-WWE Raw will be held in Baltimore, Maryland at 1st Mariner Arena tonight. The hype for the show is built around the debut of The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan). I can't remember a developmental act's debut being pushed hard to close an edition of Raw as the Wyatt Family's debut was pushed at the end of last week's Raw. I'm anxious to see whether they have a big angle planned or if they just used it as a hook for the show and have a standard debut planned.

-WWE is also advertising Vickie Guerrero's performance review featuring Vince McMahon, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon.

-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw in Baltimore and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping in Hampton, Virginia. If you are going to either show and want to help, contact me right away at

-Dot Net Members will be listening to my member exclusive WWE Raw audio review later tonight. They are currently listening to my 53-minute Q&A audio show. Join us on the ad-free version of the website by signing up for membership now via the Dot Net Members' Signup Page.

-The dark main event for tonight's Raw is listed as John Cena vs. Ryback in a tables match for the WWE Championship.
