Just like last week’s SmackDown show, tonight’s Monday Night Raw is set to take place at the Performance Center in Orlando. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all WWE shows for the foreseeable future will likely be filmed at the training facility.
Including tonight’s show, there are only three more episodes of Raw before WrestleMania, that is if the show takes place as planned on April 5. As a result, several top WWE stars have been advertised for the broadcast.
It was confirmed on last week’s show that The Undertaker will be appearing on Raw this week. He will join former WWE Champion AJ Styles in the ring for a WrestleMania contract signing.
Also confirmed for the show is Stone Cold Steve Austin. The Hall of Famer is appearing on the show purely because it takes place on 3/16.
Paige was set to appear on SmackDown last week, but plans changed when SmackDown moved to the Performance Center. Some speculated that with Raw also being filmed at the PC, the two legends may not appear on the show.
However, PWInsider is reporting that both Steve Austin and The Undertaker are in Orlando and will be appearing on the broadcast:
“The Undertaker and Steve Austin are already in Orlando for tomorrow’s Raw, PWInsider.com has been told. So, if you were wondering if they would miss the show at the last minute, that is not going to be the case.”
Yesterday, Steve Austin shared the following video on Twitter, seemingly drinking a beer while on his private plane to Orlando for Monday Night Raw.

It will be strange to see both Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker appear on the broadcast without a live crowd, but WWE’s hand has been forced due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
