-WWE Raw will be broadcast from Nashville, Tennessee at Bridgestone Arena tonight with the go-home show for Sunday's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. The Rock will return after missing last week's show, and Brock Lesnar is not advertised after appearing the last two weeks. Join me for live coverage of WWE Raw as the show airs tonight on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw event and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping in Little Rock, Arkansas. If you are going to either event and want to help, contact me at

-The advertised main event for Raw is Ryback and John Cena vs. C.M. Punk and Dolph Ziggler. It's likely the dark main event. Punk worked the live event on Sunday in Cape Girardeau despite being suffering an injury on Saturday when The Miz dropped him on his head while trying to execute a suplex. Thus, it's safe to assume Punk will work tonight, though it's possible his in-ring involvement could be limited.

-We ran seven of our nine 2012 Dot Net Awards over the weekend. We saved the Best Pro Wrestler and Pro Wrestling MVP categories for today. You can check out the winners, the voting (as determined by reader vote), and staff comments on the awards past and present in our awards section.

-The late Louie Spicoli (a/k/a Louis Mucciolo, Jr.) was born on February 10, 1971. He died February 15, 1998 due to an overdose. He worked as Rad Radford in WWE.

-The late Chris Adams was born on February 10, 1955. He died on October 7, 2001 when he was shot in the chest following an argument with longtime friend Brent Parnell, who claimed self defense and was later cleared of all charges.

-Former WWE Women's Champion Madusa/Alundra Blayze (a/k/a Debrah Micelli) turned 49 on Saturday. She was born on February 9, 1964.

-Former WWE and TNA wrestler Shelly Martinez (a/k/a Ariel, Salinas) turned 33 on Saturday. She was born on February 9, 1980. She continues to work on the independent scene.
