BACKSTAGE NOTES FROM RAW IN ATLANTA, GA

By Mike Johnson on 2019-02-25 15:42:00

Bruce Prichard is backstage for his first official day back with WWE Creative.

Backstage for the Ric Flair 70th Anniversary celebration is WWE Hall of Famer Sting, who was one of Flair's greatest rivals in Jim Crockett Promotions and WCW.  Shawn Michaels is backstage at Raw.  He made allusions to a layover to Raw en route back from the NXT UK tapings on social media and we've confirmed he's at Raw.   Ricky Steamboat is also backstage.  I would expect some other names to appear as well.

The reason The Rock was in Atlanta over the weekend is that is where the Jumanji sequel is filming, so he is local to Raw.  We are told Dave Bautista is also currently filming a project in Atlanta, so he is local as well.  Neither are currently backstage, however.

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are also backstage, which pretty much guarantees an angle on Raw.  Am I wrong to guess Flair's birthday cake gets ruined?

Dana Warrior is backstage at Raw.

Paul Heyman is also backstage.  He has been involved in the Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey storylines.
