– The Brock Lesnar return segment as well as the Bobby Lashley vs. Seth Rollins match that followed was produced by Adam Pearce. PWinsider.com reports that while Pearce has been off TV since the Ronda Rousey segment several weeks ago, he has been working extensively backstage as one of the lead producers on both Raw and Smackdown. Lesnar was secretly flown into New York City the day before Raw but wasn’t hidden backstage in the same way that has been in the past, so his return was known by a lot of people backstage.
– Michael Hayes has been working on the Roman Reigns vs. Logan Paul storyline though as is always the case with his wrestlers, Paul Heyman continues to have significant input into this feud, offering his insight and voice particularly as it relates to Reigns. Meanwhile, Drew Gulak and Shane Helms have been working with Logan in the ring ahead of the match between the two at Crown Jewel next month.
