WWE Monday Night Raw Canceled Tonight Due to Snow Storm
It's probably not the best time for WWE to have to cancel a show, but they don't have a choice this time around.
Last night the WWE held their annual Royal Rumble event to kickoff the road to their biggest show of the year Wrestlemania. In front of a ruckus Philadelphia crowd, the WWE did not give the fans what they wanted. Crowd favorite Daniel Bryan was eliminated halfway through the Rumble, with Roman Reigns winning and punching his ticket to the main event of Wrestlemania.
The negativity of the event lead to a worldwide trend of #CancelWWENetwork. Fans started the backlash immediately and even led to some fans in Philadelphia preventing talent from leaving the arena.
Tonight was the night to move forward the story and potentially write themselves out of a deep hole with fans. Now the company won't have the chance. Justin LaBar from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has reported that Raw has been canceled due to the incoming snow storm in the upper northeast.
As of now, the WWE has not made an official statement regarding the cancellation of the show. The city of Hartford has issued a travel ban as of 9:00 PM along with a state emergency. The upper northeast is expected to get one to two feet of snow. WWE will be doing a studio show in replace of Monday Night Raw.
