-WWE Raw takes place tonight in Birmingham, Alabama at Legacy Arena. Brock Lesnar is advertised and thus one can only assume that means Paul Heyman will be accompanying him. Join me for live coverage of Raw beginning with Raw Pre-Show notes as that show streams on WWE Network at 6:30 p.m. CT, and stick around for my actual live review as Raw airs on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight’s WWE Raw in Birmingham and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown television taping in Memphis, Tennessee. If you are going to Raw, Smackdown, or any upcoming show and want to help us out with reports on the shows or live updates from tapings, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
-Dot Net Members will be listening to my WWE Raw audio review later tonight and my Q&A audio show this afternoon. Join us on the ad-free version of the website and special section of our free iPhone and Android apps by signing up for membership today via the Dot Net Members’ Signup Page.
-There is not an advertised dark main event for Raw listed on the arena website..
