-Today is Labor Day here in the United States. We will be enjoying the holiday with friends and family, so the updates may not be as frequent as they would be a typical Monday. Things will get back to normal tonight with my WWE Raw live coverage review.

-The Labor Day edition of WWE Raw takes place tonight in Chicago, Illinois at Allstate Arena. It will be fun to see the hometown crowd's reaction to C.M. Punk and his Night of Champions opponent John Cena during the show tonight. Look for WWE to play up that while Raw is in Punk's native Chicago, the Night of Champions pay-per-view will be held in Cena's home of Boston, Massachusetts. Join me tonight for live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-The Chicago fans are getting a Night of Champions preview tonight with the dark main event of C.M. Punk vs. John Cena for the WWE Championship. We are looking for correspondents for tonight's Raw show and Tuesday's Smackdown taping in Moline, Illinois. If you are going to either show and want to help, contact me right away at
