RAW Underground debuted this week during WWE’s flagship show on Monday Night. The segments from this section will feature some shoot-style fighting. Many of the fans are coming up with newer fight concepts for these segments whereas some are criticizing it. But the good thing is that it garnered the needed attention and thus increases the TV ratings for Raw.
The company will now move ahead with the Raw Underground concept anyway as they’ve already filmed contents for the upcoming episodes. Meanwhile, CM Punk and WWE show host and announcer Renee Young has shown interest to fight in this scene.
WWE Raw Underground: CM Punk & Renee Young Want To Fight Here
Last night, a Watch Along episode aired on FS1 featuring CM Punk, Booker T, Renee Young, Bret Hart, and Finn Balor. They watched SummerSlam 1992 and had a discussion on a number of wrestling-related topics just like they used to have on WWE Backstage on FS1.
During the conversation, the topic of RAW Underground came up and CM Punk shared his thoughts on this. He shared pretty much interest in this saying that he’s become a fan of the concept, already. Punk then went on to say that the concept is pretty “cool” and that “no-holds-barred” fights with strippers dancing around the ring is all that he wanted to see.
“The idea that Shane McMahon and all these people would be in the Performance Center for the whole three hours and they cut into what they’re doing in various segments is pretty cool. Three hours of no holds barred fights and strippers, that’s all I want to see.”
Booker T then added saying that the first wrestler he thought of while watching Raw Underground was CM Punk. He always wondered if this could drag Punk back to the WWE, for real.
Renee Young who lost her hosting gig on WWE Backstage due to the cancellation of the show on FS1, also showed her interest to feature on Raw Underground in a certain capacity. Women haven’t been booked but plenty more contents are yet to air and there’s always a chance.
Renee Young said she would be down to compete against SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley on WWE Raw Underground. This is what he had to say when the topic was nurtured during the SummerSlam 1992 Watch Party.
“I would fight Bayley. I would for sure fight Bayley!. She taunts me all the time, she’s always calling me out. She’s calling me out in different interviews saying she wants to fight me. So I’m game. My cardio is at peak level.”

Renee Young added saying “I don’t have anything better to do, I’m down.” She doesn’t have her in-ring gear made, but she will work something out while preparing for the match against a woman who’s been constantly taking a shot at her.
