-This is the last full day of our 5th Birthday Sale for Dot Net Membership. Dot Net Members are currently listening to the 79-minute audio review of WWE Elimination Chamber, and they will also be listening to my audio review of WWE Raw later tonight. Take advantage of the special pricing of $5 for one month, $30 for six months, and just $55 for a full year of membership. To access the coupon codes needed to take advantage of this sale, visit the Dot Net Birthday Sale Page.

-WWE Raw takes place tonight in Lafayette, La. at the Cajundome. The Rock is advertised for tonight's show, but he is not advertised for Smackdown or next week's Raw. It should be an eventful show with fallout from Elimination Chamber and, more importantly, the hype for WrestleMania 29 should kick in. Join me for live coverage of WWE Raw as the show airs on USA Network tonight at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-WWE will be making a big announcement today via live stream. It is expected to be the official announcement that WrestleMania 30 will be held at the Superdome in New Orleans, La. Vince McMahon, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, The Rock, and John Cena are advertised for the live stream, which will air on the WWE website, Youtube, and Facebook beginning at 11:00 a.m. CT. I will be covering the live stream as it airs today, so join us for coverage if you can't watch the live stream.

-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw event and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown television show in Biloxi, Mississippi. If you are going to either show and want to help, contact me at

-Retired pro wrestler Raymond Rougeau is 58 today. He was born on February 18, 1955. His Wikipedia page states that he owns income management properties and has been active in city council politics since 2002. He made news in 2011 when he saved the live of a 77 year-old hunting friend. The man was lost in the woods and Rougeau flew his own plane to find the man after a police rescue was unsuccessful.

-The advertised dark main event for tonight's WWE Raw television show is John Cena and Ryback vs. C.M. Punk and Dolph Ziggler.

-The late Kerry Von Erich (a/k/a Kerry Adkisson) died on this date in 1993. He took his own life at the family ranch in Denton County, Texas.

-For those who missed it on Sunday, Ricardo Rodriguez (a/k/a Jesus Rodriguez) turned 27 on Sunday. He was born on February 17, 1986.
