-The final WWE Raw of 2016 is tonight Chicago, Illinois at Allstate Arena. It will be interesting to see whether the company is in holiday mode or if they deliver a straight forward show. My guess is the latter given that they are in Chicago. Join me for live Raw as the show airs on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in New York, New York at Madison Square Garden tonight. Check the main page shortly for the full lineup.
