-WWE Raw is in Richmond, Virginia at the Richmond Coliseum tonight. WWE is advertising another Triple H vs. Curtis Axel match. Keep in mind that this was also the advertised main event for last week's show, but Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon prevented it from happening. DirecTV's onscreen guide even questions whether Mr. McMahon will let Hunter wrestle. For what it's worth, the match is advertised on the Richmond Coliseum website. Join me for live coverage tonight as Raw airs at 7:00 p.m. CT.
