Backstage news from Monday Night Raw in St. Louis…
- Triple H stayed very close to Ric Flair backstage and in the ring on Monday night. As one observer put it, you just never know when Flair is going to flip the Flair switch.
- There was talk of adding The Usos vs. Ryback & Curtis Axel in a rematch for the WWE Tag Team Championship to the Extreme Rules lineup, time permitting.
- Vince McMahon wasn't thrilled with the go-home to Extreme Rules but he wasn't overly concerned with it either. The feeling I got in speaking with people is there isn't the "sense of urgency" there used to be with go-home episodes because the fact of the matter is, a large portion of people that were former pay-per-view buyers are already WWE Network subscribers.
- There isn't too much to report regarding a new domestic television deal. Many believe an update could come as soon as Thursday morning with Vince McMahon hosting an investor conference call.
