By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

-WWE Raw is a taped show billed as featuring “The Absolute Best of 2022.” Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET. Because the show is in “best of” mode, I will not be covering it live tonight, nor does there appear to be any need for an audio review. My live review of Raw will resume next Monday.

-Submit questions for this week’s Q&A Audio Show via email at dotnetjason@gmail.com. The show will not be available today due to the holidays, but it will be available at some point this week. Please maintain the limit of three pro wrestling related questions and four non-wrestling questions. This show is available exclusively for Dot Net Members (including our Patreon patrons).
