WWE knows that the upcoming month for them is going to be huge and they are doing whatever they can to make it perfect. Later this month, NXT is going to debut on the USA Network and SmackDown Live moves to FOX in early October. Along with that, WWE wants to build momentum for the TV debut of All Elite Wrestling, and tonight’s Monday Night Raw from Madison Square Garden is being presented as a monster show.
On Tuesday night, SmackDown Live will also take place from Madison Square Garden and it is designed to be a big evening as well. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, The Undertaker will be appearing on the show, but it is not expected that he’s doing anything more than showing up.
The official website of WWE has released the full preview for this week’s Monday Night Raw and it is a stacked card.
