On Wednesday night, WWE sent an email to their talent informing them they were going to hold this week’s episode of SmackDown from them Performace Center due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Once it leaked online WWE quickly denied this saying:

WWE has not cancelled Friday Night SmackDown in Detroit, however, based on the current situation, we are putting contingency plans in place in the event that upcoming WWE shows are cancelled by government officials, civil authorities and/or local venues.

It is not known why WWE would deny this when they had told the talent already the plans, but it has now been officially confirmed that SmackDown will this week come from WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Florida.

John Cena, Paige, and Jeff Hardy (returning from injury) have all been announced for this episode previously, and it’s assumed they will still be in appearing.

We now await an update on Monday’s upcoming episode of Raw.
