WWE returns to their WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida for a special empty arena episode of Monday Night Raw, as the Road to WrestleMania 36 continues tonight -- on 3:16 Day -- with the returns of WWE Hall Of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Undertaker and Edge.
Tonight marks the third straight live television broadcast shot without an audience out of the company's official state-of-the-art training facility due to the live event bans stemming from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic.
Last week's NXT On USA show on Wednesday and Friday Night SmackDown show two days later were both filmed inside of an empty arena at the WWE Performance Center.
Ahead of his return on tonight's show, the official WWE website re-released their 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin to celebrate #316Day this Monday on Raw trailer with updated graphics that read "TONIGHT" instead of "MONDAY" as in the original (see above).
The official description for the Raw trailer video reads: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin to celebrate #316Day tonight on Raw. WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin will be at Raw to celebrate #316Day, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
As noted, "The Texas Rattlesnake" has already been confirmed to be in Orlando, FL., the site of tonight's show at the WWE PC on "3:16 Day" (March 16th), along with two other WWE legends.
He tweeted the following video to promote his appearance on tonight's show, which leads in to a new installment of "The Broken Skull Sessions" on the WWE Network featuring Bret "The Hitman" Hart.

In addition to "The Bionic Redneck," fellow WWE Hall Of Famer "The Rated-R Superstar" Edge has also been confirmed to be in Orlando for tonight's show, where his red-hot rivalry against former Rated RKO partner "The Viper" Randy Orton ramps up as the Road to WrestleMania 36 continues.
Edge posted the following tweet on Sunday evening to inform his fans that he was rocking out to some Pearl Jam music as he made the drive in his pickup truck to Orlando for his advertised appearance on RAW.
Speaking of the Road to WrestleMania 36, The Undertaker and A.J. Styles will both be in the building at the WWE PC this evening, as the official contract signing for the match between "The Phenom" and "The Phenomenal One" on "The Grandest Stage of Them All" goes down on tonight's show.
WWE.com posted the following teaser for the WrestleMania 36 contract signing segment last Monday night:
The Undertaker and AJ Styles to sign their WrestleMania contract
AJ Styles crossed about every line he could think of when he challenged The Undertaker to a WrestleMania match, and then he made it personal.
Now, he'll have the chance to say it to The Deadman's face.
A contract signing between Styles and The Phenom has been set for tonight's Raw, wherein their WrestleMania match will be made. Given Styles' various insults to The Phenom's reputation, his abilities, and his family, it's safe to say at least one party will be very incentivized to attend. For a Superstar who prizes himself on creating moments, Styles is setting himself up one for one of the most memorable in recent history. Whether he makes it to the end of it, of course, is another matter entirely.
Don't miss what is sure to be an unforgettable contract singing on Monday Night Raw tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.
