This pandemic has created a ton of changes to the world of wrestling. As a result, many of WWE’s statistics will be skewed going forward. Such is going to be the case tonight on SmackDown.
As WWE Stats & Info pointed out on Twitter today, the Performance Center is about to become the venue that has hosted the most episodes of SmackDown in history. Every edition of the show has been held at the Performance Center since the start of the pandemic.

“Tonight’s episode will be the 22nd WWE SmackDown to take place inside Orlando’s Performance Center.
This will make the WWE Performance Center home to the most SmackDown episodes in history – passing Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center, which hosted its 21st episode back in November.”
All odds are pointing to these statistics only becoming more skewed as time goes on. We do not appear to be anywhere near the end of this pandemic so it is likely both Raw and SmackDown’s episodes will continue to air from the Performance Center. Who knows how many episodes will have aired from the venue when all this is said and done.
What do you think about this interesting statistic? Let us know on Twitter!
