Several last minute WWE Raw script changes affected the following aspects of the show last night:
–Roman Reigns was initially scheduled to face Rusev on Raw, however a last minute decision was made to put Reigns in a Handicap Match instead. This is the reason why there were two Handicap bouts in the first hour of Raw.
-WWE was initially planning a Bo Dallas vs Great Khali rematch from Raw last week, but that was also changed last minute to Khali vs Rusev. As we reported earlier today, speculation is that many of WWE’s Rusev plans were changed when Lana’s Battleground promo garnered a lot of negative mainstream press.
-Nikki Bella’s wardrobe malfunction was edited out of the Raw replays from last night and on DVR.
