-WWE Raw will be held in Cleveland, Ohio tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. The show features the fallout from last night's Night of Champions pay-per-view, and Dusty Rhodes was invited by Stephanie McMahon for a business proposition. Join me for live coverage of Raw as the show airs on USA Network tonight beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw in Cleveland, Ohio and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping in Cincinnati, Ohio. If you are going to one these shows and want to help, contact me right away at

Vachon was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2010 by Pat Patterson.
