WWE RAW reportedly had MANY backstage changes ahead of the show

Last updated

WWE RAW, a flagship programme for the wrestling giant, has always been known for its dynamic nature. Historically, changes to the show’s lineup, even during its broadcast, were not uncommon, especially when Vince McMahon actively oversaw the daily operations.

This week, however, saw a flurry of changes, marking a departure from recent stability. Interestingly, there’s no word on Vince McMahon resuming his earlier hands-on role.

Sean Ross Sapp, a reliable source from Fightful, highlighted that WWE RAW underwent multiple alterations this week. Such changes can be disheartening for fans, particularly those eager to see their favourite Superstars in action. Unfortunately, some of these wrestlers didn’t make the final cut for this week’s episode.

The WWE RAW and Main Event schedules were reportedly modified “several times over.” This kind of reshuffling indicates a possible strategic shift or perhaps unforeseen challenges in the production process.

WWE RAW: Match Rescheduling and Segment Changes

In a notable change, the Viking Raiders vs. Shelton Benjamin & Cedric match got relocated to the Main Event.

Additionally, the bout between Natalya and Zoey Stark was excluded from the Main Event tapings altogether.

Furthermore, the opening segment of WWE RAW experienced a significant change. While Cody Rhodes was initially slated to kick off the episode, Jey Uso took the spotlight by appearing first.

Such last-minute changes can be a result of various factors, from creative decisions to unforeseen circumstances.
