President Donald Trump is scheduled to be transported to the Walter Reed Medical Center today. At the same time, WWE is airing Friday Night SmackDown on FOX, but the whole show might not make the air.
FOX has affiliates across the country, and their local news channels might have to cut into the SmackDown feed this week for an update on President Donald Trump’s condition.
President Trump revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Fightful Select reports that “several FOX affiliates” have been notified that they might need to cut into SmackDown in order to provide an update as Trump is transported to the Walter Reed Medical Center.
We will have more updates as time goes on. It is reported that this would be happening regardless of what was on the air. The POTUS’ condition is the kind of breaking story that would cut into any show.
