WWE presents Raw live from North Carolina tonight, and will have a full roster present for the live show before many of them leave to make the long trip to Glasgow for their first live show of the European Tour.
The list of names missing from what could potentially be a lacklustre edition of the Friday night show includes Randy Orton, Kane, Big E, Daniel Bryan and The Shield. Although some of the top names will be missing from this edition, WWE are still advertising the likes of John Cena, The Wyatt Family, Big Show, Sheamus, Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio for that night's event.
Of course Smackdown is recorded on a Tuesday so the superstars would not be available for the show because of making the trip to Scotland and so hopefully WWE have something big up their sleeve for that night because a lot of fans of the 'Yes Movement' will not be happy that Daniel wont be performing.
Even so, with the likes of The Wyatt family and John Cena still available it is likely Smackdown tomorrow night will prepare viewers for what is to come next Monday on Raw live from the UK.
WWE always puts on a spectical when it's live from London and it's the first time the WWE Universe will see the superstars live in 2014. The first live Raw takes place a week today from the capital followed by Smackdown before WWE embarks on many other live shows that week.
The likes of Paige, Wade Barrett and Sheamus will all return home over the next few weeks holding onto the gold they have all won and retained in recent weeks as WWE embarks on their first European tour of the year with two British and one Irish champion for the first time in history.
Triple H is also being advertised for Smackdown, which is recorded tomorrow night as well as The Shield and Big E, but with them being advertised for both this could either be an error on WWE's part or they will travel later following the episode and perform at both shows.
The superstars who are kept behind for the Smackdown tapings will then be making their way to Rome for another live show this time on Thursday as the WWE talent's hectic schedules begin and they embark on the lead up to this year's Payback pay-per-view which lands in Chicago, Illinois on June 1st.
