WWE has announced that on April 26, Raw be a live 3-hour broadcast. Raw will roll the cameras into the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia.

As always, card is subject to change, so plans could change at anytime.
It has been announced that William Regal will replace MVP on the new show “WWE NXT” as he will be paired with Skip Sheffield. No word yet on what MVP’s role will be on the show or if he will be dropped altogether. All of the scheduled participants in the show now have profiles up at WWE.com, including Bryan Danielson (under the name of Daniel Bryan), who was trained by Shawn Michaels.
Former WWE Women’s Champion Gail Kim turned 34 yesterday. What a birthday present it would be if Gail could walk out of tonight’s PPV with the WWE Divas Championship. This will be her first singles match on PPV since returning to the company a few months back.
Slam! Wrestling has an interview up with former WWE Intercontinental Champion John Morrison. In the interview he describes the John Morrison character as being “me with the volume turned up.” You can check out the story by clicking HERE.
