The WWE announced on Friday that the SmackDown brand live event house show scheduled for the Monday immediately after the Royal Rumble is canceled, leading to rumors swirling about what that could mean for RAW.
Though the official announcement states that it the show at the Tucson Convention Center was called off due to production issues, some speculation has started that it could be either low ticket sales or perhaps WWE wants the entire roster available for Monday Night RAW that week at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. One potential explanation could be a Superstar Shakeup, but nothing has been confirmed to that end.
Here is the official announcement:
