As today is the Fourth of July, a lot of our favorite Monday shows will sadly not be airing new episodes this evening. Is Monday Night Raw one of them? What’s the show’s schedule for today, July 4th?

Luckily for Raw fans, although July 4th is a federal holiday, WWE performers do not have the day off, and Monday Night Raw will indeed air an episode tonight at the regularly scheduled time. Read on to find out more details about when and where the show will be broadcast live tonight.

DATE: Monday, July 4, 2016

TIME: 8pm ET

DURATION: 3 hours

LIVE STREAM: Though there is no legal way to watch Monday Night Raw online without a cable subscription, those with cable can stream USA through the network’s website.

So what’s in store for tonight’s special Independence Day episode of Monday Night Raw? The show, broadcast live from Columbus, Ohio, is expected to be a big one, during which WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose will go up against The Miz. The WWE has also announced a 16-man Elimination Match consisting of Team USA vs. Team International, although the specific names of participants have not yet been revealed.

Plus, there will be another match between Rusev and Titus O’Neil, and a former SmackDown general manager is expected to appear ahead of the upcoming brand split.

And that’s just what has been officially announced. The WWE likely has some big surprises up its sleeve as well, and many are speculating that tonight fans may see the long-rumored return of Kurt Angle.

One performer you shouldn’t expect to see, though, is Roman Reigns, who is still on suspension until the end of the month after violating the company’s wellness policy.
