Wrestlezone editor Nick Paglino is live at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY for tonight's Monday Night Raw, and will be sending in reports from the show as the night progresses.
-WWE announced its return to the Barclays Center with a WWE Live event on September 8th, with a 5PM local start time. The pre-sale password, which begins as soon as Raw goes off the air later tonight, is "WWELIVE".
-Lots of the usual Daniel Bryan chants. Rob Van Dam is over, and John Cena is going to get a ton of heat tonight.
-Fandango's entrance stuff is hanging above the Titantron and ring.
-Before the tapings, they run a video package of all the WrestleMania matches. Again, John Cena's very image on the screen got booed out of the arena.
-The Brooklyn Brawler was in action before Raw, and he got squashed by Ryback in front of his hometown crowd. FULL WWE SUPERSTARS SPOILERS.
-As they were coming out, Michael Cole easily got the best reaction out of the commentary team. Tons of love for Cole.
-Nikki Bella is ringside for her sister's match, and came to the ring with crutches while the show was off air.
