WWE Show Going On Hiatus

Triple H WWE Raw

A WWE staple will be taking a break.

According to a new report from Wrestle Votes, The Bump will be going on hiatus for around five weeks. The weekly show launched in 2019, and features interviews with wrestlers and on-screen characters, often blurring the line between reality and storyline.

The decision has reportedly been taken as WWE continues to prepare for the move into its new headquarters in early July.

The show is currently hosted by Sam Roberts, Megan Morant, and Ryan Papolla.

I’m told that following today’s episode of WWE The Bump, the show will be going on a 5-week hiatus as it prepares to transition to the new WWE HQ beginning on July 3rd.

WWE Working On Changes To Raw And SmackDown

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that WWE is looking to start charging cities to host Raw and SmackDown. The company already receives site fees for WrestleMania, the Royal Rumble, and SummerSlam, while it’s also working on deals for Money In The Bank and Survivor Series.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer noted the changes would be “transformative” should they come in as hoped.

The company will be heading to Saudi Arabia on May 24th and 25th for SmackDown and King & Queen of the Ring. The shows are part of the sports entertainment giant’s long-standing relationship with the kingdom. It’s been reported this relationship will be expanded in the coming years, with Saudi Arabian officials confirming they’re looking to secure WrestleMania or the Royal Rumble.
