-WWE Raw is in Brooklyn, New York at Barclays Center with the night after SummerSlam edition. New WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor will appear. For what it’s worth, Brock Lesnar is not advertised on the WWE live events page, nor on the arena website, but he has appeared on some of the “night after” shows without being advertised in the past. 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.
-Prowrestling.net Live is back today at 3CT/4ET taking your calls regarding SummerSlam weekend and all things pro wrestling. Will Pruett will be my co-host and we are looking forward to hearing from you.
