WWE is bringing fans another United Kingdom Championship Tournament and even though it’s not called the King Of The Ring, people are still excited about it. But for some reason, the big two-night event will not air live on the WWE Network.
This delay of the broadcast made some fans question the reasoning especially when we’re so used to seeing things live and the internet tends to spoil results more often than not.
But the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that WWE made the decision not to air the shows live because they wanted to have time to post-produce the show. For this reason, both shows will air with a one-week tape delay on 6/25/ and 6/26.
These shows are expected to end a couple hours before Raw and SmackDown that week which is interesting. But just in case there is something they need to cut out like some kind of accidental bloodbath or whatever else, they can polish up the show and they have a week to do so if needed.
