There are no WWE house shows scheduled for this weekend. With Saturday being the date of UFC 81 (which will headline former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir) and Sunday being the Superbowl it makes sense to give the talent a weekend off.

WWE will be taping two weeks of RAW this coming Monday at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. One will be broadcast on tape delay later that evening while the other show will air on February 11th when the RAW superstars are overseas in Japan.

The RAW brand will then head to Alaska on Wednesday, February 6th to hold a show at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks, Alaska. The next night they will have a show at the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage, Alaska with the main event being WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. the winner of a 15-man Battle Royal that will contain Chris Jericho, Umaga, Jeff Hardy, Mr. Kennedy and others.

The SmackDown/ECW crews will be doing tapings on Tuesday, February 5th at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. The next night both crews will head to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas to tape the February 12th edition of ECW and the February 15th edition of SmackDown.

All WWE brands will then be on International tours with SmackDown/ECW going to Mexico, Ecuador, and Chile, while the RAW brand goes to South Korea and Japan.
