Raw, SmackDown and NXT to Resume Live Tapings From WWE Performance Center

wwe resumes raw smackdown nxt live filming tapings performance center coronavirus

Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and NXT will once again resume taping their shows live from the Performance Center starting next week.

Sources tell us the decision to go back to doing the shows live was made on Friday after filming 205 Live and Friday Night SmackDown. No word 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.

As you’ll recall, WWE started filming at the Performance Center last month due to the coronavirus pandemic. They’ve since gone on record talking about the many precautions they’re going through to limit the possible spread of the virus at the tapings, which included filming in pre-taped batches.

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.
