There has been some speculation on who will be backstage for tonight’s RAW in Madison Square Garden. It’s widely accepted that Vince McMahon won’t be backstage for obvious reasons. However, one name who’s reported to be present tonight will also have a huge presence in Nashville this weekend.

According to PW Insider, WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett will be one of five non-RAW talents present backstage for tonight’s RAW. Jarrett already has a busy week ahead of him as he’ll not only be a special referee at SummerSlam but also be involved in Ric Flair’s supposed last match. “The Chosen One” was announced as the referee for the match between The Usos and Street Profits.

Also in attendance for tonight’s RAW are SmackDown’s Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. The Celtic Warrior’s associates, Ridge Holland and Butch(aka Pete Dunne), are also reportedly in attendance. No word on whether the two will wrestle tonight.

Tonight’s RAW is highly anticipated as it marks the 20th anniversary of the luchador legend Rey Mysterio. It will also be the first RAW under the newly appointed Head of Creative, Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque. No matter what goes down, tonight’s episode will surely get a lot of eyeballs.
