-WWE Smackdown Live is in Detroit, Michigan at Little Cesar’s Arena. The show features a Triple Threat match with the winning team earning a spot in a No. 1 contenders match for a shot at the Smackdown Tag Titles at WWE Hell in a Cell. Join Jake Barnett for live coverage as the show airs on USA Network at 7CT/8ET, and I will be by later tonight with my audio review and again on Wednesday with my WWE Smackdown Hit List.

-The Ring of Honor TV show features Sumie Sakai vs. Madison Rayne for the Women of Honor Championship. My written review will be available today, and Haydn Gleed members’ exclusive audio review should also be out today.
-Am I the only one who already misses the Miz & Mrs. show? It wrapped up its six episode run last week and will return with 14 more episodes in 2019. I guess I’ll do my best to fill the void with the premiere of “Mayans MC” on FX tonight after Smackdown.
