UPDATE: The Amalie Arena in Tampa has also released an update on the arena’s official Twitter account confirming that that the storm has dissipated and that Raw will “move forward as planned.”

ORIGINAL: For those worried about Tropical Storm Erika possibly posing a threat or potential cancellation to RAW and SmackDown on Monday and Tuesday, the storm was downgraded to an “open wave” while in the Caribbean near Cuba. The storm went over some land on Friday night and basically fell apart due to some strong wind shear and the system’s collision with the rugged mountains of Hispaniola. With that being said, there should be no danger to RAW being cancelled or postponed on Monday (August 31) in Tampa, Florida. Just a lot of rain and some wind for the Superstars traveling and the fans attending.
The locally advertised dark match main event will be John Cena, Roman Reigns, and Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins, Sheamus, and Bray Wyatt.
So, there is your local weather report for the Tampa, FL metro area. Signing off – Ryan Clark! 🙂
