WWE Tapes Prospective Network Footage At Full Sail University; Troubling Sign Regarding The WWE Network


- WWE filmed material for two prospective WWE Network shows at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida earlier this month. The first shows taped were one-hour shows highlighting Florida Championship Wrestling workers. The company also taped a half-hour special on Sheamus & Daniel Bryan beating Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre. While the first shows were centered around highlighting the developmental process, the second show focuses on a specific match. All material taped was pilot footage, meaning it may or may not be used.
