Raw Underground axed for now

Raw Underground, the fight club-type segments on Monday Night Raw have been axed for now, just weeks after WWE introduced the format in the third hour of its flagship show.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that the decision to cancel the format for now stems from COVID-19 and the possibility of another outbreak. NXT talent and WWE Performance Center trainees are used as the crowd around the rope-less ring and there’s usually no social distancing practiced among them.

With the recent outbreak from a few weeks ago, WWE is worried that bringing NXT and PC talent to Raw every week would increase the likelihood of spreading the virus if one of the talent tests positive.

Shane McMahon introduced the Raw Underground concept on the August 3 episode of Raw and held weekly segments in the final hour of the three-hour show. Raw Underground has not featured on Raw since the September 28 episode.
