That’s a long one. If there is one major complaint about WWE TV, there are some universally agreed about problems. One of them is that there is too much television, with five hours alone between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live every single week. That is a lot of television to cover and it just never stops. Coming up though, it is going to get even worse for one night.

According to the Manchester Evening News Arena, both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live will be taking place on Friday November 8. This seems to be the Monday Night Raw which was moved from Glasgow, Scotland on November 11, which needed to be moved to accommodate the upcoming Saudi Arabia show. The shows will be taped back to back, meaning a five hour television taping.

Manchester has a long history in the first place. Check out this match from over twenty years ago:

Opinion: I’m sure the Glasgow fans are thrilled with this. Europe rarely gets any major events in the first place and now they’re being told that they aren’t important enough to get a television taping because the Saudi Arabian shows are what matter. Couple that with Manchester now having a five hour event to make their evening rather long and it’s just a big mess all around.

Which city gets it worse out of this? What do you expect to be happening by November? Let us know in the comments below.
