Last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw was one of the most bonkers three hours of WWE television in quite some time, and that’s saying something. The show featured a lot of head-scratching moments.
One of the key things to happen on last night’s show was the introduction of Raw Underground, which was spearheaded by Shane McMahon. The concept has unsurprisingly split opinions online.
Taking to Fightful Select (subscription required), Sean Ross Sapp has detailed some interesting pieces of information that have come from backstage regarding the new Raw Undeground concept:
“As of midnight EST, WWE were still filming content for next week’s WWE Raw Underground. We’re told that there were other hosts besides Shane McMahon suggested, and the “Underground” name had been thrown around for other projects in the past years. Much of the main roster had no idea what was even being filmed today.”
Sapp is also reporting that WWE decided to reveal that a new stable was going to debut on Raw last night (even though they didn’t really) following news leaking on Pro Wrestling Sheet earlier in the day:
“WWE’s social media team also jumped the gun on tonight’s “faction news,” after word of the new team leaked on Pro Wrestling Sheet.”
