According to a new report, WWE producers have been hit hard by COVID-19 heading into tonight’s episode of Raw.
PWInsider is reporting that while a typical Raw taping would have around a dozen or so producers, the company is down to “about half of that”, adding to the workload producers are typically given. The situation is also tough because in addition to tonight’s Raw in Detroit, Michigan, there is also a SmackDown house show in Orlando, Florida, and thus additional producers that are usually available can’t be brought in.
WWE has been hit hard in the last week by COVID protocols, causing last night’s house show in Madison Square Garden to be changed dramatically. What originally was supposed to be Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins vs. Big E in a steel cage match for the WWE Championship was switched to a cage match between Kevin Owens and Edge, who was originally not scheduled to be on the show.
A Raw Women’s Championship match between Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair also was scheduled but never took place, as neither woman appeared on the card.
