As has been widely reported over the past week, a volcano eruption in Iceland has led to air travel stoppages in many countries including the United Kingdom and has left the WWE’s Superstars & Divas stranded in Europe. The stars have had to travel rather laboriously through other means [i.e. long bus journeys] to make their scheduled house shows over the past few days.
The latest setback however, is that the Raw Superstars are currently stranded in Northern Ireland and may not be able to travel back to the States in time for Monday’s live episode of Raw in New Jersey.
SmackDown’s travel crew have managed to fly back to the United States from Madrid, Spain, after the country lifted its stoppage on air travel. There is some talk that the SmackDown crew may instead perform on Monday’s Raw should the red brand not make it back in time.
It’s a sucky situation, but we’d to extend lots of gratitude and well wishes to all of the WWE Superstars and Divas. These international loops are gruelling as it is, but with the extra travel and chaos, it’s got to be even harder. Thank you to all the Superstars and Divas!
They say every cloud has a silver lining, that could very well be the case for the SmackDown Divas — hopefully getting a little time to shine on Monday’s live Raw. With some storyline progression on Monday and on Friday’s episode of SmackDown, hopefully we could see a Beth Phoenix vs Michelle McCool match at Extreme Rules.
