WWE played a video promo tonight officially announcing that Asuka would be “coming soon” to Raw. WWE previously said she would miss 6-8 weeks after her injury at TakeOver on August 19, so she’ll be cleared to wrestle in October.

Several wrestlers live in Florida, but there have been no reports of wrestlers experiencing major damage to their homes from Hurricane Irma, according to Dave Meltzer. There were a lot of power outages throughout Florida, though.
Also, Nielsen, which handles the ratings, has their data offices in Tampa, and they have been closed due to the hurricane, which may delay ratings this week, according to Meltzer.
WWE taped these two matches before Raw tonight for Main Event:
– Rhyno defeated Dash Wilder
– Gran Metalik, Lince Dorado and Mustafa Ali defeated Ariya Daivari, Noam Dar and Tony Nese
