-WWE Raw takes place tonight in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Triple H is officially advertised as appearing on the television show to address retirement rumors. WWE is also advertising that A.J. is forcing Daniel Bryan to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. I don't know about you, but I know I watch wrestling just waiting for the next great psychiatric evaluation! Anyway, Ryan Kester will be filling in for me on live coverage of WWE Raw tonight as the show airs on USA Network beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping. If you are going to either show and want to help, please contact me as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Rey Mysterio has been removed from the advertised talent lineup on the WWE website page for tonight's show. He was previously listed on the talent lineup and on the arena advertising, but it's possible he will miss the show with the concussion he suffered last week. Thanks for Dot Net reader Scotty Myers for passing along the Raw notes.
-The advertised dark main event for tonight's WWE Raw show is John Cena vs. Big Show in a No DQ match. It's worth noting that John Laurinaitis is no longer advertised for the dark matches. He has finished his executive job at WWE Headquarters (I believe his last day was August 17).
-WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter (a/k/a Robert Remus) is 64 today. He was born on August 27, 1948. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on March 13, 2004, and he continues to work on a WWE Legends contract.
-Female pro wrestler Jazz (a/k/a Carlene Begnud) is 39 today. She was born on August 27, 1973.
-The late Crash Holly (a/k/a Mike Lockwood) would have turned 41 on Saturday. He was born on August 25, 1971. He died on November 6, 2003 at age 32 from what was ruled a suicide.
-Retired pro wrestling star Ivan Koloff (a/k/a Oreal Perras) turned 70 on Saturday. He was born on August 25, 1942. At last check, he became an ordained minister.
-Former TNA wrestler David Young (a/k/a David Williams) turned 40 on Saturday. He was born on August 25, 1972. At last check, he was still working on the indy scene.
-Former TNA wrestler Petey Williams turned 31 on Sunday. He was born on August 26, 1981.
-The late Bobby Duncum Jr. would have turned 47 on Sunday. He was born on August 26, 1965. He died on January 24, 2000 due to an accidental overdose of a prescription painkiller.
-The following wrestlers are listed for the 8:30 p.m. CT airing of the UWF on ESPN Classic: Steve "Dr. Death" Williams, Bob Orton Jr., and Cactus Jack.
