The Road to WrestleMania just got a little more tricky. Originally broken by PWInsider, the WWE’s crew have packed up the production trucks due to weather conditions caused by Storm Juno. The WWE has held off on tonight’s Raw originally scheduled at the XL Center in Hartford, CN. The WWE has released the following statement on the event and what ticket options are available:
STAMFORD, Conn. – 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 p.m. ET from its studios in the Stamford world headquarters.
- Hartford, Conn., XL Center: Tickets for tonight’s show in Hartford will be honored for a SmackDown event this Thursday, January 29 that will air live on Syfy.
- Boston, Mass., TD Garden: Fans with tickets to tomorrow’s event in Boston will have the option of either exchanging tickets for an upcoming WWE event on Saturday, June 27 or obtaining a refund at point of purchase.
Mother nature’s meddling with the road to WrestleMania is about the last thing the WWE needs after the serious backlash from Royal Rumble. The Raw kickoff is extremely important as it lays the groundwork for who will be in the biggest event of the year. Luckily the WWE broadcast will broadcast live at 8/7C on USA Network as usual, but who will actually appear due to weather conditions is unclear.
The first potential confrontation to come to mind is that of champion Brock Lesnar and Royal Rumble winner Roman Reigns. Do you think they will be able to appear tonight to pump up WrestleMania?
