-Prowrestling.net Live returns today at 3CT/4ET. Will Pruett and I will be taking your calls coming out of WWE Money in the Bank live at PWAudio.net.
-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Grand Rapids, Michigan at Van Andel Arena. The show will feature the fallout from last night’s Money in the Bank event. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.
-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Raw in Grand Rapids, the WWE UK Championship Tournament in London, the WWE Smackdown live event in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Toledo, Ohio. 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
-WWE will be taping the first day of the UK Championship tournament today in London, England at Royal Albert Hall. They will tape the second day at the same venue on Tuesday. The show will stream on WWE Network on June 25-26.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Fort Wayne, Indiana at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum tonight with the following advertised matches: AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship, Jeff Hardy vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe for the U.S. Championship.
-The advertised Raw dark main events are Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, and Seth Rollins vs. Jinder Mahal, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens, and Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss. Take it with a grain of salt since WWE rarely makes good on their Raw dark main events.
