Tonight’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw will kick off the Superstar Shake-Up, and it’s probably safe to say that fans are in for some surprises tonight.

Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like we’ll be seeing United States Champion Samoa Joe tonight.

F4Wonline.com reports that Joe is backstage, but he is very sick. Original plans called for Samoa Joe to appear on Raw tonight, but his segment has reportedly been removed from the episode.

It’s also being reported that a combination of bad weather and flight cancelations in Newark, NJ are having an impact in regards to who will be making it to the show on time tonight.

Dean Ambrose is also backstage at Raw, as he’s still under contract with WWE for a few more weeks.
