-WWE Raw will be taped today in London, England at The O2 London. The show is expected to feature the second round of the tag team tournament to determine the No. 1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship. There is not a live event today, so the full crew will be in London for Raw. I will not be covering the Raw Pre-Show notes since we should have the full lineup for Raw before it airs. However, I will be reviewing the Raw television show as it airs on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight’s WWE Raw and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown taping in London, as well as all live events on the European tour. If you are going to Raw or Smackdown and want to help us out with reports or live updates, 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 a dark main event advertised for tonight’s Raw.
