Turn around WWE. The Coronavirus pandemic has shaken up WWE for over a year now and it is time to start getting things back to normal. Starting this week, WWE will be back on the road full time and that means there are going to be a lot of changes taking place at once. However, it seems that one of those changes will already be changed as well for some reason.
The State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia has announced that the September 17 SmackDown will no longer be held at the venue, with refunds being available at the point of purchase. There is no word on why the change has been made and no new location has been announced for the event. WWE will begin holding events on the road again starting on July 16 in Houston, Texas.

There have been some shows in Atlanta before. Check out some times in the city:
Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on here but canceling/moving one taping could mean quite a few things. The best we can hope for is that it is not Coronavirus related as changing a show about two months after a show once they go back on the road would be a bad sign. This is still uncharted territory and I’m not sure how it is going to play out. Enjoy it while you can if nothing else.
What does this mean? Where will the show go? Let us know in the comments below.
