Powell’s POV: Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair will appear in the corner of their respective teams. The WWE website is showing all three members of New Day, The OC, and Lucha House Party in the graphic for the match. One can only assume that Kofi Kingston will team with Big E due to the Xavier Woods injury. Join me for live coverage of the event as the show streams on WWE Network on Thursday at noon CT/1ET.
