Eric Bischoff was backstage at RAW last night but was not used on the live show. He did appear after camera’s stopped rolling to announce a bonus tag team match for the Atlanta crowd only.

Jake Roberts also appeared after RAW went off the air during the tag bonus match. We’re told he put the snake around Ric Flair which caused him to head to the back and then draped his snake over Triple H after the match concluded. He’ll be on WrestleZone Radio tonight from 0-11EST. Check back to this site around 8:30EST for the live link listen to the show.

This will give you a little insight as to why Desire left TNA. From Steve Gerwick’s Hotline.

– “I wasn’t treated with equal respect,” said Desire, real name Kim Neilsen when asked about TNA. “They couldn’t figure out how to use my talents and gifts there,” she said.”The environment at TNA, is not very pleasant. I just didn’t feel I belonged there,” claimed Nielsen. “Good and honest people don’t belong in the wrestling business.” Her last appearance for TNA was in September 2004 at the final show in Nashville. She was told she would be used against when the company relocated to Orlando. “They tell you what you want to hear,” stated Nielsen. When she called TNA management, she was told that they didn’t have anything for her and didn’t know how to use her. “If they couldn’t find a place for me, I came to the conclusion that they’re idiots that can’t write a good storyline,” said Nielsen. On TNA management. Dutch Mantel, “he’s horrible.” .. Jeff Jarrett, “a complete idiot.” Desire feels she broke her back for the company (she suffered a serious back injury in June 2003), and said Jarrett had talked to hear twice in the entire time she was in the company, each time uttering just a single word. When asked why she felt TNA never incorporated a women’s division, Nielsen said, “It’s a boys club there.” Three weeks after the move to Orlando, Nielsen called TNA. She talked to Mantel, who told her they couldn’t really find anything for her. Desire said it was Vince Russo that told her that the writers are less intelligent than she is, and that they are holding her fate in their hands.
