WWE Defends Decision To Hold Show Despite Weather Warnings



World Wrestling Entertainment spokesman Adam Hopkins responded to Newsday.com writer Alfonso Castillo’s article questioning the company’s decision to not postpone its Sunday night live event at Madison Square Garden, despite forecasts of a severe blizzard and warnings by the Long Island Rail Road that it would suspend service if the weather became too severe.

“WWE tries its best not to let down our fans due to the weather,” Hopkins said.

“After weighing several factors and consulting with Madison Square Garden management, The Garden was in favor of us running the event as they have a good track record of doing so during inclement weather, rarely postponing them.

“Public transportation was running, and this is a show in which a significant amount of ticket holders live in the city. All top WWE Talent had made it in to New York for the event.”

Hopkins added that the event drew 13,600 people, “which was more than those that attended the respective Islanders and Devils games combined last night (according to attendance numbers on the boxscores of the team’s official websites).”
