-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Omaha, Nebraska at Century Link Center. WWE has not advertised anything for tonight’s show. If this were Smackdown, at least we’d know the talkshow segment. 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 Omaha and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown taping in Des Moines, Iowa. If you are going to Raw or Smackdown and want to help us out with reports or live updates, contact me at email@example.com
-Dot Net Members are listening to the ROH Global Wars audio review that I recorded after the show on Sunday night.
