-WWE Raw is in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Wells Fargo Center. The show will include the final Raw push for Sunday’s Fastlane event. Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will also hear my audio review afterward.
-We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw in Philadelphia, tonight’s live event in White Plains, and Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live television event in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. 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
-WWE is in White Plains, New York at Westchester County Center tonight with the following advertised matches: Daniel Bryan vs. AJ Styles, and Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. Charlotte stated on Smackdown that she would be showing up at Raw, so I suspect that match will be changed.
-The advertised dark main events for Raw are Bran Strowman vs. Baron Corbin, and Finn Balor vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre for the Intercontinental Championship.
