By Jason Powell

-We are looking for correspondents for the following ROH event listed below, as well as the NXT events that we listed yesterday. If you are attending a show and want to help, send your report (or basic results) to dotnetjason@gmail.com

-There are no WWE weekend events as the crew gets a chance to rest coming out of the insanity that is the WrestleMania weekend. Raw is Uniondale, New York on Monday, and Smackdown is in Boston, Massachusetts on Tuesday. There is not a Smackdown house show on Monday, presumably due to the “Superstar Shakeup” that has been announced for Raw.

-Ring of Honor is taping television in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday at the William J. Myers Pavilion. The has an early 2 p.m. ET start time. The promotion has yet to announce any matches for this show or the upcoming live events for April, but I assume that will change soon.

-The next Impact Wrestling taping dates are April 20-23 in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios.

-The next Evolve shows are April 22 in Queens, New York and April 23 in Brooklyn, New York. These shows will feature the final Evolve appearances of Drew Galloway, who is NXT bound as Drew McIntyre.
