WWE will continue their Road to WrestleMania 35 with a live episode of RAW tonight from State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA. Several big names are backstage for the show, which will feature Roman Reigns giving an update on his battle with leukemia and the 70th birthday celebration for Ric Flair.
Bruce Prichard – Prichard, who worked for WWE in a high level position that ended in 2008, will make his return to the company as a member of the creative team. PWInsider confirmed he’s in Atlanta and scheduled to start tonight.
Shawn Michaels, Sting, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat – Michaels, Sting and Steamboat were confirmed to be backstage by WrestlingINC. They’re believed to be in-house to take part in Flair’s birthday celebration but of course they could simply be there visiting as well.
Other names spotted in the back include Dana Warrior, Paul Heyman, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
Brock Lesnar, who was advertised at one point, hasn’t been seen.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was in Atlanta over the weekend filming the “Jumanji” sequel so it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibilities he could end up making an appearance but he’s at the arena.
Dave Bautista has also been in Atlanta working on a film project. He’s been linked to a return for WrestleMania 35 but there has also been interest from the upstart All Elite Wrestling company.
