-Today is Labor Day in the United States, so the updates will not be as frequent throughout the day as they normally would be on a Monday. However, everything will go back to normal this evening with Raw coverage.
-WWE Raw is in Kansas City, Missouri at Sprint Center Arena for the Labor Day edition of Raw. New WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens will appear, and we should get followup to Triple H’s interference that led to Owens winning the title. 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 Kansas City and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live in Lincoln, Nebraska. 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
-WWE is not holding a Smackdown live event tonight as they did last Monday.
-There is not an advertised dark main event for tonight’s Raw on the Sprint Center Arena website.
