UPDATEDx2: New Rumor on Shane McMahon’s Announcement Tonight

UPDATE 2: A last-minute rumor is making the rounds about Shane McMahon’s reported announcement to take place on tonight’s Raw. Both the Voices of Wrestling Twitter account and Florida reporter Jon Alba are reporting that the rumor is that Shane will announce a new shoot fight-style tournament or event. Alba reported that a source told him it would “indeed be about some sort of shoot-fight style…thing,” although he noted that it was not confirmed. This coincides with the VoW account saying that the announcement, which WrestleVotes said would be a “new concept” that caused a lot of raised eyebrows, is “something akin to Brawl 4 All … complete with ‘female dancers’ hired as extras to provide ‘atmosphere.'”

Again, this is not confirmed and we’ll obviously know more very soon. WWE infamously did the Brawl for All back in 1998, which was a disaster on most measurable levels to the point that it was even the focus of a Dark Side of the Ring episode.

UPDATE: Shane McMahon’s return on Raw is being done in order to introduce a new concept, according to a new rumor. Everyone’s favorite news-breaking Twitter account in @WrestleVotes posted on Monday afternoon to report that McMahon’s return is being done in order to introduce the new concept, which has allegedly “raised some eyebrows backstage” at the WWE Performance Center.

The details of what’s the concept is exactly have not yet been revealed. As also reported, WWE has announced the arrival of a new faction that will “cause chaos and shake up the organization’s structure.” All of this appears to have caused the more traditional kind of chaos that we’re used to with Raw — namely, heavy rewrites on the day of production and late-stage additions to the show.

ORIGINAL: WWE has announced that ‘The Best in the World’ Shane McMahon will make his return to the company on tonight’s episode of RAW. The episode airs tonight on the USA Network live from the WWE Performance Center. Here’s the updated lineup:

* Shane McMahon returns
* Drew McIntyre reacts to Randy Orton’s attack
* Asuka looking for revenge against Sasha Banks & Bayley
* WWE United States Championship: Apollo Crews (c) vs. MVP
