WWE switched up their television taping schedule in a big way. They’re not going live every week, but the Superstars still don’t get that much of a break.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that some Superstars are deciding to stay in Florida throughout these television tapings. It beats having to travel back and forth every other week because WWE’s new schedule makes quarantine impossible anyway.
“For the talent who doesn’t want to quarantine they go less. For guys who are going to quarantine it’s no better and there are guys who are gonna stay in Florida who don’t live in Florida — a lot of the guys live in Florida, but if you live in Florida and you want to quarantine you’re still screwed. You’re not ever gonna have more than two weeks off.”
WWE is doing what they can to keep their programs on the air every week. They don’t have to go live now, but it really doesn’t make it much easier for everyone involved. It just means that WWE has more time to prepare for their next show.
