WWE's Mexico Tour Begins: Results, Fear Of Drug Cartels, Show Rescheduled

January 12, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

– WWE kicked off their tour in Monterrey, Mexico last night with a RAW brand show. Nothing too eventful happened, but CM Punk teamed with John Morrison to defeat The Miz and R-Truth. In the main event, John Cena defeated WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio by disqualification.

– It’s worth noting that WWE is taking extra precautions with their tour buses this week for fear of crime from Mexico’s drug cartels.

– WWE moved the SmackDown! live event in Veracruz, Mexico on October 15th up to 1pm so the top SmackDown stars are able to appear at the RAW TV tapings at 8pm that night in Mexico City.

– There was some speculation that the SmackDown stars may not be appearing on next week’s RAW because of the scheduling. The RAW stars will still be able to appear on SmackDown if needed because their scheduled don’t conflict when SmackDown tapes on Sunday.
