During a pre-taped segment that ran on Monday’s Christmas Eve edition of Raw, Vince McMahon made several announcements.
McMahon, who was dressed as Santa Claus, stated that John Cena would be returning to both Raw and SmackDown, although did not state when. Cena is scheduled for 13 live events, beginning December 26th through January 14th, although Cena had previously stated he would not be appearing on television. Cena is scheduled for this Saturday’s event in Pittsburgh, which is a SmackDown taping, as well as January 7th in Orlando and January 14th in Memphis, which are Raw tapings.
He added that in 2019, the WWE would be introducing tag titles for the women’s division.
The final announcement was that a steel cage match between Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre will take place on next week’s episode of Raw. Next week’s show will be taped this Friday in Detroit to air on New Year’s Eve.
