Monday’s three-hour Raw from Montreal, Canada has several items in-play leading into the Night of Champions PPV. Notably, WWE will complete hype for C.M. Punk vs. John Cena for the WWE Title at Sunday’s PPV.
A factor in the title match hype is Bret Hart, who is returning to a WWE show in Montreal for the first time in nearly 15 years since the Montreal Screwjob in November 1997.
Another Hall of Famer advertised for the Raw taping is Pat Patterson, who will be part of an off-air tribute.
Local advertising reads, “It will be a special night in Montreal as the WWE Universe pays tribute to one of Montreal’s own, WWE Hall of Famer Pat Patterson! Be part of Pat Patterson Appreciation Night!” Also advertised for the live crowd is Punk vs. Cena in a WWE Title match.
Also scheduled for the actual Raw episode is follow-up on World Title match hype involving Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio, the latest on Raw GM A.J. Lee cracking under pressure last week on Raw, and more Night of Champions PPV matches announced.
