Update (6:22 p.m. ET): F4WOnline is reporting that Dave Bautista will be returning on RAW tonight and is being kept hidden backstage.


PWInsider is reporting that a number of names are backstage for tonight’s Monday Night RAW from Atlanta, Georgia, airing live in a little over two hours.

Sting, Shawn Michaels and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat are all backstage at RAW tonight and are expected to take part in a segment for Ric Flair’s 70th birthday.

Charlotte Flair, who may take part in the segment with her father, is also backstage along with Becky Lynch meaning a potential segment is possible between the two.

It should be noted that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is currently in Atlanta filming the sequel to “Jumanji.” As reported earlier, Johnson surprised fans in Atlanta over the weekend during a screening for “Fighting With My Family.” As of now, Johnson is not backstage at the RAW taping despite being local.

The same report noted that Dave Bautista is also in Atlanta filming a movie. It was reported a few weeks ago that Batista is back in talks with WWE about a potential return to the company, including a potential match at WrestleMania this year.
