ECW Taping Moved, RAW Leaving TSN, & More Notes

Devin Cutting sent this in: The Smackdown taping & live ECW TV broadcast on August 29th, 2006 has been moved from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut to the Sovereign Center in Reading, Pennsylvania.

According to reports, the scheduled WWE press conference on Wednesday in Toronto will more than likely announce that Monday Night RAW will be moving from TSN to The Score in Canada. It appears a decline in ratings for RAW combined with TSN acquiring the rights to Monday Night Football starting this September is the reason for the change. As of now, the final episode of RAW on TSN will take place on July 31. Based on what is known, TSN and WWE were unable to reach an agreement when it come to how RAW would be presented on the station when Monday Night Football was to start. So when it came a decision, TSN took Monday Night Football over WWE programming.

Shantelle Taylor had her "farewell" to the independent scene this past weekend in Canada as she recently signed a developmental deal with WWE.
