Shane’s McMahon’s Raw Underground segments have officially been canceled.
Dave Meltzer noted in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the segments were scrapped a couple of weeks ago because of the latest COVID outbreak among some of the extras from the Performance Center that were used to make noise around the ring.
This week, they announced Dabba-Kato and Arturo Ruas as being drafted to Raw and everyone else that has been around the ring for the Underground segments is cleared.
Meltzer noted that there was fear about bringing in all of those people because it could start another spread of the virus among people on the active Raw roster so the idea is that NXT talent should be kept away from the Raw and SmackDown roster as much as possible.
As of a couple of weeks ago, Shane McMahon did an interview and was talking about the Raw Underground segments and noted that there were tweaks being made so he was not anticipating the end of these segments as of a few weeks ago.
