It looks like even more changes are in store for WWE's weekly Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown shows heading into this year's two-night WrestleMania 36 spectacular.
According to John Pollock at Post Wrestling, WWE's decision as of today is to tape all Raw and SmackDown shows through to WrestleMania in the near future.
If true, apart from tomorrow's SmackDown that will feature the TV debut of Rob Gronkowski, that would also include the Raw on 3/23, SmackDown on 3/27, Raw on 3/30 and SmackDown on 4/3.
A source also suggested that WrestleMania - which is to take place over two days on 4/4 and 4/5 - would also be taped in advance from multiple locations.
Apart from the two battle royal matches (men's and women's) that have now been scrapped from the card, WWE is still planning on having every other match, including possibly more matches that have yet to be announced.
Based on that, it would appear that there will at least be some story line progression on the above shows leading into WrestleMania as the other option the company would have is to broadcast primarily archived footage.
WWE officials have not commented or released any sort of statement on this matter.
