-WWE Raw is in New York, New York at Madison Square Garden. WWE is advertising Steve Austin as the moderator of a Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman contract signing for the WWE Universal Championship match at WWE Clash of Champions. 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, please limit yourself to three pro wrestling related questions and four non-wrestling questions.
-We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw and Tuesday’s Smackdown at MSG. 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 vs. Baron Corbin for the WWE Universal Championship, and Becky Lynch vs. Lacey Evans for the Raw Women’s Championship. These matches probably won’t take place given WWE’s track record of delivering Raw dark main events, but wasn’t the Extreme Rules stipulation that Corbin and Evans couldn’t challenge for those titles again because they lost the mixed tag main event? Yes, I asked this same question last week.
