WWE has cancelled next Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings from the World Arena in Colorado Springs. WWE sent out the message to their fans earlier today saying the show had been cancelled due to the ongoing wildfires in the arena.
Next week’s WWE SmackDown will now taped as part of a double taping (alongside RAW) next Monday from the Pepsi Center in Denver.
Presumably SmackDown will be taped AFTER the night’s live Raw show otherwise the continuity of events might just be a little confusing for the audience!
Here’s the official WWE message;
