During the DX segment on Raw 30, when Triple H made the remark about "If only" there was someone other than him to make decisions. Philly began to boo, perhaps thinking he was making a Vince McMahon tease.  Of course, it was a set up for Teddy Long to appear.

There was no post-taping dark segment.  Austin Theory vs. Seth Rollins in a Street Fight had been advertised but that wasn't going to happen after Brock Lesnar wrecked Bobby Lashley and Theory.

The announced attendance tonight for the Wells Fargo Arena was 16,975, which was a sellout.

For those of you who have asked, Hulk Hogan's microphone kept going out in the building during his promo.  It was not being censored on the broadcast.

Live in Philly during commercials, a number of WWE legends were introduced to the crowd including DDP, Jimmy Hart, Alundra Blayze/Madusa, Ted DiBiase, Irwin R Shyster, and The APA.  They came out and waved and acknowledged the fans.

The Bellas who were advertised last week, were not there.  We are working to confirm where they were as they did travel to the Northeast for the taping.

Bayley spent a lot of time arguing with fans as she was climbing the steel cage during a Raw commercial break.

Alicia Taylor from WWE NXT worked as the Raw ring announcer tonight.  

The legendary Ringside Charlie Adorno, who was in the front row of the first Raw back in January 1993, was in attendance tonight.  He was also at the 10th and 25th anniversary Raw events.

During a commercial break, WWE aired a commercial for next month's A&E programming featuring Steve Austin.  A number of other promotional WWE videos aired during breaks.

WWN official Trevin Adams was at the taping.

Jerry Lawler wore the exact same outfit he wore back in 1993 during his Monday Night Raw debut.

Prior to Raw going on the air, WWE taped the following matches for this Thursday's WWE Main Event on Hulu:

*Akira Tozawa vs. Bronson Reed.

*Dana Brooke vs. Nikki Cross.
