News on WWE Now Taping 205 Live Before Friday Night Smackdown


— In a move that hasn’t gotten a lot of publicity, WWE is now taping 205 Live on Fridays prior to Smackdown. Usually two matches are taped for the show, followed by Smackdown and then a dark match after the show goes off air. As per the Observer Newsletter, the likely reason for this is that 205 Live being taped after Smackdown was being performed in front of both dead and empty crowds. This move has solved the empty crowd situation but the consensus is that because the audience has been conditioned to not take 205 Live that seriously, the crowd reaction remains low to these matches.
