By Mike Johnson on 2020-03-03 10:29:00

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley was in Brooklyn, NY last night as he was filming material for the company for what was described to PWInsider.com as a community outreach program.

NXT star Vanessa Bourne was backstage at the show beyond the other NXT stars we reported yesterday - Matt Riddle, Mansoor and Bianca Belair.

There was a meeting with talent before the show regarding the coronavirus to go over the latest available information on the disease outbreak and what talents can do to protect themselves on the road.

Rusev was backstage at the show but not used on camera.

Charlotte Flair was not at Raw.

Bobby Lashley was backstage but Lana was not.  The word making the rounds was that she had booked a film role and was shooting.

A number of students from Pat Buck and Kevin Matthews' WrestlePro promotion were used as extras on the taping.  Steve "Monsta" Mack, a longtime NYC veteran and former ROH talent, was seen during the No Way Jose-Rowan segment backstage.

Rowan's giant spider puppet is an animatronic robot.
