MONDAY 8/22

7:30 PM Monday Night Raw at Barclays Center

I’ve done my best to denote all of the different free events taking place throughout the week including some meet and greets.  My suggestion would be that if you’re going to attend any of the free events, arrive early!  Free events are few and far between so you know people with be out in droves for these.

I’d also like to point out that I did not include ring Of Honor. They’re having a very big pay per view tomorrow night that should be great.  You can check out Death Before Dishonor 14 live from Las Vegas, Nevada tomorrow night at 9:00PM EST and also on pay per view.  For more information, check them out right here  http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/jay-lethal-defend-world-title-against-adam-cole-dbd
