    It sucks for fans here in Colorado but the fires have been burning in the area for the last month from where I live in Fort Collins you can see the heavy smoke from the fires up in the mountians.

      Littleton, co . It’s bad but understandable

  • yesyesyes

    I live in C.Springs but I only got tickets for the raw show at Pepsi Center. The fire is now 70% contained here, but I understand wwe canceling since the world arena isnt too far from where the smoke is coming from.

    Think that WWE should at least reschedule a house show or something at World Arena and work with the American Red Cross so that wrestlers and fans alike can donate to help those affected by the wildfire there.

    As a resident of Colorado springs and WWE fan not to mention a ticket holder for the cancelled event it was a disappointment with everything the springs has gone through it would’ve been nice to have a distraction. I really think it would’ve been a great opportunity to start the healing process but hey what do I know

    It sucks that Colorado springs won’t host smack down. But at least it’s still in Colorado.
