Confirmed Raw Superstars Will Miss Raw

Tasha GriebelContributor IApril 18, 2010

This has be speculated or a couple of days now but it has now been comfired that the WWE Raw superstars will not be able to make it back in time to film Raw tomorrow night.

An article from wrestling radio:-Flights across UK controlled airspace will remain in place until at least 7pm Monday Night (GMT), air traffic control company NATS said (National Air Traffic Sevice)

National Air Traffic Service (Nats) said: "Based on the latest information from the Met Office, Nats advises the current restrictions across UK controlled airspace remain in place until at least 7pm on Monday 19 April."

EasyJet  announced overnight it was cancelling flights to and from northern Europe today "British Airways" said it would cancel flights on Monday while "bmi" said there would be no departures from Heathrow tomorrow." Thomson" and "Virgin" have cancelled the majority of their flights until Monday.

Monday night Raw is more then likely to feature superstars from NXT & Smackdown, While Raw Superstar Triple H is said to be one of the few who are ready for the show.

This has meant that staff from the Raw Brand, including John Cena, Randy Orton and Batista, are currently stranded in Northern Ireland after wrestling a show in Belfast, the last on their current UK tour.

WWE could potentially simply book a show featuring all Smackdown superstars and the rookies of NXT. They are unlikely to screen a rerun, highlights packages or to cancel the event entirely, because it would gift a large potential audience to TNA, who have a live show following up their Lockdown Pay Per View.

The latest plan is for the RAW guys to find a studio in Belfast and record some interviews talking about Extreme Rules, while running RAW with mostly SmackDown! talent. Also WWE right now is worried about finding a way to get  certain superstars back in time for Extreme Rules.

It should also be stated that WWE is giving full refunds to ticket holders of Monday's Raw from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey that request them as it looks like the Raw talent roster will not make it back for the show. We've received word from readers that planned on attending but requested refunds when they found out the talent situation. Their requests were processed

~Update~ has posted a news story saying: WWE calls on “MacGruber” as SmackDown invades Monday Night Raw to read the full story go here

What does this mean for Tuesdays taping of smackdown will we have a complete Smackdown week.
