– Today’s birthdays are Lance Hoyt (34), Ricky Steamboat (58), Norman Smiley (46) and Masato Tanaka (38).
– Chris Jericho and Abdullah The Butcher will be guests tonight after RAW on Right After Wrestling with Arda Ocal on SIRIUS channel 98.
– Tonight’s WWE RAW will take place from the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York. Advertised locally is The Miz and CM Punk vs. Randy Orton and John Cena with Michael Cole as special referee.
As noted yesterday, The Rock is expected for tonight’s show to respond to John Cena. WWE confirmed on their Twitter last night, or so it appears, that The Rock will be live on tonight’s show. There’s speculation that he won’t be appearing live but will have a taped video or something air.
