More On Vince McMahon's RAW Return, Two NXT Superstars Released, Possible Third Departure

More On Vince McMahon's RAW Return, Two NXT Superstars Released, Possible Third Departure
- As noted, WWE has announced that Vince McMahon will return to WWE TV on Monday's post-TLC RAW from Sacramento to "shake things up" once again. Below is the announcement on his return:
Mr. McMahon returns to Raw to shake things up this Monday night

One week after Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins placed the blame for Monday Night Raw's recent decline squarely on the shoulders of "General Manager-Elect" Baron Corbin, WWE Chairman and CEO Mr. McMahon will return to the red brand to shake things up, WWE.com can confirm.

The landmark appearance of The Chairman comes one night after WWE TLC, where Corbin intends to be named the permanent General Manager of Raw following a forfeit victory over the injured Braun Strowman in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match, per the stipulation handed down by Commissioner Stephanie McMahon. However, rumors abound that The Monster Among Men could make an appearance at this Sunday's WWE TLC event and stop The Lone Wolf from assuming total control of Team Red.

With Mr. McMahon's return imminent, however, Corbin could have a lot to answer for regardless of his position. How will The Chairman shake up Monday Night Raw, and who will benefit — or suffer — as a result?

Whatever Mr. McMahon has in store, you won't want to miss it this Monday night on Raw, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
- NXT Superstar Nick Miller has reportedly been released from the company, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet and Dave Meltzer of F4Wonline.com.

The door is said to be open for Miller to return to the company if he wants. He recently returned to Australia when his baby was born and decided to stay, according to Meltzer.

Miller's tag team partner Shane Thorne is still under contract to WWE. The Mighty just wrestled on NXT TV this past week, losing to Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. They both signed with WWE in 2016 but never held the NXT Tag Team Titles and Thorne spent almost a year out of action with an injury, returning to the ring in September 2017.

Taishan Dong has also been released from his WWE developmental deal. Meltzer noted that he was actually released some time ago. Dong was a 7-foot-tall boxer from China who had an undefeated record. Dong was signed this past summer after working the October 2017 WWE Performance Center tryouts.

There are rumors on NXT UK Superstar Tucker being released because his profile was removed from the WWE website but his departure has not been confirmed. Tucker, a veteran of the UK indie scene, participated in both of the WWE UK Title tournaments. He lost in the first round to Tyler Bate in 2017 and then to Joe Coffey in the first round of the 2018 tournament. He has been used in the new NXT UK brand.
