The August 1st edition of Monday Night Raw could be one for the ages, with the USA offering to allow the show to run commercial free for the first hour.
Following a night of surprises and numerous twists and turns at SummerSlam, expectation among fans is running high ahead of Raw.
With Triple H in charge of creative, fans have already been treated to the return of the previously released Dakota Kai, as well as long-term injury absentees Bayley and Io Shirai. There was also the small matter of Becky Lynch becoming a babyface and embracing Bianca Belair all in the same segment.
With Raw just hours away it has now been reported by WrestleVotes that the show looks “really good” and is a “packed” episode. Furthermore, the USA Network have offered WWE the chance to run the opening hour of the broadcast commercial free.
I’m told RAW tonight looks really good as of now, and is a packed show. So much so, USA Network is allowing the 1st hour to be commercial free if WWE wants.

The news comes just minutes after news emerged claiming that WWE have “reached an agreement” with Sasha Banks and Naomi to return to the company. In addition, the pair could even be back as early as August 1st.
Neither Sasha Banks or Naomi have appeared on WWE television since walking out of the May 16th edition of Monday Night Raw. Following what was reported as a row over creative, the Women’s Tag Team Champions left the taping while it was in progress.
