WWE announced a new docu-series starting on the 16th of February. The series will cover the Ruthless Aggression era.
Starting on Sunday the 16th of February, WWE will upload next episodes every Monday, starting on the 17th.
On the WWE website, the company said the following of the series:
WWE Ruthless Aggression picks up where WWE Network’s critically acclaimed Monday Night War docuseries left off, detailing the prolific, if turbulent, years that followed the Attitude Era, after WWE won the battle for Monday night supremacy and absorbed its top rival, WCW.
Famous for giving rise to legendary WWE Superstars like John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton and Batista, the Ruthless Aggression Era was also a time of remarkable innovation for WWE. The company introduced new concepts like the Elimination Chamber Match and Money in the Bank Ladder Match, and, for the first time in its history, split the roster into two unique brands: Raw and SmackDown.
WWE Ruthless Aggression will feature brand-new interviews with Cena, Batista, Orton, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Mark Henry, Becky Lynch, Kevin Owens, The Miz, Paul Heyman, Bruce Prichard and many more, giving WWE fans firsthand accounts of events that transpired in front of, and behind, the camera. Each episode is also packed with rare and never-before-seen footage, providing unprecedented access to the Ruthless Aggression Era.

Dave Meltzer noted in the most recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Baszler was main roster bound, and was destined for RAW, although Dave gave no specifics regarding a time frame.
PWInsider has gone one step further, claiming that Shayna will be on this Monday’s episode of RAW, and that Monday signifies her start date with the red brand.
Baszler vs. Becky has been spoken about for some time now, it is assumed that the two will enter into a programme together straight away.
