-We are looking for correspondents for the WWE, TNA, and ROH events this weekend. If you are going to any of the shows listed below and want to help, contact me at

-John Cena has been replaced on the weekend house show events by the returning Big Show. Cena was advertised, but he has been pulled from the shows after undergoing elbow surgery on Tuesday.

-WWE Raw is in State College, Pa. tonight at the Bryce Jordan Center with the following advertised matches: C.M. Punk vs. Big Show for the WWE Championship, Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara vs. The Miz and Tensai. Here's hoping the WWE crew is wise enough to avoid Jerry Sandusky related jokes tonight.

-WWE Smackdown is in Sarnia, Ontario on Saturday at the RBC Centre with the following list of matches: Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Hvt. Championship, Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth for the WWE Tag Titles.

-WWE Raw is in White Plains, New York at the Westchester County Center on Saturday with the following lineup: C.M. Punk will have Paul Heyman in his corner when he defends the WWE Championship against Big Show, plus Mysterio and Sin Cara vs. Miz and Tensai.

-WWE Smackdown is in London, Ontario at the Labatt Centre with the following advertised main event: Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett vs. Dolph Ziggler in a Triple Threat for the World Hvt. Championship.

-The WWE Raw crew is in Worcester, Mass. on Sunday at DCU Center with the same lineup as the White Plains event, including Paul Heyman appearing in Punk's corner.

-TNA is in Winston-Salem, N.C. tonight at Joel Coliseum Annex and in Raleigh, N.C. at the Red Hat Amphitheater on Saturday. There are no matches listed for either show. The advertised talent for both events is Austin Aries, Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, James Storm, Rob Van Dam, Samoa Joe, and Magnus. Dot Net's Chris Shore will be attending tonight's event and will have a report on Saturday morning. However, we always enjoy multiple perspectives on the shows, so you are still encouraged to send in a report on both events.

-Ring of Honor is taping television on Saturday in Baltimore, Maryland at DuBurns Arena. The show will feature the Survival of the Fittest tournament, plus ROH Champion Kevin Steen will defend the ROH Title against Rhett Titus. Shelton Benjamin will also be returning at the taping.

-WWE Hall of Famer Jack Brisco was born on this date in 1941. He died on February 1, 2010 at age 68 due to complications from open heart surgery.

-Ricky Morton of Rock-n-Roll Express fame is 56 today. He was born on September 21, 1956.

-There are no pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic this weekend.
