WWE is set to make a return to the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL, for tonight’s episode of RAW, and due to the high demand for tickets, the company has decided to give the show a different visual presentation.

The focal point of tonight’s show will be the return of CM Punk, who is expected to address the audience with a promo. Despite being sidelined with a torn triceps, Punk’s appearance has generated significant anticipation, although the content of his speech remains a mystery.

Confirmed matches for the evening include Jey Uso versus Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn taking on Bronson Reed, Ricochet facing JD McDonagh, Andrade squaring off against Ivar, and Ivy Nile going head-to-head with Candice LeRae. Additionally, WWE will be announcing more matches for WrestleMania 40 during the broadcast.

In response to the overwhelming ticket demand, WWE has opted to modify its production plans by utilizing a smaller entranceway, thereby allowing for more seats to be made available after the initial sell-out with the regular configuration.


The show will feature a minimalist stage set reminiscent of last year’s Survivor Series, which adds a unique visual flair to the weekly broadcast, enhancing the overall viewing experience for the audience.

What are your expectations for CM Punk’s return to WWE on tonight’s episode of Raw? Are you excited to see how he addresses the audience and what he has to say?
