Post-WWE Updates on Alberto Del Rio, What’s Next for Scott Hall’s Son, SmackDown Move

– There’s no word yet on how WWE SmackDown moving to Thursday nights will affect international deals. Australia has been the first country to get SmackDown each week but now it appears Canada will get it first as it will be airing on Sportsnet 360 on Wednesday nights.

– As noted, Alberto Del Rio’s settlement with WWE is going to allow him to work for AAA’s Lucha Underground promotion in 2015. The next set of tapings begin January 17th so he should start then. Del Rio is proving to be a draw outside of WWE as he recently helped sell out an 8,000 seat arena in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico for a AAA live event.

– Scott Hall’s son Cody Hall is moving to Japan soon to train at the New Japan Pro Wrestling dojo.

    Probably wont make a lot of difference with international tv broadcasts as they dont write their schedules around WWE. If a move of date happens it will be because they can. In the UK it is broadcast on the same day as the USA but obviously is broadcast first due to the time difference.
    Its not a live show, so it will be fit into whatever slot is best suited to it.
    Maybe it will move to Thurs night, maybe it wont … it makes no difference.
