WWE in Northern Ireland (European tour correspondents needed), WWE Main Event television coverage, Dot Net Countdown Show, Ken Patera, the late Crash Holly and Sky Low Low
By Jason Powell
-WWE is in Belfast, Northern Ireland at Odyssey Arena tonight for the beginning of their latest European tour with the following advertised matches: Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship, Big Show, Dolph Ziggler, and The Miz vs. The Shield in a six-man tag match. WWE is also advertising Kofi Kingston, Wade Barrett, A.J. Lee, and Natalya for this event. It will be interesting to see whether the absence of Sheamus from the tour hurts ticket sales in his native Ireland. To WWE's credit, the featured portion of their advertising on the arena website states that Sheamus is out of action after undergoing shoulder surgery.
-WWE is in Columbia, S.C. tonight at Colonial Life Arena with the following lineup: C.M. Punk and Daniel Bryan vs. The Wyatt Family, Curtis Axel vs. R-Truth for the Intercontinental Title.
--We are looking for correspondents for all of the the WWE European tour events as well as tonight's show in Columbia. If you are attending one of the shows and want to help, send your report (or basic results) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
-The featured match of WWE Main Event is Luke Harper and Erick Rowan vs. The Prime Time Players. The advertised match between Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel vs. Big E Langston did not take place at Tuesday's taping. Join Ryan Kester for live coverage of WWE Main Event as the show airs on ION Network tonight at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-Longtime pro wrestler Ken Patera is 70 today. Patera was born on November 6, 1943.

-The late Michael Lockwood (a/k/a Crash Holly) died ten years ago today at the age of 32. Lockdwood was found dead inside the home of friend Stevie Richards. His death was ruled a suicide, as he ingested a prescription drug and alcohol, and was distraught over receiving divorce papers from his wife.
-Late midget wrestler Sky Low Low (a/k/a Marcel Gauthier) died on this date in 1998 at age 70.
-There are no pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic this week. The Global SuperCard Wrestling shows will return on Monday night.
