Backstage news from this week's Monday Night Raw in Albany…
- While Daniel Bryan is known for keeping his mouth shut in most situations, we're told even he questioned the logic of him "running scared" of Kane on this week's Raw. The booking was greeted with an overwhelming degree of pessimism with one observer commenting, "if this is Hunter's way of slowly killing Bryan's momentum, it's working."
- Paige isn't the only one that has underwhelmed so far during her time on the main roster. The word from backstage at Raw was that Emma has been considered a disappointment and her gimmick worked better in NXT then it has on the main roster.
- Creative is searching for the "next step" for Big E. He's someone that has peaked and we're told a turn could be coming.
