Off-Air Raw Report: JR’s Speech, Gail Kim, Dark Match & More

Nick Paglino

Thanks to Jason Gear for sending in the following:

Just got back to Tulsa from Raw in OKC and here are some off-air notes:

The preshow dark match saw Vladimir Kozlov beat a jobber from Austin.

Jim Ross came out to the ring during a commercial break.  He said he was in Cheech and Chong’s dressing room and was feeling hungry. Said he was in the mood for some BBQ!  He thanked everyone for their thoughts and prayers and said he would hopefully see everyone at Wrestlemania.

Gail Kim was helped to the back by a referee after the pillow fight.  Looked like she hurt her ankle after being thrown out of the ring.

After Raw went off the air Sheamus threw HHH back into the ring and started beating him down. Batista came out and said he was doing good for a rookie but for a guy like HHH you need to do more than beat him down, you need to take him out. Cena then came out and challenged them to a tag match. Eventually, Batista left and left Sheamus to get the Attitude Adjustment then the Pedigree.

Biggest Pops:

Cena
JR

Orton

Biggest heat:

Batista
Michael Cole (he came out to the Texas fight song)
