-WWE Smackdown is in Lincoln, Nebraska at Pinnacle Arena with the brand’s first show since the Superstar Shakeup. WWE’s official preview is questioning wither Roman Reigns will be fired after punching Vince McMahon last week. Um, sure. Join me for live coverage as the show airs on USA Network at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will hear my audio review later tonight. Jake Barnett has the night off, but he will be by on Wednesday with the WWE Smackdown Hit List.

-The dark main events advertised for tonight’s Smackdown taping are Kofi Kingston vs. Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton. These are obviously updated lineups following the Shakeup, so hopefully that’s a sign of good news regarding the health of Bryan.
