-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Hartford, Connecticut at XL Center with the first night of the WWE Superstar Shakeup. WWE is also advertising Sasha Banks vs. Bayley, and Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy vs. The Revival with the winning team advancing to face Sheamus and Cesaro for the vacant Raw Tag Titles at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.
-There is not a WWE Smackdown event tonight due to the Superstar Shakeup. Wrestlers from Smackdown will be at tonight’s Raw. It could be a little tricky for Raw wrestlers appearing at Smackdown due to the South African house show on Wednesday.
-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Main Event tapings that will be held prior to WWE Raw in Hartford and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live in Providence, Rhode Island. 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 Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Braun Strowman vs. The Miz, Sheamus, and Cesaro. It’s worth noting that it’s been several weeks since Raw actually followed through with its advertised dark match.
