WWE's India Tour Down To One Show, NXT Going On The Road

-- WWE's tour of India is down to one stop.

The Times of India confirmed today that WWE's planned December 8th house show at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi has been canceled, with the December 9th date at the venue now being branded as a "Supershow."

In a match that was set up a few days ago, Triple H vs. Jinder Mahal has been announced as the main event. Mahal will be the only SmackDown representation on what is otherwise a Raw house show.

While ticket sales likely played a factor, WWE put out a statement saying that the decision to reduce the tour from two shows to one was to better serve the needs of their fans in the country: "To meet the requests of WWE fans in India, and deliver the biggest main event in the country's history, WWE is combining two nights of family-friendly action into a one-night only, exclusive Supershow."

Jeet Rama & Kishan Raftar, who are Performance Center trainees from India, will now be wrestling in their home country as they face Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas. Kevin Owens will no longer be appearing on the tour after originally being scheduled to challenge for Mahal's WWE Championship before he dropped it to AJ Styles.

Those who bought tickets to the canceled show can exchange them for the next night or receive a refund.

The Raw roster will also be in Abu Dhabi on December 7th before heading to India.

-- NXT is going on the road for its first few television tapings of 2018.

The Center Stage Theater in Atlanta, Georgia, which used to be home to WCW Saturday Night, will host NXT TV tapings on January 4th, February 1st, and February 2nd. Tickets for the shows are set to go on sale on December 1st at 10 a.m. Eastern time.

With those shows taking place in Atlanta, it isn't clear if NXT plans to tape at venues other than Full Sail University more often next year.

After this weekend's TakeOver: War Games event in Houston, Texas, the next set of episodes will be filmed at Full Sail on November 29th as NXT begins the build to its Royal Rumble weekend special. Pete Dunne defending the WWE United Kingdom Championship against Johnny Gargano will take place on Saturday prior to the TakeOver broadcast, with that match likely to air in the coming weeks.

A fan from India told Alvarez on Observer Live that the reason the cancelled show didn't sell was because WWE was charging "WrestleMania-level" prices for tickets.

Nope. They just moved the show to place whee they can get away with charging such an outrageous price.
