-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Uniondale, New York at Nassau Coliseum with the “Superstar Shakeup” edition of Raw. Although it hasn’t been laid out clearly, it appears as though there will be trades between the brands and perhaps some call-ups from NXT. Shane McMahon even questioned who would get the first pick when he was on Talking Smack, but it does not appear as though they are doing a draft. Join me for live Raw as the show airs on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-There is now Smackdown house show tonight, presumably due to the shakeup.
-Dot Net Members will be listening to my Q&A audio show this afternoon (submit questions in our members’ forum) and my Raw audio review later tonight. Join us on the ad-free version of the Prowrestling.net website and special section of our free iPhone and Android apps by signing up for membership today via the Dot Net Members’ Signup Page.
