-WWE Raw will be held tonight in Charlotte, North Carolina at Spectrum Center. The show will include the followup to Dean Ambrose turning on Seth Rollins and final hype for Friday’s Crown Jewel event. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Macon, Georgia at Macon Centerplex Coliseum tonight with the following advertised matches: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship, Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Carmella for the Smackdown Women’s Championship, Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton for the U.S. Championship.
-We are looking for reports for tonight’s WWE Raw in Charlotte, tonight’s WWE Smackdown event in Macon, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Atlanta. 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 are no dark main events listed on the arena website for tonight’s Raw. Recent advertised main events have been Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose vs. Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler, and Drew McIntyre, so they will need to shake it up if they actually deliver a dark main event.
