-WWE Raw takes place tonight in Chicago, Illinois at Allstate Arena. Shane McMahon is advertised and one can only assume that he will have more to say than Undertaker did last week. 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 Chicago and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown television taping in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 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.
