As we reported earlier, this weeksâ<80><99>s edition of WWE RAW aired on tape delay as the show was still being taped when it started on the USA Network. At the beginning of the show a major production error occurred as they aired the live audio feed where Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler were calling the main event match with Jeff Hardy, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Umaga, JBL, and Snitsky while they were showing graphics of the John Cena/Mark Henry arm wrestling contest and Hornswoggle joining McMahonâ<80><99>s â<80><9c>kiss my assâ<80> club.
WWE will tape the remaining two weeks of programming leading up to No Way Out today and Wednesday. The company will tape this weekâ<80><99>s edition of SmackDown as well as broadcast this weekâ<80><99>s edition of ECW from the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas tomorrow night. They will then tape the following weekâ<80><99>s edition of SmackDown and ECW from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on Wednesday night. If you are attending either one of the tapings and would be interested in sending us text message updates, please send me an email.
