-WWE Raw is live tonight at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ. It's the final Raw before this Sunday's Hell in a Cell PPV, and WWE still has room on the card for more matches, and needs to add a little more to a few of the already announced matches. The tag team tournament finals are supposed to be tonight, as is Kane vs. Big Show. Join me for live coverage, starting at 7:00 p.m. CT.

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

The advertised dark match main event is CM Punk vs. Ryback in the "largest lumberjack match in WWE history." Punk and Ryback worked lumberjack matches all weekend, so it will be interesting to see what makes this one different.

-Chavo Guerrero Jr. (a/k/a Salvador Guerrero IV) turned 42 on Saturday, October 20. The nephew of the late Eddie Guerrero, Chavo is currently one half of the TNA Tag Team Champions along with Hernandez.

-Former WCW/WWE Superstar Scott Hall turned 54 on Saturday, October 20. Hall was one half of the Outsiders and founding member of the NWO in WCW. He has battled with addiction issues his entire career that have ruined his health, but has recently seemed to be in better condition accompanying his son, Cody Hall, to the ring on the independent circuit.

-WWE Hall of Famer Pedro Morales turns 70 today. Morales became the first ever WWF Triple Crown winner (holding all three major titles) when he won the Intercontinental Championship in 1980 from Ken Patera. Morales was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1995.

-Current TNA producer/agent D'Lo Brown (a/k/a Accie Connor) turns 42 today. D'Lo made a name for himself in WWE in the late 1990s-early 2000s, but his most infamous moment came on October 5, 1999 when D'Lo botched his running powerbomb on Darren Drozdov (a/k/a Droz) due to Droz's baggy shirt and broke Droz's neck, leaving him a quadriplegic, though he has regained some mobility in his upper body.

-The AWA Wrestling show on ESPN Classic airs at 8:00 p.m. CT tonight. The lineup features The Lumberjacks vs. Burton & Bennett; Texas Hangmen vs. Carlson & Evans; The Trooper vs. Magnum; and Sgt. Slaughter vs. Jonnie Stewart.

-The UWF has two back to back half hour shows starting at 9:00 p.m. CT. The listings mention Mr. Wonderful, Mr. Death, and The Black Hearts w/Luna in the main events, but have no actual match listings
