Multiple WWE Stars Not At Raw Tonight, Ken Shamrock No-Shows Indy Match, WWE Returns To Toronto, Jim Ross

– The Miz, R-Truth, Layla, Eve and WWE CEO Vince McMahon will not be on hand for tonight’s Raw in Lafayette, Louisiana, since they are overseas visiting U.S. troops as part of a handshake tour. The group visited military bases in Bahrain today.

– Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ken Shamrock no-showed his scheduled appearance for AAW Wrestling on Saturday in Merrionette Park, Illinois. He was advertised to face Sami Callihan. The promotion released the following message Sunday via Twitter regarding his absence: “Everyone was on edge all day yesterday regarding Shamrock. Here’s the story behind it. Ken canceled his plane ticket yesterday and didn’t inform his agent or AAW staff. Classic definition of a no show.”

– WWE will hold a live event at Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on March 1, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. will hold a pre-sale beginning December 14, 2012 at 10:00 a.m.

– Jim Ross remarked via Twitter of Raw returning to his former stomping grounds tonight: “#WWE #RAW Lafayette, La Mon night. Memories of Ernie ‘Big Cat’ Ladd, weekly, Mid South live events, rowdy, villain hating fans, & gr8 food.” He added that he will not be on hand for the show.

    Thats cool, even though these guys aren’t main eventers and stuff the troops probably feel great knowing celebs care enough to come visit them.

    • Randy James Crawford

      The Miz use to be a main eventer, Vince McMahon is the Owner, CEO and Chairman so yeah big names with those 2.

        Miz was a main eventer as was Truth, no denying it but really neither was to memorable, if Miz didn’t shove the WM thing in our face all the time, would you really remember?

          Cena would :)

          I have to agree with you on this. Miz didn’t have a memorable main event run. I mean he was in one of the worst feuds/matches in WrestleMania history. I’d remember for sure, but I wouldn’t care.

  • pwnez

    I’m actually kinda disappointed Miz won’t be on raw; his face turn has me curious. I couldn’t care less about R-Truth and the others.

    FYI We are in Bray Wyatt’s hometown tonight.

    eh, not a big loss there. WWE has enough star power for tonight, but can they deliver? That is the question.

    I guess when you’re the “Most Dangerous Man,” you can show up when you want, and give no reason for it. I still like Ken Shamrock.
