WWE is bringing a show to the ThunderDome this week that needs to counter the College Football Championship game. They also need a big main event to gain any traction tonight, and Drew McIntyre cannot wrestle due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Triple H is scheduled for WWE RAW tonight. The backstage rumor right now is that he will be wrestling on the show this week according to Wrestling Inc. This was not confirmed by the company, but it makes sense because he is kicking off the show tonight.
Randy Orton will still wrestle in the main event. Triple H starting off the broadcast would give them three hours to hype a match. Orton and Triple H also have a long history with each other, and that really helps.
This could be a very interesting show if WWE plays The Game once again. Ironically, Triple H was just saying on The Bump how coming back for a match after so much time away from the ring is one of the most difficult things he is asked to do.
