Dual RAW/SmackDown! Tapings, More On Steamboat-WWE; & More

Ryan Clark

– For the first time ever, WWE will be taping Raw and Smackdown on 1/31/05 in San Jose, California at The HP Pavilion. The WWE.com blurb for the show reads, “For the First Time Ever: 2 Shows-1 Night; ALL of the WWE Superstars Under One Roof! Come see all the fallout from the Royal Rumble!” as it’s the day after the PPV. It will be interesting to see how that comes off. They will be taping Raw live at 6 PM (9 PM Eastern) and then begin taping Smackdown after Raw goes off the air and they change the setup.

– Tickets for the WWE 2005 Hall of Fame Ceremony, scheduled to be held at the Universal City Amphitheatre on Saturday 4/2/05, went on sale yesterday with a special Internet pre-sale. If anyone wants to order tickets to the evening, they range from $85-$35. The password is LEGEND.

– Former NWA champion Ricky Steamboat will be signing with WWE to work as a road agent shortly, if he hasn’t already. It’s unclear whether he’ll keep working with Ring of Honor, but if he goes on the road fulltime, it will be hard for him to make any commitments to them. Steamboat is a great person for the workers to learn from, as he did a great job in ROH.
