Over the summer it was reported that WWE had been considering bringing back themes for its television shows to help boost ratings.
At the time, King Of The Ring and Raw Roulette were two themes reportedly being talked about. WWE did bring back King Of The Ring earlier this month in addition to the Queen’s Crown tournament with both finals taking place this Thursday at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event.
Andrew Zarian from the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast reported today that the Retro Raw theme will be used sometime in January 2022.

It’s still unclear when or even if WWE will bring back the Raw Roulette concept, which started in 2002 and was last used in 2013. NXT has used a similar concept, “Spin The Wheel, Make The Deal,” with its Halloween Havoc special.
WWE has already confirmed that the stipulation for the Mandy Rose vs. NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez match at Halloween Havoc on October 27th will be decided by this gimmick.
