Monday Night Raw In ATL TONIGHT!

If you've read this site for a while or kept up with me on Twitter (@S_ATL_Wrestling) you may know that I am a HUGE proponent of WWE house shows. I really enjoy heading to the Columbus Civic Center in Columbus, GA and seeing those shows. It's a cool venue, a more old school feel, and a heck of a lot cheaper.

Due to this I no longer go to all the Raw and SmackDown shows that come through town, but I am going tonight and there are two HUGE reasons that I'm excited about it.
  1. Ric Flair's 70th Birthday Celebration

  2. Roman Reigns' Announcement
I list Flair's 70th Birthday Celebration first because the announcement of that segment actually made me purchase these tickets. Up until the moment that was announced I still wasn't going to the show. The idea of being in the building to honor Flair AND the possibility that Becky Lynch shows up to wreck the event was a confirmed draw for me.

At this point though I am obviously more excited about being in the building for Roman's announcement. All the tea leaves seem to suggest that we are getting good news tonight, and I certainly hope that's the case. I was in that building when he won his first WWE Title at Survivor Series 2015, and I'm glad that me and my son will be there to witness his return tonight.

Hoping it's a great show tonight. I will be wearing my Unleash The Big Dog shirt with my Georgia Tech hat in support of Roman as well.

It will be really cool getting to see two of my favorite wrestlers ever on the same show tonight especially considering the context of Roman's illness.

UPDATE: GMA dropped a promo for Roman's appearance tomorrow morning as well. Roman will be doing a sit-down interview with Robin Roberts who is also a cancer survivor.
