PWInsider has passed along several interesting notes from this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. The show took place from The Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It turns out, Vince McMahon was backstage for the show and was in charge of all creative aspects of the program. Dean Ambrose’s backstage segment was pre-taped as he was not in Milwaukee with the rest of the Raw roster.
Braun Strowman’s segment was also pre-taped last week, and aired this week, as Strowman is legitimately in Birmingham, Alabama for surgery. Strowman has been dealing with bone spurs in his elbow that requires surgical repair. WWE personnel also raved about how easy it was to load into The Fiserv Forum and utilize the facility.
The woman who was involved in the Bayley and Sasha Banks segment, where she asked them how they’d change the women’s division, was planted into the crowd before the segment. And finally, Ring Of Honor star Silas Young was in attendance for the show. His ROH contract is reportedly up at the end of the year, and he’s rumored to be WWE bound.
