-WWE Raw will be held in North Charleston, South Carolina at the North Charleston Civic Center. The only advertised match is Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan in the third match of their series. Orton won their first match last week on Raw via medical stoppage. Bryan got a count out win on Smackdown. Vince McMahon and Triple H are once again advertised. Join me for live coverage of Raw as the show airs live at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw in North Charleston and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown taping in Columbia, South Carlina. 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 member exclusive WWE Raw audio review 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. In the meantime, check out the weekly All Access audio review of WWE Smackdown that Chris Shore and Jake Barnett recorded in our Podcasts section. Plus, I interviewed Chris Kleinrock about his lengthy run in the pro wrestling industry and his Viva L.A. Lucha Kickster fundraising effort last week, which is also available in the podcasts section.
-Tiny Lister, Jr. is 55 today. He was born on June 24, 1958. He's best known for acting, but he also played the character Zeus in Hulk Hogan's "No Holds Barred" movie, and later played the character for WWE. He also popped up again in WCW.
-It was six years ago today that Chris Benoit took his own life two days after murdering his wife Nancy Benoit and his son Daniel Benoit. His brain was donated for testing, and Dr. Julian Bailes assessed that Chris Benoit's brain "was so severely damaged it resembled the brain of an 85 year-old Alzheimer's patient."
-Late WWE star John "Earthquake" Tenta was born on June 22, 1963. He died on June 7, 2006 following a long battle with bladder cancer.
