SummerSlam (August 23) and Raw (August 24) are also set to be live as well. There will reportedly be one location for all three events, though the location has not been confirmed or announced by WWE. 

SummerSlam weekend was originally scheduled to take place in Boston, but that has since been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

WWE has been taping television every other week and will continue to do so until August 21. The next set of tapings are scheduled for August 13 with the August 14 SmackDown and August 17 Raw set to be taped at the Performance Center. The company will also tape two nights of NXT (August 12 and 19) on August 12. 

It is unknown if WWE will return to a taped schedule following SummerSlam weekend.
