Backstage news and notes from WWE Raw in Biloxi, Mississippi…
– Vince McMahon remains unhappy with the way the Stephanie McMahon and Triple H characters are coming across on television. One observer blamed it on the week-by-week writing of the angle and the constant changes to the final script. This same observer noted how Hunter and Stephanie look almost as confused as the viewers that are trying to following the angle.
– Randy Orton is working through some type of upper leg injury and is reportedly getting it evaluated again this week.
– We heard more criticism for Goldust wearing the face paint again this week on Raw. The feeling from many I spoke with was the story would have been told better without it.
– To give you an idea of how quickly the Battleground lineup has been thrown together, the first Raw script had Kofi Kingston and R-Truth flip-flopped. In the end, Truth ended up playing the role originally written for Kofi.
