– As noted, Shane McMahon is “running” tonight’s WWE RAW from Los Angeles and the storyline is that WWE officials brought him back due to the overwhelming social media support. F4Wonline.com notes that the original storyline was going to be something related to the post-WrestleMania 32 RAW ratings being through the roof because Shane was in charge. But the ratings weren’t anything special and now they’re going with the social media storyline.
– WWE has reportedly done a tribute video for Hall of Famer Blackjack Mulligan, who passed away last week at the age of 73, but we don’t know if it will air on tonight’s RAW or not.
– We’ve noted how The Undertaker was still booked for the WWE European tour that kicks off this week. F4Wonline.com reports that people in WWE say Taker will not be going on the tour and that Kane will be replacing him on the shows he was booked for. No word yet on why he’s apparently not going on the tour but as noted, Taker was telling people at the WrestleMania 32 after-party that Hell In a Cell against Shane McMahon was his last match.
As noted, Taker was pulled from most of the live events on the tour but still advertised for the April 19th SmackDown tapings in London and the April 20th live event in Newcastle, where he was advertised to team with Kane against Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman. That match was originally Taker and Big Show vs. Luke Harper and Rowan until Harper got injured. If the new report about Taker not going on the tour is true, it looks like that match could be Kane and Big Show vs. Strowman and Rowan.
