will air this evening live as scheduled on FOX
  • Raw will air on Monday live as scheduled on USA Network
  • NXT will air on Wednesday live as scheduled
  • Next Friday, SmackDown will air live as scheduled
  • Saturday, April 25; two episodes of SmackDown will be taped (airing May 1 and May 8)
  • Monday, April 27; two episodes of Raw will be taped (one for that night and the other will air the following week on May 4)
  • Wednesday, April 29; two episodes of NXT will be taped (one is for that night, the other will air on May 6)
  • Monday, May 11; one episode of Raw will be taped for that night and one episode of SmackDown will be taped for May 15
  • Tuesday, May 12; one episode of Raw will be taped for May 18 and one episode of SmackDown will be taped for May 22
  • Wednesday, May 13; two episodes of NXT will be taped (one is for that night, the other will air on May 20)

  • Monday, June 8; one episode of Raw taped for that evening and another episode of SmackDown taped for June 12
  • Tuesday, June 9; one episode of NXT will be taped for June 10
  • Monday, June 15; one episode of Raw taped for that evening and another episode of SmackDown taped for June 19
  • Tuesday, June 16; one episode of Raw taped for June 22 and another episode of SmackDown taped for June 26
  • Wednesday, June 17; two episodes of NXT will be taped (one is that night, the other will air on June 24)
  • Monday, June 29; two episodes of Raw will be taped (one for that night and the other will air on July 6)
  • Tuesday, June 30; two episodes of SmackDown will be taped (one for July 3 and one for July 10)
  • Wednesday, July 1; two episodes of NXT will be taped (one is for that night, the other will air on July 8)

This should be helpful to reduce the risk of infections, give more time for breaks and quarantines and lower the staff numbers needed at any one time, thus reducing flights.

In a way, this also answers some of the questions regarding television networks and their holding WWE to live shows only. There was speculation that WWE was required to put on a certain number of shows live to not be in violation of their deals. But, there are a lot of taped shows here.

Change to Money In The Bank PPV

There is also word that the Money in the Bank PPV may not take place from the WWE Performance Center. Popular rumors Twitter account WrestleVotes is saying the show is being moved to another location, still with no fans.
