It’s not surprising we’re getting a WWE Network special which looks behind the scenes at the emotional start of Raw last Monday (Feb. 25), when Roman Reigns returned to announce his leukemia is in remission and he’s back on the roster. But it is a little surprising it’ll be debuting just a week after it happened.
Rumor was the company was filming a documentary on Ric Flair in Atlanta last week. And maybe they were doing that, too, but that’s not what premieres this upcoming Monday (Mar. 4) after Raw:
This will be the sixth Chronicle on the streaming service, following editions focused on Shinsuke Nakamura, Samoa Joe, Dean Ambrose, Becky Lynch and Paige. Some have been quick turns like this Reigns episode; others cover longer periods of time or have come out well after the incident they, well, chronicle.
WWE’s clearly capitalizing on the attention Roman’s comeback got last week and striking while the iron is hot. And between Raw, Chronicle and an already announced match at Fastlane on Mar. 10, they’re not wasting any time letting us know the yard once again belongs to the Big Dog.
