Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter said, “There will be no new Raw or Smackdown next week. The 12/25 and 12/29 shows respectively will be best of shows. It’s funny because WWE is on tour on 12/29 and obviously a TV taping would draw better in one of those markets and do much higher rating.”

Along with RAW, Friday, Dec. 29 episode of SmackDown will also be pre-taped, though it is unclear when and where. NXT talent and crew will also benefit from the same break. Many fans and wrestlers have praised WWE and Triple H for giving their employees some extra time off for the holidays, especially after a challenging year due to the pandemic.
