-It’s Independence Day in the United States. Barring any breaking news, I will be taking the day off, but things will get back to normal tonight with my WWE Raw coverage.

-WWE Raw is live tonight from San Diego, California at Pechanga Arena. The show includes Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio vs. Finn Balor and Damian Priest, and fallout from Saturday’s Money in the Bank 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 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, which is available exclusively for Dot Net Members (including our Patreon patrons), will be delayed this week due to the holiday. Likewise, there is not a Pro Wrestling Boom Live show this week due to the holiday. The next Boom Live will be Monday, August 1 coming out of WWE SummerSlam and Ric Flair’s Last Match.

-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 San Diego, Wednesday’s live AEW Dynamite (and AEW Rampage taping) in Rochester, New York, and Friday’s WWE Smackdown show in For Worth, Texas. If you are going to an upcoming show and want to help, email me at dotnetjason@gmail.com
