-WWE Raw is in Houston, Texas at Toyota Center. WWE is advertising Ronda Rousey and Natalya vs. Nia Jax and Tamina. This Raw can’t possibly be as bad as last week’s show, right? Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET. Members will also hear my audio review afterward.
