Breaking: Riot in Jeopardy!

Recommended Posts

According to sources at Manchester Airport in the United Kingdom, OCW's live televised Riot show could be cancelled due to OCW not being able to get talent into the UK. This is caused by a lack of fuel at Manchester Airport, after a problem was discovered with the direct fuel flow from Essar refinery at Stanlow near Ellesmere Port - resulting in several airlines diverting or cancelling their flights.

 

Russell Craig, Head of Communications for Manchester Airport, said the majority of passengers and flights would not be affected, but some disruption was possible.

"We are pretty certain there will be some cases where flights, certainly tonight and tomorrow morning, will be cancelled, diverted to other airports or delayed," he said.

OCW Riot is scheduled to take place at the Manchester Arena, in the centre of Manchester, roughly 8 miles from the airport. OCW officials remain hopeful that the show will go on - even if it means that some talent will miss the event. This isn't a problem for staff, as they arrived on Monday morning, but could be problematic for several arriving Wrestlers.

 

As of right now, Manchester Arena are still promoting the show, and those with Tickets have been reassured that there are enough OCW wrestlers on hand to provide them with a show.

 

Update: OCWFED.com can confirm that OCW Champion Tiberius Dupree, OCW International Champion Dimsmore and Manchester native Paul Pugh are all in the City, confirmed via their twitter feeds. All three are advertised locally as appearing in the Main Event tomorrow night.

There's something wrong here... I'll point it out. Talent INTO the UK, the UK is the airport without fuel... It'd be getting us home from Manchester that'd be the issue, though I'm sure we could afford a coach to an airport with fuel?

 

Planes operate to a schedule of refuelling. If they cannot refuel at an airport, they may choose to divert in order to meet their next flight out. When a plane is on a runway, it is cleaned and refuelled. If it can't refuel, it won't set off from the airport it is due to depart, because it wouldn't be able to leave the destination airport until the fuel problem is rectified. Costing the company money, as that plane is stranded away from base. Much better not to send it in the first place.

When I read the thread's title I was hoping it was going to be Riot talent guest starring on Jeopardy, now I'm slightly dissapointed in what it actually turned out to be, could be interesting... I guess.

Dont they just divert if already in the air? Can't really think of any OCW talent that would need a later flight? Tho I guess its a nice fictional universe explanation for Reese's illness affecting Riot.

 

Wow. You're really going out of your way to be right here aren't you?

 

If a plane is mid flight, it will be diverted. If a Plane has yet to leave (popular US places that fly to Manchester include Philly, Vegas [via Philly], Florida and New York). Roughly 8 hours a flight (more for connecting flights from Philly). At the time of posting, Riot was atleast 29 hours away (assuming the show started roughly 8pm Local time). Since most of the talent is still in the US due to their Riot and Asylum commitments, they'd (probably) be given time off to spend at home, due to the fact they're about to embark on an overseas tour, and it's a concession that any big corporation would allow. Therefore it's not implausible that, since their next show commitment is Riot on Thursday night in Manchester, they'd fly late on Tuesday/Early Wednesday US time. Since Manchester Airport was aware of the problem before the press were, it's highly likely that the airlines all had that information hours before anybody else. If you left New York for example (depending on timezones obviously this would change) at 8am on Wednesday morning, you'd arrive at 20:00 BST - 2 hours after the airport had officially "Run out of fuel". Since the news arrived in press rooms around the country at roughly 13:00 BST, it's safe to assume that the airlines were aware of the problem even earlier than that, meaning that a judgement call would have to be made. Cancel the flight, and honour the tickets of those affected either later that day when the problem was rectified (via a delayed flight) and not have to spend any extra money, or send the plane, divert it to a different airport (which would already be accepting flights from europe/elsewhere that had been diverted), provide each passenger with a minibus/taxi/some other means of travel to their destination as a courtesy (at a large cost) and not be able to run your normal service from Manchester airport later in the day (although delayed). It makes much better economic sense to hold off on sending the plane initially - deal with the passengers you already have ready to fly, than to deal with 2 sets of angry passengers at both ends.

 

Also it's fictional.
