WWE Cancels Upcoming SmackDown Taping, House Show
The SmackDown taping had just had its pre-sale
Two different upcoming WWE events were officially scrapped on Friday, one of them a TV taping.
The September 17 SmackDown taping at Atlanta's State Farm Arena has been cancelled. Tickets for the event went on pre-sale the previous day, while general sales were expected to begin Friday morning at 10 am.
The venue's website has a posted notice confirming the cancellation, with refund information.
No new location has been announced for the September 17 event. The SmackDown brand is going on a tour of the United Kingdom, with the first event coming on Sunday, September 19.
In addition, a WWE "Supershow" event for Sunday, August 8 at Gainesville, FL's O'Connell Center has been cancelled, per a notice from the venue's website.
No reason has been given for the cancellation.
The event was part of a four-show run in Florida, beginning with SmackDown in Tampa on that Friday, a dual-brand house show in Fort Myers Saturday, the Gainsville card, and then Raw in Orlando on Monday.
WWE returned to the road on Friday night, holding SmackDown at the Toyota Center in Houston.
