Major happenings backstage...
UPDATED: PWInsider is also reporting the same story as the Wrestling
Observer -- that the Rock is not at RAW tonight and WWE is trying to
re-write major portions of the show.
They report that The Rock left for Los Angeles this morning, catching
WWE completely off guard. There is major heat on him for leaving. This
is not part of an angle, as Rock had been worked into WWE's future
plans and was scheduled to be part of a major angle tonight to setup a
program with Brock Lesnar or the Undertaker (more likely Lesnar) for
WrestleMania 30. All those plans have now been thrown out.
ORIGINAL: According to wrestlingobserver.com, there is panic backstage
at Raw right now. The show was scheduled to build to a segment where
Brock Lesnar beat up Rock to set up next year's WrestleMania main
event. The problem: Rock is not there and has reportedly gone home.
Vince McMahon, the writers and producers are in the process of redoing
the show, evidently believing the angle has been nixed. Nobody knows
any details as to what happened past that. As of this time, the belief
is that Rock is not appearing.
Also, there is a second major angle tonight to set up the main feud
going forward and the Extreme Rules main event involving John Cena's
next title defense. Word is that it is one of the things that has been
planned for some time and was actually scheduled before Mania.
More details as they come
