WWE Friday Night SmackDown Taping Cancelled

Following news of a positive COVID-19 test emerging on Monday, WWE postponed yesterday’s set of TV tapings so that they could test everyone within the company for the virus. The results of those tests are starting to come in.

WWE was hoping to pick things up today with a huge day of tapings. Reports indicated that it could go down as one of the longest taping days in WWE history.

Well according to Gary Cassidy on Twitter, WWE has now been forced to cancel the SmackDown tapings that were set to take place today. According to Cassidy, WWE is still waiting for test results from several SmackDown roster members.


John Pollock of POST Wrestling has now confirmed via Twitter that the taping for Main Event has started, with 205 Live and Raw set to follow later on today. He also notes why there was a delay.

Right now, the priority for WWE must be making sure that several NXT test results are back negative, as WWE has still not even begun taping tonight’s show that is set to go live in just over seven hours. Reports indicate that the show may be live.
