Punk will share some of his stories from pro wrestling and after that, the ComedySportz improv group will act those stories out. The show benefits the Sam Thompson Memorial Fund. Sam was a wrestling fan who died back in June after battling stomach cancer and cystic fibrosis. There will also be a silent auction with wrestling memorabilia. The Chicago Tribune notes that Punk is eager to tell a story about Vince McMahon from one of their trips to Iraq for a Tribute to the Troops show.
– There’s no confirmation that Jim Ross will announce tonight’s RAW alongside Michael Cole but Ross wrote on Twitter he thinks that’s the plan.
Tonight’s WWE RAW will take place from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. While tonight is Jim Ross Appreciation Night, those festivities will likely be for the livecrowd only. JR is still expected to work RAW alongside Michael Cole.
No matches have been announced for tonight but unless plans have changed, there will be no John Cena tonight. One WWE Superstar scheduled to make his return tonight is Jack Swagger. The new dark main event for tonight is CM Punk vs. Sheamus since Cena is out with an injury.
WWE is focusing on the following points for tonight’s show:
* How will CM Punk respond to the blatant challenge from Ryback?
* Will AJ Lee have an answer to Paul Heyman’s marriage proposal?
* What will Big Show do next as he prepares for Sheamus?
* How will Kane and Daniel Bryan respond to the tag team tournament?
* Will John Cena be ready for Hell In a Cell? How will Punk respond to last week’s attack?

– A fan wrote to CM Punk on Twitter and told him that he should switch his theme song back to “This Fire Burns” if he wants “real heel heat.” Punk responded:
“Above is an example of what is wrong with fans today. You know cute words like “segment” and “heat” but you don’t know what it means. How many stars is this tweet? Two thumbs down to the #genpop”
– While Charlotte (Ashley Flair) is one of the most athletic women on WWE’s entire roster, NXT and main, there is talk of bringing her to WWE TV as a manager. Earlier this summer it was reported that there was already talk in developmental of putting Charlotte with Cody Rhodes on the main roster, playing off the great rivalry between Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes. While there has been talk of bringing Charlotte to the main roster as a manager, the talk about pairing her with Cody apparently was just that – talk.
