WWE is set to put on their Day 1 episode of RAW. A surprise return is going down, and there are few options. Now we have more information.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE has some big plans for RAW’s surprise return this week. A former WWE Champion is returning, and they are expected to get some time during the second hour of the show.
That being said, there are a lot more questions than answers right now. At this time, it is not 100% who a former WWE Champion qualifies as, but we will soon find out.
Fightful was able to learn of internal chatter back on Friday that the company was close to nailing down an appearance from a former WWE Champion. After it was reported, Triple H added credibility to the rumors, saying “stay tuned.”
We haven’t learned what their baseline or qualifications of “WWE Champion” would be, but as we read it, it appeared to be just as it reads, as opposed to a former Hardcore Champion or something of the like.
No talent or creative sources that we’ve spoken to know who will be revealed as the person. As of early afternoon, the person was designated a full segment mid-show.
The report also noted that they asked, and were told that, “it wouldn’t be Mercedes Mone.”
We will have to see what happens during the Day 1 episode of WWE RAW. Only time will tell which former WWE Champion returns, but there are some interesting options on the table.
Speaking of WWE RAW, Ringside News will be providing live play-by-play coverage of tonight’s show over in our WWE Monday Night RAW coverage hub. It promises to be a memorable episode for many reasons, so it remains to be seen how the episode will turn out.
