WWE is making plans for anther trip overseas and they announced those intentions for another European tour in November. This will come with the company changing the way that they usually do things.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the company is going to pre-tape both RAW and SmackDown during their next European tour. This is going to change up their usual system as the red and blue brand sent Superstars on the tour.

“Usually when they tour Europe they tape TV in Europe, but they’re not taping TV in Europe. They’re going to be taping RAW and SmackDown that week, both in the United States.”

It was also noted that the company is sending the RAW crew after RAW on the week before and they will stay until Saturday. Then the SmackDown crew will replace RAW on the tour after they tape their show in the USA.


The company is doing what they can to accommodate their unique situation and figure out the best way to go about things. It is also pretty expensive to film in Europe for WWE, so it is possible that played into their decision a bit.
