-WWE Friday Night Smackdown is live from Orlando, Florida at Amway Center. Sasha Banks will return for the first time since she was attacked by Bayley. Join me for the weekly live review as Smackdown airs on Fox tonight at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will hear my audio review later tonight.
-NJPW Strong streams tonight on the New Japan World at 9CT/10ET. Anish V’s written reviews are available on Saturday morning along with his audio reviews for Dot Net Members.

-The next live event listed on the WWE website is October 10 in Madrid, Spain. There’s obviously no telling whether WWE or anyone of the promotions listed below will return to running live events by then. In fact, it seems highly unlikely that WWE would be allowed to venture overseas due to travel restrictions.

-New Japan Pro Wrestling’s next events are the G1 Climax tournament, which kicks off Saturday morning in Osaka.
-Impact Wrestling is not listing any events on their website.
