-WWE Raw is in Grand Rapids, Michigan at Van Andel Arena tonight. Mark Henry is advertised as returning, plus Triple H and Vince McMahon are both advertised on the WWE Live Events page. It should be a very interesting Raw coming out of the newsworthy WWE Payback show, as we will also get followup to the C.M. Punk and Paul Heyman situation, the latest on Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan, and presumably more on Dolph Ziggler and new World Hvt. Champion Dolph Ziggler. Join me for live coverage of Raw as the show airs on USA Network tonight at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw in Grand Rapids, Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping in Dayton, Ohio, and Thursday's TNA Impact Wrestling television event in Peoria, Illinois. If you are going to either show and want to help, contact me right away at
