Shane McMahon showed up on Monday Night Raw last night saying he wants control of the show and a match was booked where he'll take on Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 to get it. Now, curiously enough, some strange signs have been showing up that something is afoot.

Such as:


That would be the first episode of Raw following the recently moved Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV).

To add to that, PW Insider notes there has been recent talk of WWE bringing back the brand extension the promotion used to split the roster after absorbing so much WCW and ECW talent back in the early 2000's. The idea at that time was to pit Raw and SmackDown against each other, though it never really worked out to create the kind of competition an outside promotion could.

What's interesting here is where NXT fits into the picture, if this is what the company ultimately decides to do.
