For two straight nights, a Russian streaming website tapped into the WWE satellite feed that was broadcasting the Raw tapings yesterday and the Smackdown tapings today from London and streamed them live as they happened.

The feed – streamed in HD – also included the Superstars and Main Event tapings as well as the videos that fans in the arena saw on the TitanTron in between segments. Cameras stayed on as crew changed ring aprons and the broadcast team did their tests with the production truck and camera men adjusted their angles.

The link for the live broadcasts was advertised on the popular Russian social media website VK.COM under the account “wrestlingonline” – no relation to us – to their over 200,000 followers.
