One of the things WWE is best known for is its ability to adhere to the strict TV programming schedule it has boasted for a long time.
Each week for years WWE fans have been treated to an episode of both Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, as well as having a pay-per-view event to build up to at the end of each month.
This week though, due to a blizzard warning in the location of Hartford, Connecticut, a driving ban was put in place meaning WWE really had no option but to cancel the original recording of Raw.
The studio show which was put on instead however seemed to be pulled off very well considering it was not the primary choice, with many of the industry's biggest names making an appearance.
As a result of the change, some alterations have been made to the line-up for Thursday's live SmackDown show in Hartford.
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is no longer set to appear at the taping following his win in the main event triple threat match at Royal Rumble on Sunday night.
Lesnar did however make his regular appearance during the studio-edition of Monday Night Raw to be interviewed about the pay-per-view event as well as WrestleMania XXXI.
Many believed that Randy Orton would be making his WWE TV return at Royal Rumble last weekend, but with The Viper not having made an appearance, he is also no longer being listed by WWE as taking part in SmackDown on Thursday night.
There is however talk of the XL Center still advertising Orton as part of an eight-man tag team match along with John Cena, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose against Seth Rollins, Kane, Big Show and Bray Wyatt.
In addition, Kane is also being advertised in the main event of the night in a casket match against Daniel Bryan.
With the disappointing Rumble match appearance he made on Sunday night, WWE fans will be hoping to see D-Bry conquer Kane and prove his worth having made his long-awaited return to WWE.
