-WWE Raw will be held tonight in San Diego, California at Valley View Casino Center. Seth Rollins will get his rematch with Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship after dropping the title to him last week. 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 San Diego, the Smackdown live event in Bakersfield, California, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Ontario, California. 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 air the first day of the UK Championship tournament today on WWE Network. I will be covering the show live as it streams at 2CT/3ET. Haydn Gleed and Darren Gutteridge will by by at some point with members’ exclusive audio reviews of both days of the tournament.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Bakersfield, California at Rabobank Arena tonight with the following advertised matches: Jeff Hardy vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the U.S. Championship, Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass, and Becky Lynch vs. Mandy Rose.
-The advertised Raw dark main events are Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, and Bobby Lashley vs. Jinder Mahal, Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, and Elias. Take it with a grain of salt becuase WWE rarely makes good on their Raw dark main events.
