One reason is to save money. Imagine paying flights to different destinations for a whole locker room of people and a technical crew. Also, to save time for more house shows/promotional tours/press conferences/etc. It also allows time for editing out unwanted parts or other segments that could get them in federal trouble or just plain trouble.

It is easier and cheaper to produce a taped show instead of live, I'm sure a lot of people don't remember this, but at one point Raw was taped every week as well, they only changed that format because WCW Nitro started competing against WWF Raw, Nitro was live when Raw was taped, and Eric Bischoff was giving out the results to those taped Raws!
