Fightful Select reports that an original WWE Raw script called for Samoa Joe to appear on tonight’s show as it would’ve been in relation to promoting the relaunch of NXT on Tuesday night.
As it stands right now, it’s unclear whether he will still appear on the show as he relinquished the NXT Title on Sunday due to an injury. Here’s the card for tonight’s Raw:
– WWE United States Champion Damian Priest will host an Open Challenge with the title on the line
– WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Natalya vs. Rhea Ripley
– Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Shayna Baszler in a non-title bout
– The New Day, Mansoor and Mustafa Ali vs. AJ Styles, Omos, T-BAR and MACE
– WWE Champion Bobby Lashley defends against RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton
