RAW in the 6ix
August 7, 2017
I haven't been to a live wrestling event since last year's Survivor Series, and the last time I was on hand for a taping of RAW or SmackDown, it had to be five or six years ago. So when The Big Rybowski asked me last week if I wanted to attend the RAW taping in Toronto, my answer was "Raw's coming to Toronto?".
Seriously, I had no idea this was even happening until last week, which is bizarre when you think of how much time I spend reading about, writing about, listening to and watching pro wrestling in any given week. It just simply wasn't on my radar, but I was absolutely game (especially given I had a prior committment for the following night's SmackDown Live taping..... so it was really this or nothing.
Surprisingly, Rybowski was able to get us unusually-good seats just the night before on StubHub - second row from the 100 levels, and fairly close to ringside. We had a great view and were able to witness one of the better editions of RAW ever to grace Toronto The Good.
