Reason WWE is Now Taping Raw and Smackdown on Different Days

-- In light of the recent “outbreak” of COVID-19 within WWE, a number of changes came into effect immediately thereafter in an attempt to control any further infections. One major change the company made is to their taping schedule as up until last month, WWE would often tape both Smackdown and Raw for a given week on the same night. Instead, moving forward, Raw brand tapings will take place one night and Smackdown another as this would help mitigate any potential outbreak or at the least, help contain it to one brand or another.
