By Jason Powell
-Prowrestling.net Live is returning tonight (10:30 p.m. CT/11:30 p.m. ET) just minutes after WWE Raw goes off the air. We will breakdown Raw for the first 10-15 minutes of the show, and then begin taking your phone calls. We'll have additional details about Prowrestling.net live on the main page later today.
-The first WWE Raw of 2014 takes place tonight in Baltimore, Maryland at Baltimore Arena. WWE is using the Old School Raw theme and has a group of legends already announced for the show, including Ric Flair. I remain curious as to whether this could be a launchpad for Hulk Hogan's return to WWE, but that's purely speculation. Either way, it should be a newsworthy show considering it will also feature the followup to Daniel Bryan joining The Wyatt Family last week.
-Join me for live coverage of WWE Raw tonight as the show airs at 7:00 p.m. CT. One of the changes I intend to make for the new year is streamlining my Raw live coverage report. I will still hit the major points and offer immediate commentary.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw in Baltimore, Maryland and Tuesday's WWE Smackdown in Philadelphia, Pa. If you are going to either show and want to help, contact me right away at email@example.com.
-The second category of the Dot Net 2013 Awards opens today. We will be moving through the categories every day or two, so get your votes in. That said, if you missed a past poll, you can go back and access them on our poll page.

-The late Moondog Spot (a/k/a Larry Booker) was born on January 6, 1952. He died on November 29, 2003. He died after suffering a heart attack in the ring at Jerry Lawler's birthday bash event on November 29, 2003 in Memphis. He also wrestled as Larry Latham.
