– Ted sent the following: Raw will take place in Cleveland, Ohio on January 26th, with John Cena vs. Chris Jericho in a streetfight as the main event. For what its worth… This is the first time ever that Raw will be held at the Wolstein Center. WWE has always run at Quicken Loans Arena until now. The ‘Q’ seats more than 20,000 for wrestling. The Wolstein Center can seat about 15,000 for wrestling and concerts. I have no idea if this was a move because of a better deal at the CSU Vikings home arena, or a move because of a smaller building. Sometimes WWE has had to curtain off the upper deck of the ‘Q’ because of smaller crowds recently. WCW ran Nitro at the Wolstein Center a number of times – but I don’t believe they ever had a sold-out crowd at the Wolstein Center. The times I was there – large sections of the seating bowl on the hard camera side of the arena were tarped off. I believe WCW ran there in part because WWF/WWE had an exclusive deal with Quicken Loans Arena, formerly Gund Arena.
– WWE Tag Team champions John Morrison & The Miz with Jack Swagger vs. CM Punk & Kofi Kingston & Ricky Ortiz will be the main event of tonight’s ECW on Sci-Fi.
