-WWE Raw is in Toronto, Ontario at Scotiabank Arena with the night after SummerSlam edition. WWE is advertising Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss vs. Kairi Sane and Asuka for the WWE Women’s Tag Titles. 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.
-Prowrestling.net Live returns today at 3CT/4ET. Will Pruett and I will be taking your calls coming out of one of the most loaded pro wrestling weekends to date live at PWAudio.net.
-We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw and Tuesday’s Smackdown in Toronto. 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
