A new concept will reportedly be introduced on tonight’s WWE RAW episode.
It was just reported by @Wrestlevotes that Shane McMahon is being brought back to WWE TV on tonight’s RAW “to introduce a new concept” to the red brand show. There’s no word yet on details, but it was said that “the concept itself has raised some eyebrows backstage” at the WWE Performance Center today.
As noted earlier, Shane is making his return tonight, his first appearance since losing the Career vs. Career match to Kevin Owens on October 4 of last year. It was reported earlier today by Dave Meltzer that Shane is being brought back as a response to WWE fearing a record-low rating for tonight’s show.
There’s no word on if Shane’s return and the new concept has anything to do with the new stable that WWE has confirmed for tonight. The storyline is that the stable will reportedly bring “chaos” to RAW. You can click here for backstage notes from RAW, and you can click here for WWE’s stable announcement.
