More Cancellations Announced For WWE As Result Of COVID-19 Live Event Bans

Friday Night SmackDown, Next Week’s Raw & Several WWE Live Events Canceled Or Postponed

This week’s WWE Friday Night Smackdown and next week’s Monday Night Raw will both be moved to the company’s Performance Center in Orlando, FL, according to multiple sources.

Friday’s show was set to take place in New Orleans with Rob Gronkowski’s TV debut but had to be moved after the state banned any events with more than 50 people.

As noted before, Monday’s Raw was to take place in Fort Worth, TX but that event has been rescheduled to 7/31 and turned into a Smackdown show instead.

The company will likely be releasing a statement to this effect imminently.

All of WWE’s events for the rest of the month and perhaps longer are up in the air and likely postponed indefinitely or canceled outright.

This includes multiple WWE and NXT house shows scheduled for this weekend, including the company’s return to MSG on March 22 that has already publicly been postponed.
