Tampa, which will host WrestleMania for the first time next year, is also part of another historic event, and this one occurs on Monday, July 22.
Raw Reunion will be the largest WWE reunion ever, and the Amalie Arena in Tampa is the venue chosen for such an endeavor. USA Network will broadcast the show beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

Slaughter.
In my audio interview with The Sarge, the WWE Hall of Famer discusses the WWE Raw Reunion special, The Undertaker, golf, football great Dan Marino, music talent Darius Rucker, politics and more.
Slaughter, 70, is a former AWA America’s Champion, NWA U.S. Champion, NWA Tag Team Champion, and WWE Champion. When his in-ring career ended, he worked behind the scenes as an agent and discovering talent, like Razor Ramon, Kevin Nash, X-Pac, and The Undertaker.
Slaughter loves playing golf, hosting his own charity golf tournament in the past at Doral Golf & Country Club, now Trump National in Miami. He, too, participated in camouflage in a Marino celebrity golf tournament for autism at Weston Hills Country Club in South Florida.
A real-life American hero, Slaughter served in the U.S. Marines as a drill instructor stationed in Paris Island, South Carolina.
The day after that special Raw event, WWE SmackDown Live will be live on the USA Network on Tuesday from the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.
