In what was one of the most bonkers episodes of Monday Night Raw in recent memory, Shane McMahon returned to WWE TV this past week for the first time in 2020 to introduce Raw Underground.
The new concept is very similar to an idea that a Detroit-based wrestling promotion has been using for a number of years now, and is basically just WWE’s version of Fight Club.
Many fans have questions about what WWE has planned for Raw Underground. However, it has unsurprisingly been reported that even WWE higher-ups are unsure about how the concept will play out.
Ringside News, who have had a pretty decent track record in recent months with backstage reports, are reporting that WWE has no concrete plans for the concept and is making things up on the fly:
“It was told to us by a member of the writing team close to the situation that they are “figuring things out as they go” with “no real plans” in place. If McMahon has an idea then odds are he will try it out.”
The site is also reporting that, as of right now, there are no plans to introduce a Raw Underground Championship in the future. However, they note that plans are constantly changing:
“Ringside News has learned that at this time there is no plan for a Raw Underground Title. It should also be kept in mind that plans are changing week to week right now.”
Taking to Twitter, Ringside News founder Steve Carrier had the following to say about the report:
“We’ve been asked about the new #RAWUnderground segment and what’s in store. Are they bringing in a title belt? Introducing women? We’ve been told that they are “making things up as they go” with “no real plan.” This shouldn’t be a huge surprise, but that’s the update, guys!”
