This is according to Benjamin Tucker of the Pro Wrestling Torch, who is at tonight’s show in Phoenix, Arizona. According to him, WWE testing his graphics before the show.

WWE teased the return of a authority figure in its preview for tonight’s Raw.

With SmackDown going live on USA Network Tuesday, July 19, the blue brand’s former authority figures have resurfaced to reveal their intentions to take the show to new heights during The New Era. First, it was Teddy Long who returned, not losing a step — or his affinity for tag team matches — since he last ran SmackDown full-time back in 2012. Then, Corporate Kane materialized to use his conflict resolution skills to curry favor with Shane and Stephanie McMahon. Will we see this trend continue on this week’s edition of Monday night’s hottest show?

Laurinaitis, who works behind the scenes for WWE, served as the General Manager of Raw from 2011 until June of 2012. Since then he has made occasional appearances on WWE television, including inducting The Bushwhackers into the WWE Hall of Fame last year.

Tucker also revealed a set change for the show.
