WWE will be taping two weeks television next week, heading into the Backlash pay-per-view.
Wrestling Inc. has learned post-Backlash episodes of RAW and SmackDown will be taped before the pay-per-view. WWE did the same with WrestleMania this past April where they taped the post-WrestleMania 36 episode of RAW before recording most of the pay-per-view.
