Backstage WWE News, Notes & Rumors From Last Night’s Monday Night Raw

— Last night’s WWE Raw was an eventful one with the return of former world champion Seth Rollins, the unveiling of the new Wyatt Family group that had been hinted at for weeks as well as a Drew McIntyre quitting storyline and we also saw  wrestlers moving forward in the Money in the Bank ladder match for next month. Below are some backstage news and notes from the show, as per fightfulselect.com:

  • In the internal rundown sheets that were distributed backstage, Seth Rollins was not listed on any of them; instead the segment in which he appeared was simply listed as belonging to Damian Priest, obviously to keep news of his return from leaking online.
  • WrestleVotes reported yesterday that WWE is hoping that CM Punk will be fully cleared to return to the ring by SummerSlam and this report is corroborated by Fightful.
  • Damian Priest received significant praise for his performance at the recently completed WWE Clash at the Castle event in Scotland. Drew McIntyre has also received repeated and consistent accolades for the way he continues to work through all the personal issues that have cropped up over the past several weeks and months, including his wife ending up in the hospital.
  • Speaking of McIntyre, for anyone who had doubts about him “quitting” and deleting all of his social media accounts, it is obviously only for storyline purposes as McIntyre recently signed a new contract with WWE and isn’t going anywhere.
  • A match between Karrion Kross and Xavier Woods was pulled from Raw for unknown reasons, however, the two are scheduled to wrestle next week.
  • WWE officials were said to be very pleased with the Bron Breakker-Ludwig Kaiser camera and they had planned for it throughout the day.
