WWE was scheduled to tape tonight’s episode of RAW today as well as next week’s RAW and an edition of Main Event.
PWInsider.com is now reporting that the RAW taping for tonight, which was scheduled to begin around 1:00 PM Eastern, was delayed.
Mike Johnson noted the following:
“PWInsider.com is told the company is deep into re-working their original plans for today’s taping. There is a belief among some we have spoken to that the re-writes are due to talents originally written into the show no longer being available to perform but PWInsider.com has been unable to 100% verify that is correct.”
Johnson added that the poor reaction to the Extreme Rules PPV possibly played an additional role in WWE making last-minute creative changes.
