WWE News: WWE's Reaction To #HiJackRAW, Undertaker Not Backstage, More
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.04.2014
How did WWE book for the crowd?
- The Undertaker was not at RAW, even though he was advertised.
- Divas Champion AJ Lee was backstage at RAW, but obviously didn't appear on television. NXT stars Aiden English and CJ Parker were also backstage.
- Security was on "high alert" during last night's RAW. While the #HijackRAW movement didn't affect much of the broadcast, arena staff checked people for weapons when the entered the building and looked for "offensive" signs. There are currently no reports of fans being forced to leave because of their signs.
- As seen last night, the booking of the show was done with awareness of the vocal crowd who were not going to get CM Punk. Paul Heyman's "pipe bomb", The Usos' tag title win, Dolph Ziggler winning and Daniel Bryan standing up to the Authority and getting physical with Triple H were all WWE playing to the Chicago crowd to help the fact that Punk wasn't going to be there.
