Question WWE live show questions

I’m hoping to attend a live show next month and I had a few general questions. Sorry if these seem like dumb questions, but I’ve only been watching wrestling for a short time and the two live events I've attended were both pay per views.

The venues website has announced the main event and a list of superstars expected to appear. How often is the “expected to appear” list (somewhat) correct? I noticed that quite a few of the current bigger names from both raw and smack down are missing from the list. Specifically guys like Edge, Sheamus, Jack Swagger, Rey Mysterio and multiple others. It seems strange to me that there would be a live show without them.

According to wwe.com the event I’m looking to attend is both raw and smack down live, so it’s a double taping, right? When are shows like Superstars and NXT taped?

I know that the “Smackdown and Raw world tours” are house shows. Although this isn’t one, I was wondering what exactly sets house shows apart from live shows besides the fact that they aren’t televised. Other events are listed as a “super show.” What exactly is a supershow?

Re: WWE live show questions

As far as the live thing, what days are they? NXT usually tapes before SmackDown, but on rare occasion tapes before Raw. SmackDown and NXT are taped on Tuesday.

As far as the house shows, there are no pyro, titantron, and the wrestlers are less restricted as far as promos and crowd interaction.

My guess about a Supershow is when both rosters do a live show together.

Re: WWE live show questions

Interesting. The show is scheduled for September 18th (Saturday) in St. Louis. Looking at the wwe website it seems as if Saturdays are usually for house shows, but the event is clearly called "Raw and Smackdown Live." Hmm...

The relaxed house show atmosphere sounds like a lot of fun.
