-WWE Raw is in Salt Lake City, Utah at Vivint Smart Home Arena with the followup to last week’s excellent Edge and Randy Orton angle. 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 my Dot Net Members’ exclusive Q&A audio show via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, please maintain the limit of three pro wrestling related questions and four non-wrestling questions.
-We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw in Salt Lake City, Wednesday’s AEW in Birmingham, Alabama, and Friday’s Smackdown in San Jose, 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
-There are no dark matches advertised for tonight’s Raw on the arena website. The recent advertised dark matches Kevin Owens, Rey Mysterio, and Samoa Joe vs. Seth Rollins and AOP, and Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles, though obviously the second one won’t happen due to Styles’ injury and the Orton heel turn.
