Can someone clear up this Raw in the UK thing

I just saw in the live thread that Raw is taped in Manchester tonight lol.

I'm a bit out the loop here so can someone catch me up because last I heard Raw was still taking place in Glasgow on Monday night. What happened with that?

WWE canceled the Glasgow taping making it a Raw house show instead and decided to tape both Raw and SD in Manchester for unknown reasons.

That's bullshit from them but I expect nothing different. Hope the Glasgow crowd kicked up hell about it and asked for refunds like I'd be doing, such a slimey thing to do.

Anyway the fact that it's tales on Friday will give people reason not to watch on Monday. I rarely watch raw these days anyway so I don't even need that as a reason.

Nah no way, Glasgow always sells out. A few years ago they sold out in the first day.

The Hydro holds around 13k. That's more than most Raws in 2019 will get.

The rumour back when it was cancelled was Saudi Arabia but I fail to see how that's the case when the Saudi show was last Thursday. My guess is that they thought it would of been cheaper to tape RAW and SD in Manchester than move the set further up north for Monday.

When it was originally booked for RAW ticket sales were pretty good from what I remember, it was only when they made the switch to a house show and offered refunds that all of a sudden ticket sales became very low, mainly because they still kept the more expensive TV taping ticket prices for a bloody house show.

Silly because this could of been one of the few RAW shows that sold out this year.
