Much of the United States has been dealing with winter weather in recent days. WWE’s talent and crew have been impacted by the situation and Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com noted the following in regards to the issues surrounding the January 15th 2024 edition of RAW…
“There were countless issues with flights and weather for talents over the last 24 hours with some not being able to fly in and having to drive after being stranded at airports. A lot of talents are dealing with flight issues this morning just trying to get home from North Little Rock Arkansas with some driving right after Raw to other cities, hoping they’ll have a better chance of getting home not going to the North Little Rock or Hot Springs Airports.”
Via Instagram, Johnny Gargano documented the issues heading into RAW…
