— As we first reported here, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is also now saying that the Christmas week Raw and Smackdown shows will be taped ahead of time, after the live shows the week before on 12/17 and 12/18.
— They add that the company will likely pre-tape a lot of content to try and keep the second (taped) Raw on the night relatively short and to about two hours. It should also be noted that the second Raw show won’t have to deal with any full-run commercials. On the 12/18 show in Fresno, the taped Smackdown will likely end up being only 90 minutes given these conditions.
