Glasgow, Nov 5: Both the weekly episodes television shows in WWE will not take place live, next week. WWE is traveling overseas with their entire crews for next week’s tapings. So, Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live are scheduled to take place in Glasgow, Scotland.

So, as per general routine, the shows which are broadcasted live will now be pre-taped and go on the air. This will happen due to the time differences in United States of America and United Kingdom.

As reported by PW Unlimited, both the show is going to be pre-taped and will go on the air on USA Network.

Normally, both the shows start airing at 8 PM ET and 5 PM PT. However, next week the tapings will start at 8 PM as per Glasgow’s local timing.

So, you can expect a lot of spoilers before the shows even go on the air. It’s up to you whether you want to get the early updates on the social media or not.

It has become a norm for WWE to travel to the United Kingdom for Raw & Smackdown tapings at least twice in a year.

Last year too, prior to Survivor Series PPV, WWE has traveled to Manchester, England for the same purpose. The episode saw Undertaker & Kane reuniting with the Wyatt family.

They took out all members of the Wyatt family and then go on to headline the survivor Series PPV. The episode taking place on November 9th, 2015 also saw Manchester captain Wayne Rooney attending the show.

He has gone into a verbal confrontation with Wade Barrett forcing him to slap the King of the Ring winner.

We expect a tag team match between the team of Jeri-KO and Rollins & Reigns. After what transpired last week, this match is almost bound to take place on Raw.

Plus, Raw will announce their full team line-ups for the Survivor Series PPV. On the other hand, on Smackdown Live, Becky Lynch will be defending her Women’s title against Alexa Bliss.
