STAMFORD, Conn. – Due to the impending blizzard in the Northeast and statewide travel bans, WWE has postponed tonight’s live event in Hartford and cancelled tomorrow night’s live event in Boston; however, WWE will emanate live tonight at 8 p.m. ET from its studios in the Stamford world headquarters.
Hartford, Conn., XL Center: Tickets for tonight’s show in Hartford will be honored for a SmackDown event this Thursday, January 29 that will air live on Syfy.
Boston, Mass., TD Garden: Fans with tickets to tomorrow’s event in Boston will have the option of either exchanging tickets for an upcoming WWE event on Saturday, June 27 or obtaining a refund at point of purchase.

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.
