-WWE Raw is in North Little Rock, Arkansas at Verizon Arena. WWE had over three million viewers watch last week’s show and never bothered to advertise a match or anything for this week’s show. Anyway, join me for live coverage as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will also hear my weekly same night audio review.
-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.
-We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw in North Little Rock, and Tuesday’s Smackdown in Memphis, Tennessee. 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
-The advertised dark matches on the host venue’s website for tonight’s Raw are Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch vs. Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans, and AJ Styles vs. Ricochet for the U.S. Championship.
