-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Boston, Massachusetts at TD Garden. The next installment of Bayley and Sasha Banks going to counseling with Dr. Shelby will air, plus this is the final Raw before Sunday’s Extreme Rules 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 Boston, tonight’s WWE Smackdown event in Augusta, Maine, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Manchester, New Hampshire. 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 email@example.com
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Augusta, Maine at Augusta Civic Center tonight with the following advertised lineup: AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a No DQ match for the WWE Championship, Jeff Hardy vs. Rusev vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe in a four-way for the U.S. Championship. The lineup may change due to Nakamura’s leg injury.
-The advertised Raw dark main event is Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, and Bobby Lashley vs. Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Kevin Owens, and Elias. Take it with a grain of salt because WWE rarely makes good on their Raw dark main events.
