Powell’s POV: WWE is advertising a one-hour Kickoff Show starting at 5CT/6ET with the actual event starting at 6CT/7ET. There is also a 30-minute post show hosted by Renee Young advertised for 9:30CT/10:30ET. In other words, the pay-per-view is slotted for 3.5 hours, but they have run long despite post shows being advertised in the past. Join me for live coverage beginning with Kickoff Show notes. Dot Net Members will hear an audio review hosted by Jake Barnett and I late tonight.
