WWE is planning a big show for tonight’s Raw episode as more viewers are expected to tune in than usual due to Saturday’s SummerSlam event. It’s also the first show that Triple H has full control over, as last week’s events were penned by Vince McMahon before he resigned from the company.
WrestleVotes reports that the episode looks good and that it is a packed show. The USA Network has also offered to let the first hour be ad-free if WWE wants it.
WWE has yet to announce any matches or segments for the show. As previously reported, tonight’s episode sounds like it’s going to be a “statement” show.
Leading up to SummerSlam, it was reported that Triple H, now in charge of creative, had planned a surprise. That turned out to be the return of Bayley, IYO Sky (Io Shirai) and Dakota Kai, who formed a new faction.

Two big names are also slated to return to the company soon, possibly as early as tonight.
