@gunslingerpanda: To be fair, that guy could have easily sent that to PWInsider and posted it on Reddit.

And now PWInsider is reporting that the show is canceled:

TONIGHT'S RAW TAPING IS CANCELED
by Mike Johnson @ 11:57 AM on 1/26/2015

Tonight's Raw taping in Hartford, CT will not take place.

Joseph Lopes, who works across the street from the XL Center in Hartford, sent word that WWE's crew are currently packing up the production trucks and that he was told the taping is canceled.

We are told there will be a WWE Raw broadcast tonight, but of what nature, we are not sure. A decision on Smackdown is forthcoming. WWE will be issuing an official announcement on all of this any minute.

Well things are going from bad to worse as Connecticut (home of Raw tonight) has declared a state of emergency due to the impending snow storm in the north east. What this means is that all travel within the state is banned starting at 9 P.M. and only emergency vehicles are allowed to be on the streets. That means if they do hold Raw, the entire arena would be locked in after the first hour until morning. The state governor also responded to Raw happening in Hartford by saying that safety comes first. You can read up about it here.

Also, while this is more speculation than based on actual announcements, TD Garden in Boston (home of Smackdown) is getting ready for the worst, so they're thinking of running Smackdown on Wednesday or even Thursday night as there's a chance that the state of Massachusetts will also declare a state of emergency.

@corevi said:

@papercut: Does Orton count as a surprise entrant? I'm thinking no but an official ruling would be nice.

No, Orton is a member of the regular roster.

With under 48 hours before the biggest and most hyped PPV WWE's done in a long time, it's time, it's time, it's LoC time!

Since we're starting a new season, there aren't any leaderboards to show off, but might as well mention that there are no new rules this season, just a ladder reset.

So here are the official rules:

  • You don't have to sign up, just make predictions and I'll add ya to the rankings.
  • Simply predict the answers to each question and, for every correct one, you get a point (unless stated otherwise); you don't lose anything for getting it wrong.
  • You do not have to bet on every match and you don't have to answer every question.
  • Whoever is in #1 after the PPV is allowed to have the Championship belt in their avatar.
  • If your prediction post is edited after the PPV, then you are disqualified for the event.
  • You must have your predictions in before the PPV/Pre-Show begins.
  • If the match ends in a draw (if Mark Henry suplexes The Big Show and the ring implodes, etc.), the prediction is cancelled and no points will be awarded/taken away.
  • Your final total (i.e. the one that will appear in the rankings) is the sum of all your PPV predictions subtracted by the lowest PPV prediction total. E.g. say I've done 3 PPVs (with scores of 30, 25 and 40), the score that would appear in the rankings is 30 + 40 = 70. If I were to participate in a fourth PPV (and I got a score of 20), then my new total would be 25 + 30 + 40 = 95.
  • The LoC committee has the right to change the rules if necessary.

And here's the official list of Matches (via WWE.com):

@gorillamopena: Considering that Rusev can go, Lesnar can go and Lesnar could easily become a face after Raw, I'm totally on board with that.

@papercut: The upcoming matches are (without spoilers):

Next Week (1/28):
- Adrian Neville vs. Tyson Kidd
- Baron Corbin vs. Bull Dempsey

Two Weeks (2/4):
- Hideo Itami vs. Finn Bálor
- Winner of Neville/Kidd vs. Winner of Corbin/Dempsey

Three Weeks (2/11):
- Final

@milkman: You know, I think I actually prefer the fact that Roman told the "haters" to fuck off rather Cena, who plays cute with it.

@hadoken101: I mean, NXT airs in Canada the same way the entire WWE Network airs on TV (They replaced NXT with Main Event on Sportsnet 360 when The Network launched).

They also made Surge cans with WCW guys on them.
