-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Dallas, Texas at American Airlines Center tonight. Vince McMahon gave his word that Brock Lesnar would appear, though it’s unknown whether Roman Reigns will appear on the television show due to his storyline suspension. Ronda Rousey is also advertised. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Cedar Park, Texas at H-E-B Center tonight with the following advertised matches: AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin in a four-way for the WWE Championship, and Bobby Roode vs. Jinder Mahal, Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev and Aiden English, and Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Naomi vs. Riott Squad.
-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Main Event tapings that will be held prior to WWE Raw in Dallas, the Smackdown house show in Cedar Park, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live in Dallas. If you are going to Raw, Smackdown, or an upcoming live event and want to help us out with off-air match result details, contact me at email@example.com
-The advertised dark main event for tonight’s Raw is John Cena, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Braun Strowman vs. Kane, The Miz, Sheamus, and Cesaro. The same match was advertised for last week’s Raw in Detroit and did not take place as advertised.
