Reports: WWE Raw Taping Delayed As Plans Change And Talent Is Unavailable

Things seemingly haven't gone smoothly at the Performance Center as WWE tapes upcoming episodes of Raw.

According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Monday's taping at the Performance Center was slated to begin at 1 p.m. ET, but things didn't begin until roughly 3 p.m. ET. Johnson reports the company was deep into re-working its plans for the taping.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that the planned show was torn up last night and would be re-written. The planned finish to Asuka vs. Sasha Banks at Extreme Rules was reportedly changed at the last minute and that has reportedly changed the original plan for Asuka's match at SummerSlam.

Meltzer goes on to report the changes made to Raw have to do with plans changing and talent not being available.

WWE had only announced Randy Orton vs. Big Show in an unsanctioned bout for Raw as of 3:45 p.m. ET. More matches were added at 4 p.m. ET.

PWInsider previously reported July 20 is the final date on Kairi Sane's contract, though it is unclear in what capacity, if any, she will be used at the tapings. PWInsider also notes that Rey Mysterio is at the taping, though Wrestling Observer reports he has yet to sign a new contract.

WWE is scheduled to tape the July 20 and 27 episodes of WWE Raw on Monday.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Monday.
