The Sheffield, UK show had sort of a skeleton crew, because the WWF had separate crew at home in the States. The Sheffield show was on a Sunday and there was another week of UK shows afterwards. The crew back home had a live Raw the next night in Poughkeepsie, NY at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center with the following Monday's Raw taped that night. 

This card had Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Razor Ramon, the Steiners, Money Inc., Tatanka, Giant Gonzalez, Bam Bigelow, Papa Shango, Virgil, and Mike Shaw in his one and only appearance as Friar Ferguson among the pushed talent. Steve Keirn was there doing the Doink gimmick.

In an odd switch, by the time the next live Raw aired on 4/26/93, the Sheffield crew was at the Manhattan Center for that live shoot and a taping of the next week's show while the Poughkeepsie crew was on its own European tour that included live televised cards from Barcelona and Milan that aired on TV networks in those countries.
