WWE news: Orlando Tapings to resume; Ripley off TV for a while

rhea-ripleyFightful is reporting that WWE informed talent on Monday night that they plan to film upcoming episodes of Raw, SmackDown, and NXT this week from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando.

The plan right now is to film from Friday through until next Thursday with three episodes each of Raw and SmackDown, and several episodes of NXT.

WWE is working an extremely tight schedule in the midst of Florida’s stay at home order, so things could change rapidly at any given stage.


Rhea Ripley Removed From WWE Television For A While

Rhea Ripley has been forced to go back to Australia due to her work visa expiring, according to PWInsider. Ripley will not be involved in any of the company’s upcoming television tapings.

Upon returning to Australia she will be required to do go into a mandatory two-week isolation due to coronavirus rules currently in place within the country.

At this stage given the pandemic it remains unknown when she will be able to get her visas renewed to return to the United States.

This was likely one of the key reasons Charlotte Flair won the NXT Women’s Title at WrestleMania 36.
