-- WWE announced the U.K. dates for the next European tour (Wrestlemania Revenge tour) in April 2012:
* Saturday April 14th - WWE Smackdown - Manchester M.E.N. Arena
* Sunday April 15th - WWE Raw - Nottingham
* Monday April 16th - WWE Raw TV tapings - London at the O2 Arena
* Tuesday April 17th - WWE Smackdown TV tapings - London at the O2 Arena
* Wednesday April 18th - WWE Smackdown - Sheffield
* Thursday April 19th - WWE Smackdown - Cardiff
* Friday April 20th - WWE Smackdown - Newcastle
* Saturday April 21st - WWE Smackdown - Glasgow
For some reason, there isn't many Raw U.K. tour dates listed. I'm presuming the Raw crew will be working elsewhere in Europe for most of that week.
-- Regarding your Mick Foley comment in the ' Foley announces WWE house show appearances' story on the site, regarding his possible participation in the Raw & Smackdown TV tapings this week, given that he will be in Birmingham & Newcastle on the respective nights at the times of the tapings - there is little chance of him being able to be rushed from one show to the tapings. Birmingham to Liverpool by car is a 2 hour journey, and Newcastle to Liverpool is even longer, a 2 and a half/3 hour journey. I suppose technically he could work the opener in Birmingham then be rushed by car to be in Liverpool for the closing moments of Raw, but that seems highly unlikely. Newcastle to the Smackdown taping would be virtually impossible, time wise.
