WWE — Raw

The Houston edition of WWE — Raw will not be a typical one. Oh sure, you’ll get the usual collection of hard-hitting action, blood-boiling promos and fun crowd chants, but right now the WWE is on the road to SummerSlam. What that means for fans is to expect bigger because you don’t build to the second biggest show of the year by running in place. With rumors of a Brock Lesner return on the horizon, this may be your one shot to see The Beast Incarnate live and in person. And even if he doesn’t show up, you’ll still get to boo or cheer John Cena, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns and the rest of the usual muscled-up suspects.

6:30 p.m. Toyota Center, 1510 Polk. For information, call 866‑446‑8849 or visit houstontoyotacenter.com. $20 to $85.
Mon., July 28, 6:30 p.m., 2014
