-I hope everyone in the United States is enjoying Memorial Day weekend. Due to the holiday, our updates will be less frequent today than on a usual Monday morning/afternoon, but we will be back to business as usual tonight when Raw begins.
-WWE Raw takes place tonight in Calgary, Alberta at Scotiabank Saddledome. WWE Hall of Famers Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels will reunite in Canada for the first time in 15 years. WWE is advertising that the Hart appreciation ceremony will be shown on the WWE app after Raw concludes. Plus, John Cena will be back after taking a rare weekend off from live events, and week two of the Curtis Axel era begins with an appearance on The Highlight Reel. Join me for live coverage of Raw as the show airs on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-We are looking for additional correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw in Calgary and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping in Edmonton, Alberta If you are going to either show and want to help, contact me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Dot Net Members will be listening to my audio review of WWE Raw later tonight. 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 WWE Raw television show is John Cena and Alberto Del Rio vs. Ryback and Dolph Ziggler. This appears to be dated advertising rather than an indication that Ziggler is returning. Last week, Jack Swagger took Ziggler's spot in this dark tag main event.
-TNA executive Eric Bischoff is 58 today. He was born on May 27, 1955. Bischoff works directly with Spike TV on behalf of TNA and plays a role in creative and production.
-WWE Diva Natalya (a/k/a Natalie Katherine Neidhart) is 31 today. She was born on May 27, 1982. It will be interesting to see if they do anything with a Hart family member in Calgary on her birthday on Raw tonight.
