As we explained to you last week, WWE has recorded all of its upcoming shows, including Wrestlemania 36. However, the company only recorded shows from March 25 to April 8, until the NXT episode which airs this Wednesday.
This leaves a question mark over Smackdown, the one after Wrestlemania. Originally, Smackdown was to be broadcast live after the end of confinement pronounced by Orange County which was to intervene on April 09, but the state of Florida recently declared a general containment, which will not be lifted until April 30, minimum.
As a result, it will be strictly impossible for WWE to register at the Performance Center or Full Sail University during the month of April. According to Dave Meltzer, WWE nevertheless plans to record this episode of Smackdown in question.
WWE said the location was secret, the reporter said, but it appears the recordings will take place in a state of containment or closures of non-essential businesses. Note that President of the United States Donald Trump still refuses to apply general confinement to the whole country.
For the moment, 46 out of 50 states have imposed the closure of non-essential businesses but fewer apply stricter containment measures, unlike Italy, Spain or France to cite the European example. Only North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Arkansas have still not imposed specific measures, including the closure of non-essential businesses.
