Details on another WWE cutback in production department

The latest financial cutback within WWE is that the company's production crew is no longer being provided buses for travel between PPV and television tapings. According to a report by Dave Meltzer, WWE had provided buses for the crew on Sunday to Monday on PPV weekends and then Monday through Tuesday every week.

The production process would see the crew break down the set and be done around 1:00 a.m., get on the bus, sleep and be driven to the next arena to begin the setup process early in the morning. By taking the bus travel away, the crew has to now drive themselves and get almost no sleep. This change was described as being very physically taxing on the crew.
