Backstage RAW Notes: Kenny’s Name, Russian, Carlito

Ryan Clark


The big Russian (Vladimir Kozlov) who cut a promo on RAW was Oleg Prudius. He defeated Scotty 2 Hotty in a Dark Match before the Armageddon PPV Sunday night in Richmond, VA. He was the guy TNA traitor Jerry Jarrett brought to WWE which was posted on WWE.com several months ago.

Carlito was busted open the hard way after bumping into the cameraman at RAW during his match with Chris Masters. He needed stitches backstage but was not taken to a hospital and won’t miss much time, if any.

The Sylvester ‘Rocky’ Stallone interview was pre-taped earlier in the day.

Kenny is in line for a pretty good push and will go by the name Kenny Dykestra. Yah, you can all see the joke there coming from a ‘male cheerleader’ gimmick. His real name is actually Ken Doane.
