WWE News: ‘Monday Night Raw’ Officially Postponed Until Thursday, ‘Smackdown’ Also Cancelled

The WWE Universe is buzzing after the Royal Rumble’s main event last night in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It wasn’t enough that Roman Reigns left victorious and on his way to the main event of WrestleMania 31, but most WWE fans are upset at how the entire match was put together.

For example, Daniel Bryan entered as #10 but left rather quickly after nearly 10 minutes of in-ring action. That was the favorite expressed vibrantly by the WWE Universe, and as soon as Bray Wyatt knocked Bryan off the apron, the WWE crowd in Philly turned off their excitement abruptly.

If things couldn’t get worse for WWE, then most of the fans thought wrong. Winter Storm Juno is in full-force that includes states entering a “State of Emergency.” Monday Night Raw was scheduled to be in Hartford, Connecticut, at the XL Center, but plans are about to change.

Monday Night Raw is cancelled, and the Smackdown tapings tomorrow night is also cancelled. As of right now, the idea is to hold the show on Thursday evening.

Due to the impending blizzard in the northeast and statewide travel bans, WWE has postponed tonight’s live event in Hartford and cancelled tomorrow night’s live event in Boston; however, WWE will emanate live tonight at 8:00 p.m ET from its studios in the Stamford world headquarters.

This comes as a huge surprise because WWE has never cancelled a show before. Vince McMahon’s moniker always remained the same, “The show must go on.” Raw and Smackdown being cancelled, due to the horrific storm, shows that WWE does care about its audience and talent.

Remember, if the WWE were to hold the shows with the storm, then the arenas would be near depletion. It just so happens that WWE is in Harford tonight and Boston tomorrow night for the Smackdown tapings. Prior to the official confirmation from WWE, Natalya and Zack Ryder tweeted about the weather, which led to the speculation that both shows would end up getting postponed.

Logistically, the WWE was going to get booed from the WWE faithful if tonight’s Raw did take place. So, this week with no Monday night program might do the fans some good. Especially with the rumored WrestleMania 31 card that came out earlier, the WWE fans are in rare form.
