WWE Raw TV notes from January 27th in Cleveland, Ohio…
- Neither CM Punk nor Kane appeared on this week’s Monday Night Raw as advertised. It’s likely they were just given the night off or a victim to multiple show re-writes, which I’ll have more on later.
- Seth Rollins took a spill over the crowd barrier upon The Shield’s entrance through the crowd.
- The referee in the Divas match on this week’s show was Dee Edwards. He’s known on the northeast independent pro wrestling scene in the United States.
- Cameras for Total Divas have been filming Summer Rae for about two months for her inclusion on Season 2 of the reality series, which premieres this March.
- To follow-up on John Cena being banged up on the spear spot with Roman Reigns, he rolled to the outside and the referee called for the doctor. Cena waved off the attention (which was audible to people sitting ringside) and he was able to tag back in and take the match home.
- After this week’s show went off the air Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns left Seth Rollins with the babyfaces. Rollins ended up taking all of the babyface finishers to send the crowd home happy. There was no dark match main event.
