WWE announced a huge move that saw the free-version of WWE Network being rolled out for the fans. The list of content included in the free bundle featured a list of original content, including the return of RAW Talk.
After WWE’s huge success with Talking Smack in 2016, they introduced RAW Talk, a similar show as Talking Smack, but on Monday nights after RAW.
WWE got rid of both the shows in early 2018, after the switch back to dual-branded PPVs. However, the introduction of the free version will revive the popular after-show, with Charly Caruso and Samoa Joe taking up the hosting duties.
Samoa Joe has been working as a commentator for the last few weeks on RAW as he recovers from his injury, and will get to showcase his top-notch promo skills on RAW Talk, which returns on the Network after RAW tonight at 11.00 PM.
PWInsider initially reported that both RAW Talk and Talking Smack will be making a return to the Network, but WWE has only confirmed RAW Talk as of now.
Talking Smack featured Renee Young and then-retired GM of SmackDown, Daniel Bryan, as hosts, and quickly became a must-watch show due to its unscripted format and laidback style.
