WWE RAW could be cancelled due to serious weather conditions

Tonight's live Raw episode from Hertfordshire could be in risk of being cancelled after serious weather conditions in the north east of the United States.

The fall out from last night's underwhelming Royal Rumble Pay-per-view was set to play a big part in tonight's proceedings, but now it seems the episode may not be going ahead. 

Huge Blizzard

Weather reports suggest that a massive blizzard is heading for the United States and it set to cause major traffic delays for the next few days meaning that some online sites are already reporting that tomorrow's Smackdown taping is cancelled. 

The risk is not only to the Superstars who have all already been texted and told to stay in their hotels, but WWE have to think about fans who are travelling to the arena and if their safety is at risk as well. 

Early this morning it was announced that Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy had issued a travel ban in the state starting at 9pm. Raw is supposed to air live at 8pm with fans entering the arena around 6:30pm and then a Superstars taping is scheduled before Raw airs live.

It is likely that Raw could be cancelled completely because of the amount of fans that would be entering the building, but at the same time there has already been speculation that there will be something aired in Raw's place but there have been no details of this yet. 

The show itself can not be done without any fans and the danger is mostly to the 10's of thousands of fans who are travelling to the arena. 

Blessing in Disguise

WWE wouldn't be happy about missing an extra week of build up to Wrestlemania in just 62 days, but they can't help the weather. 

It could be a blessing in disguise after the way fans have reacted to last night's Royal Rumble on social media, with reports that the WWE Network cancellation page had crashed after so many people had decided to cancel their subscription.
