6/16 WWE Raw Pre-Show notes: Live coverage of the live WWE Network broadcast
By Jason Powell
The following is live notes of the WWE Raw pre-show that is being broadcast on the WWE Network. Refresh the page for the latest updates if you are reading this prior to Raw.
-Josh Mathews hosted a panel that featured Booker T, Alex Riley, and guest Paul Heyman.
-Booker noted that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon will address the roster on Raw.
-The panel discussed The Authority pulling the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Daniel Bryan. Heyman said they wanted it off of him and thanks to Kane's actions it became a self fulfilling prophecy. "What the Authority wants, the Authority gets," Heyman said. He pointed to Seth Rollins as an example of how the Authority always have something up their sleeve.
-Footage was shown of Nikki Bella beating Alicia Fox in a match taped for WWE Superstars.
-Renee Young interviewed Vickie Guerrero backstage. I was distracted momentarily by a storm, then made the fatal mistake of attempting to rewind a live show on WWE Network. Doing so took me something other than the live show, as usual.
-Seth Rollins vs. Dolph Ziggler was announced for Raw.
-Sheamus vs. Bray Wyatt was also announced for Raw. Mathews hyped it as their first ever meeting.
-Rob Van Dam beat Jack Swagger in another WWE Superstars match. Heyman was asked if he has a relationship with RVD these days. He cracked that it's strictly platonic.
