-WWE Raw is in Baltimore, Maryland at Royal Farms Arena. One can only assume that the fifth match of the Sheamus vs. Cesaro best of seven series will air tonight. It’s a tough night in terms of competition for Raw, as ESPN’s annual NFL doubleheader will run opposite the show. 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 Baltimore, the live event in Fairfax, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
