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.
It was also noted that The Rock was in Pasadena for College Gameday. That is just a couple of hours from WWE RAW’s location this week. It was reported that “when we brought that up to a WWE higher up, they said we made a compelling argument, but wouldn’t confirm or deny.”
With that being mentioned, the current situation raises more questions than it provides answers. Presently, the identification of a former WWE Champion remains uncertain at 100%, but clarity on the matter is expected to emerge shortly.
The Rock was last seen on WWE television when he stopped by SmackDown in Denver. He happened to be in the area, as he was at the Pat McAfee show, which was stationed in Boulder, Colorado that week.
We will have to see who WWE is able to bring back this week for the Day 1 RAW. If The Rock does return, it might not be a good idea to place any big money on an extensive return by any means.
