The WWE Network will be honoring Bruno Sammartino on Monday night.

WWE announced today that a documentary on Sammartino would be airing on the Network immediately after Raw on Monday. The company noted that the special will include some of Sammartino's "greatest matches, moments, and more," but no other details have been revealed.

Sammartino passed away at 82 years old on Wednesday morning after having been hospitalized for the last two months. WWE paid tribute to their longest-reigning champion in history later that day with a 10-bell salute at their house show in South Africa and with a graphic at the beginning of that night's episode of NXT. Raw will be WWE's first live programming to air since Sammartino's death.

Monday's Raw will feature the final build to the Greatest Royal Rumble and Brock Lesnar returning to television to hype up his Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns in Saudi Arabia. It will be Lesnar's first appearance since retaining the title at WrestleMania 34.
