The coronavirus pandemic continues to affect WWE's upcoming schedule as the company locally announced a postponement to its upcoming SmackDown UK tour as well as a set of NXT UK tapings.

The May tour has primarily been pushed back to October with one date moved to April 2021:

  • Glasgow, Scotland: May 3rd moved to October 7th
  • Birmingham, England: May 5th moved to October 4th
  • Cardiff, Wales: May 6th moved to October 5th

  • London, England, Friday Night SmackDown: May 8th moved to October 9th
  • Newcastle, England: May 4th moved to April 30th, 2021

Additionally, they canceled their two-day NXT UK tapings in Bournemouth, England, for May 1st and 2nd with no return date booked. The tapings were the follow-up to the also canceled NXT UK TakeOver Dublin event. 

The brand's annual appearance and tapings at the UK Download Festival in mid-June have also been canceled. That would make their next set of tapings on Friday, July 24th and Saturday, July 25th in Glasgow, Scotland.

Their last set of tapings were held on the first weekend of March.
