-It’s Labor Day in the United States. As such, it will likely be a lighter day of updates as we enjoy the holiday. Everything will return to normal tonight beginning with my coverage of Raw.
-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Columbus, Ohio at Schottenstein Center. It will be very interesting to see what WWE does tonight since it’s the last Raw before they will be opposed by Monday Night Football. Will they attempt to load up next week’s show or just bow down to the MNF doubleheader? Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Saginaw, Michigan at Dow Event Center tonight with the following advertised matches: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship, Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Jeff Hardy for the U.S. Championship, and Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz.
-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Raw in Columbus, tonight’s WWE Smackdown event in Saginaw, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Detroit, Michigan. 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 advertised dark main event for tonight’s Raw event is Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, and Baron Corbin in a six-man tag match.
