– Tonight’s episode of WWE RAW will take place from Pittsburgh, PA. The show will focus on the fallout from last night’s Battleground pay-per-view, including the still-vacant WWE Championship, Big Show’s involvement in the main event and the Rhodes Family’s victory over The Shield.
Advertised for the show are Triple H, Stephanie, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, CM Punk, The Shield, Ryback, Curtis Axel, Paul Heyman, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, The Wyatt Family, Damien Sandow and more. Vince McMahon is also advertised to appear, but he’s been advertised for the past several weeks and has not been on television.
It’s worth noting that Rob Van Dam, who lost to Alberto Del Rio last night and is rumored to be in the midst of contract negotiations with WWE, is not scheduled for RAW.
