Shock & Raw

It's only been eight days since SummerSlam, the WWE's marquee dog-days pay-per-view showdown, but the fed'll be shifting gears from the event's aftermath to ramping up for September's Night of Champions. Monday Night RAW will be a test of which grapplers can extend their SummerSlam heat.

The usual suspects of the WWE’s top tier like John Cena, CM Punk, and Alberto Del Rio will be in the house, but one of the more intriguing undercard figures might be Rob Van Dam whose recent return after a six-year absence led to a shot at the US championship belt. Rampaging cultists the Wyatt Family and the always-meddling McMahons will be on hand to stir up the chaos as well.

WWE’s Monday Night RAW rattles the US Airways Center, 201 East Jefferson Street, starting at 4:30 p.m. August 26. Tickets range from $20 to $95. Visit for more information.
