Shane McMahon Introduces 'Raw Underground,' Babatunde Returns With New Name

The first rule about Raw Underground is that it's live on television. 

On Monday's WWE Raw, Shane McMahon introduced a new concept called Raw Underground. The concept is basically MMA with competitors "fighting" in a no roped ring with fans wearing masks standing around the ring and dancers off to the side.
