Its not often that two sports collide but a slightly controversial move by the WWE has seemingly been blocked by an NFL franchise.
This Monday on RAW is being dubbed as the series premiere of the show and the WWE looks set to have some big plans for the show.
However one of their schemes, was to invite Michael Sam to the show, as the first openly gay NFL player, Sam has had a lot of publicity.
The WWE were possibly hoping to cash in on some of this media hype for the show by extending to him an open invitation to the show.
Since Sam was cut by the St Louis Rams, many people were expecting him to find a new team and now, he has done.
He has since been picked up and assigned to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad making Sam's appearance at RAW look all the more unlikely.
Now it appears that his football commitments will interfere with any appearance on the WWE Network and it is unclear if that is a good thing.
The WWE has brought celebrities in on regular occasions and those personalities have featured prominently on the live shows and their website.
Sam has certainly featured on wwe.com as a message of congratulations was posted shortly after the news of the Defensive-End's deal to join the Cowboys.
A big night coming up
This coming Monday night on RAW, the WWE are going all out to give the fans a show to remember and why not.
They have already released some information about the show that will feature a cage match between Chris Jericho and Bray Wyatt and a celebrity appearance from Jerry Springer to try and solve the Bella Twins issues.
But why are the WWE going all out for this episode of RAW? Well there are several schools of thought on that but there is one reason in particular that many people believe to be true.
This Monday will be the first Monday Night Football of the new NFL season and there are in fact two games lined up.
The New York Giants take on the Detroit Lions before the San Diego Chargers take on the Arizona Cardinals - both matches will be played at different times during RAW.
So the WWE has some fierce competition for the first time in months and with just under a month until the WWE Network is rolled out in the UK and two weeks until Night of Champions, they will need to convince their fans not to stray to other sports.
