Here’s What Happened When ‘Raw Underground’ Returned To WWE WWE

Raw Underground was one of WWE’s most polarising ideas in recent memory, used back in 2020 as a way to add more ‘edge’ to the final hour of Monday Night Raw.

After an absence of over two years, Raw Underground was announced for a return, with Damon Kemp challenging Eddy Thorpe to an ‘NXT Underground’ match for tonight’s (July 4) episode of NXT.

Thorpe was coached by Olympic Gold Medalist and Kemp’s real-life brother Gable Steveson ahead of the match, which took place on tonight’s show.

The rules for the match saw no counts or pinfalls, with victory only coming via submission, TKO or knockout.

Steveson was in the corner of Thorpe opposite his brother for the match, which featured Performance Center trainees around ringside much like the original Raw Underground.

The match spilled to the outside many times, with Kemp being ran into the ring post to injure his arm, allowing Thorpe to defeat Kemp by TKO.

After the match, Kale Dixon got into the face of Steveson, who tossed him and several other Performance Center trainees around the ring to end the segment.
