With the debut of WWE Main Event on Wednesday on the Ion Network, WWE will be changing up their TV taping schedule. As we noted a few weeks back, starting today, Raw and Superstars will be taped Mondays. On Tuesdays, Smackdown and Main Event will be taped.
Internally, the plan is to kick off Main Event with some top-tier matches and talent as WWE wants a strong showing for their new network partner, particularly since Ion is broadcast traditionally in many markets, as well as carried via cable providers. So, expect more matches at the level of Sheamus vs. CM Punk early on.
