WWE is also promoting Logan Paul's return to "Raw" tonight.

Our live coverage will begin at 8 PM ET.

Please share today's Viewing Party coverage on social media and chime in with your thoughts in the comments section below.

We're on the air. We go straight into the arena where we're introduced to WWE Global Ambassador Titus O'Neil. O'Neil is alone in the ring under a spotlight. He talks about entering WWE, becoming a WWE Tag Team Champion, and being a Warrior Award recipient. But he says he's now reached the pinnacle of his achievements by becoming "your WWE Global Ambassador".

O'Neil says he'll represent WWE around the world and spread goodwill. He talks about putting smiles on people's faces and reaching out to military men and women serving around the globe. He says it's all about doing good. He says you'll never hear them talk about politics or religion or any other topic that's divisive because this is a place where WWE wants to make sure everyone has a good time.

O'Neil says, "Welcome to Monday Night Raw!"

Jimmy Smith, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves are on commentary and welcome us to the show. They throw to a video recap of "Raw" Women's Champion Bianca Belair's dealings last Monday with Carmella and Becky Lynch.

Bianca Belair makes her entrance, microphone in hand. Belair says what Lynch did last week was foul. Belair says this is not the Becky Lynch "WrestleMania comeback story".

Carmella enters with a microphone in hand. She says Belair is making a mistake overlooking her. Carmella says if Belair is counted out tonight, she will be the new "Raw" Women's Champion.
