— WWE recently canceled the 10/17 house show scheduled in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The public reason given for the cancellation came in the form of a local promotion saying that they didn’t realize they booked an outdoor stadium and were afraid of weather spoiling the event. However, the real reason the show was canceled is because WWE sold less than 500 tickets so far, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. There has been talk of running a second show in Arena Monterrey, where WWE is running the night before.
