WWE changing their television taping schedule through July to increase performer safety

WWE changes TV tapings again

According to a new report by Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet.com and WWE Backstage, WWE is changing their taping schedule through July to increase performer safety in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move has been confirmed by a WWE representative when reached for comment.

After initially being reported that WWE would be taping a number of episodes of WWE television, Vince McMahon reportedly changed his mind last Friday to tape all shows live. That was at the same time WWE was named an essential service in Florida.

According to the report, WWE’s health and safety measures at the Performance Center have continued to evolve, including everyone wearing face masks, medical screenings prior to entering the facility, only essential personnel, and “pandemic-level” cleaning.
