From Good Ol' John Pollock:

Due to the weather conditions and travel ban issued in the state of Connetcicut, the WWE will not be going ahead with a live edition of Raw tonight from the XL Center in Hartford.

The WWE has yet to announce it officially but The LAW has confirmed that talent has been told the taping is off and to stay where they are.

The Smackdown tapings in Boston are in jeopardy but to our knowledge, no decision has been made for Tuesday night's tapings.

The LAW has also been told that a three-hour show will air from the WWE studios in Stamford and there may be some angles shot on the show tonight.

The WWE has informed us that a statement will be issued very shortly.

@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.

@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.
