-Prowrestling.net Live returns today with a special start time of 4CT/5ET. Will Pruett and I will be taking your calls at PWAudio.net.
-WWE Raw will be held tonight in New Orleans, Louisiana at Smoothie King Center with the first Raw after WrestleMania 34. For what it’s worth, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are not advertised for this event and neither is Ronda Rousey. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.
-WWE will be releasing the new WWE Network subscriber count today. They will be holding a conference call at 3CT/4ET to discuss the number.
-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Main Event tapings that will be held prior to WWE Raw in New Orleans, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live in New Orleans. 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
-There are no advertised dark matches for tonight’s Raw, which is good considering that the company hasn’t delivered their advertised Raw dark main events for several weeks.

-Bianca Belair is 29.
-Ultimate Warrior (born James Hellwig) died of a heart attack at age 54 on April 8, 2014.
