- WWE NXT Diva Lana is backstage at tonight’s RAW. She’s the valet for Alexander Rusev but was not used at the Royal Rumble last night. WWE creative has been going back and forth on whether or not Rusev will be on RAW tonight.
- Vince McMahon issued an edict this afternoon that the script for tonight’s RAW needed to be heavily tweaked due to the crowd reaction at last night’s pay-per-view. Writers were still working on changes about two hours ago. One source noted that Vince was not changing the script because of the negative reaction to Batista and the John Cena vs. Randy Orton match, but “in spite of it.”
The new script reportedly is a vast improvement from the original direction.
