For those interested, this is the current plan for WWE when it comes to television episodes for the holiday season this December.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown will be live every week except Friday 12/23.  They will have a live FOX broadcast and tape the Friday 12/23 episode in Chicago at the Allstate Arena on 12/16.

WWE NXT will be live on Tuesday 12/8 and Tuesday 12/12 on the USA Network.  On Wednesday 12/14, they will tape the 12/20 and 12/27 episodes in advance at the WWE Performance Center.  They will resume live episodes on 1/6/23. has not confirmed what the plans will be for Monday Night Raw on 12/26.  It is interesting to note that the Raw brand has a live event that night in Columbus, Ohio at the Nationwide Arena, but that show being advertised as a Holiday live event tour date, not a live Raw broadcast.  The Smackdown brand will be in Madison Square Garden that night but that as well is a Holiday live event tour.  Raw has a live taping the week before in Des Moines, Iowa at the Wells Fargo Arena.  It's always possible they will tape content that night for 12/26 or even forgo the usual Raw format for the 12/26 broadcast on the USA Network, but we haven't confirmed either to be the case.  So, stay tuned.
