Report: Plans For Popular Faction To Reunite On WWE Raw
A popular faction could be getting back together on WWE Raw
A popular faction from NXT could be set to reunite on Monday Night Raw.
According to WRKD Wrestling, "preliminary plans" are in place for The Way to reunite on Raw. When the possible reunion will take place is unknown.
The Way were a popular stable on NXT between 2020 and 2021. The group initially formed as a heel faction in December 2020 with Johnny Gargano, Austin Theory, Candice LeRae, and Indi Hartwell. The stable were prominently featured on NXT as heels during Gargano's third reign as North American Champion and LeRae and Hartwell's reign as NXT Women's Tag Team Champions.
The group began to turn babyface in the summer of 2021 during Hartwell's romance angle with Dexter Lumis and The Tortured Artist ended up being accepted as the fifth member of The Way, eventually marrying Hartwell in September of that year on the first episode following the NXT 2.0 rebrand.
The Way began to splinter soon after as Austin Theory was drafted to Monday Night Raw, while LeRae went on maternity leave. Gargano then left WWE when his contract expired in December 2021, confirming the dissolution of The Way in the process.
Gargano would return to WWE in August 2022, with Candice LeRae joining him back in the company soon after. Lumis has also reunited with Gargano in recent months and they have teamed together on WWE TV. Hartwell looks set to link back up with Lumis on the main roster after he carried his wife out of NXT on May 2.
A fully-fledged Way reunion is unlikely to take place until Johnny Gargano returns to WWE TV, though. The former NXT Champion has been out of action since the beginning of April after re-aggravating a shoulder injury.
Austin Theory also appears unlikely to be a part of the stable as he is currently a heel and was drafted to SmackDown in the latest WWE Draft.
