-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. Will Pruett and I 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.
-WWE Raw takes place tonight in Providence, Rhode Island at Dunkin' Donuts Center. Join me for live coverage of WWE Raw tonight as the show airs at 7:00 p.m. CT. I mentioned last week that I hope to streamline my Raw live coverage reports. It didn't really work out last week because there was so much happening during Old School Raw, but I'll give it another shot tonight.
-We are looking for correspondents for tonight's WWE Raw in Providence, Rhode Island, Tuesday's WWE Smackdown in Worcester, Massachusetts, and Thursday's TNA Impact Wrestling television event in Huntsville, Alabama. If you are going to any of those shows and want to help, contact me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-We will be unveiling the "Best Heel" voting as the Dot Net 2013 Awards continue today. We're going to run through the categories in more of a rapid fire pace this week. That was the plan last week, but it was derailed a bit by the WWE Network announcement and all of the coverage that followed.
-The advertised dark main event for tonight's WWE Raw show is Randy Orton vs. John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
-WWE developmental wrestler Mason Ryan (a/k/a Barri Griffiths) is 32 today. He can be seen regularly on the NXT television show.
-Former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard is 33 today. He was born on January 13, 1981.
-The late John Kronus (a/k/a George B. Caiazzo) was born on January 13, 1969. He died on July 18, 2007. His death was attributed to heart failure resulting from an enlarged heart.
-The late Luna Vachon (a/k/a Gertrude Vachon) was born on January 12, 1962. She died on August 27, 2010 at age 48 due to a overdose.
-Former WWE wrestler Brian Blair turned 57 on Sunday. He was born on January 12, 1957.
-The late Big Dick Dudley (a/k/a Alex Rizzo) was born on January 12, 1968. He died on May 16, 2002 due to kidney failure.
-Abdullah the Butcher (a/k/a Larry Shreve) turned 73 on Saturday. He was born on January 11, 1941. He owns a pair of restaurants called "Abdullah the Butcher's House of Ribs and Chinese Food" in Atlanta and Japan.
-The late Mick McManus (a/k/a William Matthews) was born on January 11, 1921. He died on May 22, 2013.
-The late Gory Guerrero was born on January 11, 1921. He died on April 18, 1990. He is the father of WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero, and fellow wrestlers Chavo, Mando, and Hector, as well as two daughters Mary and Linda.
-There are no pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic tonight. The classic Global Supercard Wrestling show will return on Thursday.
