WWE returns to the Madison Square Garden tonight with a power-packed Clash Of Champions go-home edition of Monday Night RAW.
The billion-dollar promotion hasn’t held a show at the MSG for a decade which is why the WWE Universe has sky-high expectations of the flagship show that goes live a few hours from now.
Wrestle Votes is reporting that WWE could be firing on all cylinders to live up to the hype, boosting ticket sales for Sunday’s pay-per-view in the process.
Tonight’s episode of RAW will determine the first finalist of this year’s King Of The Ring tournament as Ricochet, Samoa Joe and Baron Corbin compete in the Triple Threat Semifinal in pursuit of greatness.
The MSG show is also set to feature a special Universal Championship contract signing segment featuring Hall Of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin, titleholder Seth Rollins and challenger Braun Strowman. Per rumors, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt could potentially attack The Rattlesnake with the infamous Mandible Claw.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley reunites with Sasha Banks for the first time ever since WrestleMania 35 to take on RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair in Tag Team action at MSG.
Keep your fingers crossed for an epic episode of RAW as WWE celebrates its homecoming to The World’s Most Famous Arena.
Meanwhile, RAW and SmackDown commentator Corey Graves could be on the verge of becoming brand exclusive with The Blue Brand’s move to FOX next month.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Graves would no longer be appearing on both shows as WWE builds separate broadcast teams for the red and blue brands.
“There are plans for the announcing teams to be separated, at least at this point, which would mean no more Graves on both shows.”
As previously reported, Renee Young could be leaving RAW-USA Network for SmackDown-FOX, serving as the lead host of the WWE talk show on FS1.
