As expected, the Hardy-Lita-Edge love triangle was the hot topic of discussion backstage at RAW last night. Although talk on the situation had been quiet at weekend house shows, it was open season yesterday with talent from SmackDown! on their cell phones to the RAW guys to try and get updates.
Matt Hardy wasn’t backstage at the show last night, per WWE’s request, who felt it would be best given Lita and Edge were both booked for on-screen appearances.
With Hardy not at the show, management held meetings with Edge and Lita to discuss recent events and how the situation could be defused given that WrestleMania is around the corner.
As for backstage reaction – Edge nor Lita were shunned by their peers, however there was some ackwardness that accompanied both wherever they went backstage, which was to be expected. As for Matt Hardy, many in the locker room feel sympathetic toward him as he is a popular figure and thought of as a kind boyfriend.
