By Mike Johnson on 2016-04-25 09:53:00

After a LONG international tour, the WWE roster is back in the United States.  There are a LOT of tired wrestlers looking forward to seeing their own beds.

Tonight, WWE will broadcast Raw from Hartford, CT at the XL Center. Set for the Raw broadcast is The Usos against Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.  Locally advertised as the main event is Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose & AJ Styles vs. Sheamus & Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens, so that's likely the dark match.  Shane McMahon is slated to appear.  Titus O'Neil is slated to be at the taping, so he could return from his suspension at the taping as well.

Tomorrow, WWE will tape Smackdown and Main Event in Manchester, New Hampshire at the Verizon Wireless Center.

After the TV tapings, the roster is off until this Sunday's WWE Payback PPV.  Obviously, we will have ongoing coverage of that here on PWInsider.com.

The "Camp WWE" animated series will debut next week on the WWE Network.

The latest edition of the Edge & Christian Show (which you should be going out of your way to watch) will debut after Raw.  It features the following preview: "Update your passports and get your shots because you're invited to Edge and Christian's International Adventure!"

While overseas for the European tour, Alberto Del Rio did an interview with SoloWrestling.com and intimated the League of Nations was finishing up.

Chris Jericho appeared on "Talking Dead" last night on AMC.

Blade Runner 2, which will feature Dave Bautista, has been moved up from January 2018 to an October 2017 release.

WWE is releasing a Canadian-exclusive DVD titled "Our Nation’s Pride: The Best of Canadian Superstars" next month.

Tomorrow, WWE will release "The U.S. Championship: A Legacy of Greatness" tomorrow on DVD and Blu-Ray, looking at the United States championship from it's original version in the NWA and Jim Crockett Promotions to the current incarnation since WWE revived the championship about a decade ago.  Promotional material for the set reads, "The United States Championship is a symbol of excellence that has been a staple of sports entertainment for over four decades.
