Following Raw, the WWE Network will broadcast "Table for 3" with Shawn Michaels, AJ Styles and Kevin Nash.

WWE will broadcast Smackdown Live and 205 Live tomorrow from Des Moines, Iowa at the Wells Fargo Arena.    Tyler Breeze was interviewed by the Des Moines Register to promote the show, which you can read by clicking here.  When asked about fans who criticize talents not being utilized to their fullest extent, Breeze commented, "This is something a lot of people like to talk about.  When you’re here and you’re a part of the WWE, it’s bigger than what actually happens. Smackdown Live is a two-hour show. Fortunately we have such a talented roster that there’s only so many minutes and sometimes you’re not always going to be the one to get those minutes. It’s just a matter of time. The people’s voices are heard, and if they want to see Breezango, they’re going to get it. They just have to be patient.”
