— As a reminder, tonight’s WWE RAW begins at a special start time of 8EST and will be three-hours long. Vince McMahon will open the show. They are doing this to try to bump ratings for the first hour. Traditionally, the first hour of a three-hour RAW is always the lowest rated hour of their three-hour broadcasts.
— Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are both not backstage at RAW today.
— Triple H will not be appearing on RAW tonight. They’ll be promoting his return at Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view.
— WWE just sent out the following text alert, confirming our earlier report that Alberto Del Rio has been pulled from the WWE No Way Out pay-per-view this Sunday night. Due to a concussion on SmackDown, Del Rio wont face World Champion Sheamus at No Way Out. New #1 contender to be named on tonight’s Raw (8/7 CT).
