I saw a few weeks ago while watching RAW that the May 5th show would be live from Halifax. Tonight on Raw, however, they ran a promo that said SmackDown would be there on May 6th. A quick check of the Live Events calendar confirms this.

Why would they run Halifax on back-to-back nights? RAW hasn't been there since the summer of '97 (granted, it was a SUPER-hot crowd that night.) It's a city of 350-400,000 with a 10,000 seat arena...does this seem odd to anyone else? True, the crew seems to leave for Europe for a four-night tour soon after that...maybe it's just me.

And before anyone starts, I was born and raised in Halifax...that's why I'm curious.

All I know is the Halifaxians were hardcore last time WWE was there in 1997. That was one of the best RAWs of all time hands down. And everytime they do a quick sell-out, they run back because it isn't happening much these days.

WWE is having trouble selling arenas out, so (logically) go to a place that hasn't had TV events in years, and you're going to get two sellout SUPERHOT crowds. Canadian crowds are usually better than American crowds anyway (ducks flames), even the American cities that also only rarely get shows.

On the Hogan DVD, there's an SNME match from 1990 when he kicks out of the Perfect Plex. I don't remember the announcers saying that was the first time it happened, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was. It certainly beats Bret at SummerSlam 91.
