-Today is Memorial Day in the United States. Barring breaking news, I’ll be enjoying what’s left of the busy holiday weekend before Raw tonight.
-WWE Raw is live tonight from Albany, New York at MVP Arena. The show features the fallout from WWE Night of Champions and new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions will be crowned. Join me for my live review as Raw airs on USA Network tonight at 7CT/8ET. My weekly same night audio review will be available for Dot Net Members (including our Patreon patrons).
-Pro Wrestling Boom Live returns TUESDAY at 1CT/2ET. Co-host Jonny Fairplay and I will be taking your calls coming out of AEW Double Or Nothing, NXT Battleground, and WWE Night of Champions at PWAudio.net. All pro wrestling current events topics are open for discussion. If you can’t call into the show, you are welcome to send pro wrestling related questions to email@example.com. The Q&A audio show will return next week.
We are looking for reports from tonight’s WWE Raw in Albany, Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite (and Friday’s AEW Rampage taping) in San Diego, and Friday’s WWE Smackdown in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. If you are going to an upcoming show and want to help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
