-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Atlanta, Georgia at Philips Arena with the final Raw before WrestleMania 34. WWE is advertising a face-to-face exchange involving Ronda Rousey, Kurt Angle, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon, plus Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Knoxville, Tennessee at Knoxville Civic Coliseum tonight with the following advertised matches: AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owen and Sami Zayn in a handicap match, Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev and Aiden English, Bobby Roode vs. Baron Corbin, The Usos vs. New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable in a Triple Threat for the Smackdown Tag Titles. It’s worth noting that the advertising on the arena website is dated to the point that Roode is listed as U.S. Champion.
-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Main Event tapings that will be held prior to WWE Raw in Atlanta, the Smackdown house show in Knoxville, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live in Nashville. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
-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 the last two Raw television events and did not take place as advertised.
