WWE Raw Preview
Another show without fans is scheduled to take place on Monday night from the performance center in Orlando, Florida. While SmackDown was a relative success, it will be interesting to see WWE fill three hours of programming without a crowd. Even under the circumstances, Stone Cold Steve Austin is still appearing for his scheduled 3:16 Day appearance. In a tweet he sent it didn’t look like Austin was overly excited to be travelling.

Matt Hardy Addresses “Twist of Fate” Trademark
During SmackDown on Friday, Jeff Hardy hit a move known to fans as a Twist of Fate. Commentary instead referred to the move as Twist of Fury, causing some fans to react with fury. Matt Hardy cleared up claims that he took the trademark for himself on Twitter:
I DID NOT. The @WWE & Jeff are completely free to use "Twist of Fate." The change 100% came on their end. I wouldn’t ever do anything to hinder my brother. I’m thrilled to see him back on #WWE TV, looking healthy & happy. https://t.co/L0xp5QyjpU
