WWE Going Back To Live TV Next Week?

WWE Going Back To Live TV Next Week?
As strange as it may sound, WWE is scheduled to resume live TV shows from the empty WWE Performance Center next week.

As noted, WWE is currently taping another set of lengthy TV tapings at the Performance Center in Orlando. Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that next week's WWE NXT, RAW and SmackDown will air live. The decision was reportedly made to go back live after the company filmed tonight's SmackDown and 205 Live episodes earlier today. There's no word yet on what influenced the decision.

It’s worth noting the Governor of Florida issued a 30-day “stay-at-home” order this month to limit the spread of coronavirus. The mandate allows supermarkets, clinics, banks, pharmacies and other daily necessities to stay open. People are also allowed to exercise outside while staying six-feet apart, according to the order, as long as it’s in groups of less than 10 people.

WWE has been filming TV shows and WrestleMania 36 from the closed-set Performance Center since early March due to the coronavirus pandemic. It could be late summer before they're around to run a regular schedule with arenas and fans once again, but that timeline has not been confirmed.

WWE has also already started promoting their Money in the Bank event set to take place on May 10. That show will seemingly take place from the PC as well.

Stay tuned for updates from the WWE tapings.
