-The WWE Raw crew is in Charleston, West Virginia at the Charleston Civic Center tonight with John Cena vs. Big Show in a steel cage match main event.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Johnson City, Tennessee at Freedom Hall on Saturday with the following advertised matches: Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Hvt. Championship, Big Show and Randy Orton vs. Kane and Cody Rhodes in a Texas Tornado match. However, I assume the Orton listing is dated due to the fact that he's not listed for the show on the WWE website. For that matter, Big Show is a heel now. Orton is advertised for Monday's Raw show.
-The WWE Raw crew is in Lexington, Kentucky at Rupp Arena on Saturday with the following advertised matches: John Cena vs. Big Show in a steel cage match, Santino Marella vs. David Otunga for the U.S. Championship. I would ask what Otunga has done to justify a U.S. Title shot from a storyline standpoint, but Santino holding the title has killed my interested in it.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Pikeville, Kentucky at Eastern Kentucky Exposition on Sunday. There are no matches listed on the arena website, but C.M. Punk and Daniel Bryan are listed for both Smackdown live events again this weekend.
