WWE crew gets a break before a lengthy European tour (correspondents needed), Night of Superstars in Virginia, Mick Foley in Arizona, Mike Von Erich note
By Jason Powell
-It's a well deserved weekend off for the WWE crew as far as live events go following the busy WrestleMania week. Raw takes place on Monday in Greenville, S.C. at the Bi Lo Center, and Tuesday's Smackdown taping will be held in Knoxville, Tennessee. They better enjoy their weekend at home because they will be heading overseas for the European tour that begins on Wednesday with a Raw show in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and the Smackdow crew kicks off Thursday in Glasgow, Scotland. The Raw brand will be overseas until the April 29 edition of Raw in Columbus, and Smackdown is back in the United States on April 30 in Detroit.
-We are looking for correspondents for all of the WWE Raw and Smackdown events, and all of the live event European dates, as well as the Night of Champions event listed below. If you are going to any of these events and want to help, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-The Night of Superstars event takes place on Saturday in Waynesboro, Va. at Waynesboro High School. The event features Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, Jake Roberts, The Rock-n-Roll Express, Robbie E, Robbie T, Miss Tessmacher, Cliff Compton, The Barbarian, and many more. There is also a Mick Foley comedy show and meet and greet event at Louis Spillman Auditorium. Foley will be appearing at the wrestling show for a VIP Meet and Greet.

-WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is in Flagstaff, Arizona at the Orpheum Theater tonight. For more details on the show, visit Orpheumpresents.inticketing.com.
-This will actually be one of the slowest weekends of the year as far as live events go. There are no TNA events this weekend to followup last night's television event in Corpus Christi, Texas. The company's next show will be April 19 in Massena, New York.
-The Ring of Honor crew is off until the May 4 Border Wars iPPV event in Toronto, Ontario and the television taping the next night.
-Dragon Gate USA and Evolve have no new dates listed on their website.
-The late Mike Von Erick (a/k/a Michael Adkisson) died on this date in 1987. He took his own life when he overdosed on Placidyl and combined it with alcohol.
