Huge Backstage RAW News: JR Pissed, Drafts, Mysterio, More
06/23/2008 by Ryan Clark
I can confirm that Rey Mysterio was called over the weekend and told
he needed to be at RAW. Mysterio was in Mexico doing promotional work.
For those who missed RAW, Randy Orton, Shawn Michaels, and Ric Flair
Chris Jericho's entrance has been changed from 'Save Us' to 'Save Me'.
Prior to RAW, Cryme Tyme beat Deuce & Domino via pinfall in a dark
The crowd was very hot at the AT&T Center was sold out (15,183 total).
The announcers had no idea who was being drafted and it took them all
by surprise. That came straight from Vince for sure and was kept
secret from them all. By the way, that commentary at the beginning was
hilarious with Mike Adamle saying absolutely nothing as they were
shooting all over him. You could hear the announcers having trouble
keeping from laughing.
The Melina injury appears to be legit. We hope to have more later
tonight or tomorrow.
Batista was nearly knocked out when him and Edge collided head-to-
head. He was obviously busted open the hardway.
Jim Ross was legitimately not happy with his move to SD! as evident by
his *** expressions. Michael Cole was more shocked than anything
and seemed to feel bad for good ole' J.R. You could also tell Mick was
really taken off guard by it as well.
As noted on WrestleZone Radio last Tuesday, it was either Triple H or
John Cena going to SD!. Triple H must have agreed to the move because
Cena had been the original plan. It looks as if 'Taker is headed to
RAW with the ending tonight so that keeps the two off the same brand
to avoid issues. That explains why Cena wasn't drafted. More on this
on WrestleZone Radio tomorrow.
