STAMFORD, Conn., May 2, 2011 –WWE© (NYSE:WWE) today announced that it will host the biggest party to celebrate our country’s patriotism on “Monday Night Raw®” airing live on USA at 9 p.m. ET from American Airlines Arena in Miami.

It is fitting that WWE celebrate this historic day in our country’s ongoing fight against terrorism, as WWE SmackDown® was the first public assembly after the tragedy of September 11th, taking place live from Houston on September 13, 2001.

As part of tonight’s show, WWE will replay Superstar John Cena® announcing the news about Osama Bin Laden to the crowd at last night’s Extreme Rules® pay-per-view in which the crowd spontaneously chanted U-S-A.
