From a press release:

Today, the WWE announced the return of “WWE Monday Night Raw” to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township on Monday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m.

The flagship wrestling show is part of the longest-running episodic television program on cable TV and will air live from 8 p.m.-11 p.m. on USA Network, once again showcasing fans from Luzerne County in front of the WWE Universe. 2.994 million viewers tuned in to “WWE Monday Night Raw” when it came to Wilkes-Barre in 2017.

This time, the event card will feature Royal Rumble Champion Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton and the Street Profits vs. Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy, plus special appearances by Shayna Baszler, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair. Many more are scheduled to appear at this event, though the lineup is subject to change.

Offering “the best value in entertainment,” tickets start at $20, plus fees, and go on sale next Friday, March 13 at 10 a.m. at the arena’s NBT Bank Box Office (255 Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-Barre), ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster outlets, and by phone at 800-745-3000.

WWE Ringsider packages are also available, which include a premium floor seat across for the cameras and exclusive WWE merchandise. Ringsider packages are limited and are available exclusively on ticketmaster.com.

“WWE Raw” visited the Mohegan Sun Arena in June of 2017 for the first time in eight years, though the WWE Live SummerSlam Heatwave Tour stopped here last year and “WWE SmackDown” was broadcasting live from Wilkes-Barre in 2018.
