By Jason Powell, Prowrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Albany, New York at Times Union Center with the continued build to Money in the Bank. The show will feature the segment involving Sami Zayn and Bobby Lashley’s sisters. WWE is also advertising Ronda Rousey on the arena website. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.

-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Main Event tapings that will be held prior to WWE Raw in Albany, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Worcester, Massachusetts. 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 dotnetjason@gmail.com

-The WWE Smackdown crew is traveling back from Europe today so there is not a Monday night house show.

-The advertised dark main event for tonight’s Raw is Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, and Seth Rollins vs. Jinder Mahal, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens. Keep in mind that WWE doesn’t always deliver their dark main events as advertised.
