-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at Denny Sanford Premier Center. Bayley and Sasha Banks are going to counseling. God help us. 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 Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Omaha, Nebraska. 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 is not a Smackdown live event this weekend, as the crew is returning from their overseas tour.
-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 because WWE rarely makes good on their Raw dark main events.
