-Today is the Memorial Day holiday in the United States. Barring any breaking news, I will be taking the majority of the day off, and then things will get back to normal starting with tonight’s WWE Raw.

-WWE Raw is live tonight from Des Moines, Iowa at Wells Fargo Arena. This will be the brand’s go-home show for Sunday’s WWE Hell in a Cell event. Join me for my live review 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 this week’s Dot Net Members’ exclusive Q&A Audio Show via email at dotnetjason@gmail.com. Please maintain the limit of three pro wrestling related questions and four non-wrestling questions. The show will be delayed this week due to the holiday, but I will be recording an episode at some point during the week.

-AEW Dark: Elevation streams tonight on the AEW YouTube page at 6CT/7ET. Dot Net contributor Rich Bailin’s review will be available on Tuesday morning.

We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw in Des Moines, Wednesday’s live AEW Dynamite in Los Angeles, Friday’s live AEW Rampage in Ontario, California, Friday’s WWE Smackdown show in Columbus, Ohio, and Sunday’s WWE Hell in a Cell event in Chicago. If you are going to an upcoming show and want to help, email me at dotnetjason@gmail.com
