Backstage RAW News: The Draft, JR’s Mistake, Big Show/ECW

Ryan Clark


The Big Show will appear on ECW this week. I’ve heard he’s going to be a main-stay there in the coming weeks but we’ll have to wait and see.

Jim Ross made a mistake at the beginning of RAW by calling the venue the Pepsi Arena instead of the Pepsi Center. The Pepsi Arena used to be in Albany, NY but they sold the name rights last year so it’s now called the Times Union Center. The Pepsi CENTER is where they were last night.

RAW was legitimately sold out this week with a hot crowd in Denver, CO. There were over 16,000 people in the Pepsi Center (That’s Pepsi…… CENTER, JR 🙂 ). It’s been years since they’ve ran an event in the state which is surprising to me.

Beth Phoenix vs. Melina in an ‘I Quit’ match has been added to this Sunday’s WWE One Night Stand PPV. Seriously.

As I just reported, the 2008 draft lottery will be in four weeks. The venue is the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

The Million Dollar RAW fan give-a-away was a last minute decision made prior to the show which is why the details weren’t released yet. They’ll obviously be working on how to do it later this week after the TV tapings are finished.
