As you are probably aware, one of the main feuds that WWE is running with at the moment is The New Day taking on The Wyatt Family (who were faces for a cup of coffee, but are now apparently heels once more).
On the July 4th edition of Raw, the Wyatts invited the tag champs to their compound, ostensibly for a match or angle that will take place at this Monday's Raw.
TNA recently ran angle/vignette on their last episode of Impact! Wrestling which put the company's name out there in a way not seen in some many years. It was called the Final Deletion: ostensibly presented as the blow-off to 'Broken' Matt Hardy and his brother Jeff's feud.

The sequence took place at Matt's compound where a wrestling ring and 'battlefield' had been set up to settle the issue between the real-life siblings.
For those who haven't seen it, it's well worth tracking down, whether you love or hate what you see it deserves to be viewed. Lawnmowers, drones, fireworks and boats all feature in the sequence that is presented as a movie a la Lucha Underground. With a constant musical score by TNA head writer Billy Corgan (of Smashing Pumpkins fame), and lots of quick cuts, both the Hardys and TNA deserve a lot of credit for producing something so innovative and unique.
The question is, are WWE about to produce their own version of the Final Deletion on this week's Raw? Several notable names from the company have tweeted out their appreciation of the angle, with Chris Jericho being the most notable in his praise of the angle and Matt Hardy's insane character.
WWE are not above using things from TNA now, nor in previous years. Witness the influx of TNA talents that NXT has seen over the past year, and WWE's use of a voiceover to recap Raw following TNA's lead and you see that the big company has no issue taking the reins from the smaller company to attempt to show them how it's done.
Are we about to see Big E and Kofi Kingston shooting fireworks at the Wyatt Family? What abstract artwork does Bray have laying around in his back yard? Can Braun Strowman play the violin?
All of these questions, and more, will be answered on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw.
