What’s the story?

As first reported by WrestleVotes on Twitter, both Drew McIntyre and Big Cass have been spotted in Hartford, Connecticut, earlier in the day, ahead of tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw which takes place in the very same city later today.

In case you didn’t know…

Former NXT Champion Drew McIntyre last competed in the WWE back in November of 2017, when he lost the NXT Championship to Andrade “Cien” Almas at NXT TakeOver: WarGames—marking his first loss in NXT in the process.

After the match against Almas, it was apparently revealed that McIntyre had suffered a torn bicep towards the end of the match and ever since the devastating injury, the Scottish superstar hasn’t competed in a WWE ring.

On the other hand, Big Cass was last seen competing in a WWE ring on the night after SummerSlam 2017 when the 7ft. tall monster lost a Brooklyn Street Fight with his former tag team partner Enzo Amore, due to referee stoppage after Cass had suffered a legitimate knee injury during the match.


Shortly afterward, it was revealed by doctors that Cass suffered a torn ACL and following surgery, it was also reported that Cass would be sidelined for a total of nine months.

The heart of the matter

On tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw, we will finally witness the 2018 Superstar Shake-up and as per a previous report, several superstars from SmackDown Live are also apparently in Hartford ahead of tonight’s Raw, which pretty much gives us an idea of the fact that we will indeed witness several superstars finally change brands in the WWE and eventually jump ship to the red brand of Raw.


Among other notable faces, it has now been speculated by WrestleVotes that former NXT Champion Drew McIntyre and Big Cass are also included in the list of surprises who could possibly show up for tonight’s Superstar Shake-up on Monday Night Raw.

What’s next?

As of right now, nothing has been confirmed just yet regarding McIntyre and Cass potentially making their debut and return respectively and WrestleVotes’ report is completely based on a particular speculation.

Looks like we’ll have to tune in for tonight’s Raw in order to find out what surprises WWE has in store for us.

Author’s take

Personally, I hope that we get to see Drew McIntyre make his main roster debut on Smackdown Live, but first, I believe that McIntyre should return to NXT and compete in the developmental brand for a while before making a jump to the main roster.
