-WWE Raw is in Los Angeles, California at Staples Center with the brand’s go-home show for Sunday’s WWE Stomping Grounds. R-Truth’s dead body will be recovered from a shipping crate (or something like that). Join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will also hear weekly my audio review late tonight after the show.
-We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw in Los Angeles, and Tuesday’s Smackdown in Ontario, California. 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 email@example.com
-Submit questions for today’s members’ exclusive Q&A audio show via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, limit yourself to three pro wrestling related questions and four non-wrestling questions.
-The advertised dark matches for tonight’s Raw are Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin for the WWE Universal Championship, and Becky Lynch vs. Lacey Evans in a street fight for the Raw Women’s Championship, and Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre in a handicap match.
