– WWE has confirmed Ivar vs. Dolph Ziggler will take place in a Raw Underground match during next week’s Raw. It’ll be interesting to see if WWE continues to film Underground segments from the Performance Center, or if those will be moved to the Amway Center outside of the interactive, technology-filled “ThunderDome.”

– Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke, former MMA fighters who signed with NXT in 2018, made their official Raw debuts last night (results here). Shafir competed in an Underground match against indie wrestler Brandi Lauren until Nia Jax interrupted. It looks like WWE may be setting up a Jax vs. Shayna Baszler Underground fight.
– There are rumors making rounds that WWE could introduce a new championship specifically for Raw Underground. Nothing has been confirmed as of this writing.
Supposedly the idea of a Raw Underground Championship was pitched. Suggestions included it looking beat up like the Hardcore belt with spray paint and simulated brick texturing.
