Report: WWE Cancels Raw Underground

The fight club lasted 8 weeks...

Raw Underground has been noticeably absent from Monday Night Raw for the past couple of weeks. Fightful Select reported in late-September that WWE opted not to tape any segments for the September 28 Raw because of the latest COVID-19 outbreak within the company, but the shoot-style fight club then failed to return on October 5 or October 12. 

Dave Meltzer has now reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Raw Underground "for right now is considered done." The company is reportedly worried about another coronavirus outbreak and have decided to keep NXT talent and main roster Superstars apart as much as possible. As Performance Center trainees and outside extras were featured in the crowd and in the ring, the decision was made to cancel Shane McMahon's concept. 

What this means for the likes of Riddick Moss, Dabba-Kato and Arturo Ruas remains to be seen. All three Superstars were featured prominently on Raw Underground, but if WWE will use them on Raw is currently unknown.
