WWE returns to New York City tonight with their combined RAW-SmackDown! event at Madison Square Garden. The long week ahead will start tonight and continue this week with both crews heading to Europe for this weeks tour, which will end with both brands taping in Birmingham, England next Monday and Tuesday.

Tonight's enthralling HHH-Jim Ross match is expected to me more of an angle with Batista than an actual match. There is no update on HHH's neck injury, but he is expected to be ready to go tonight. As recently announced, it's also thought that Hulk Hogan will be on RAW tonight to confirm his participation in the Backlash tag-team match featuring himself and Shawn Michaels against Muhammad Hassan and Khosrow Daivari.

The special guest on Jimmy Kimmel's ABC show tonight will be Steve Austin.
