-The trivia question asked which wrestler made his WWE debut in Memphis in 1999. The answer is Big Show at St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

-After a video recapped TJ Perkins winning the WWE Cruiserweight Classic and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, the hosts interviewed Perkins via Skype. Perkins, who was backstage at Raw, held the title belt over his shoulder.

-Perkins said it was a dream come true to debut on Raw. Lita asked him to choose between Antonio Inoki or Negro Casas. He said Inoki would slap him if he didn’t choose him, then he picked Casas because lucha is in his blood.

-Lita asked Perkins to name the opponents he is looking forward to facing. He mentioned a rematch of the finals with Gran Metalik, and also mentioned Cedric Alexander and Noam Dar. Lita mentioned Jack Gallaher, Perkins also mentioned Akira Tozawa.

-The panel discussed the women’s championship picture. Lita said Sasha was announced as the winner of the Triple Threat last week, but it looked like her shoulders were also down.

-Backstage at Raw, Dana Brooke said Sasha and Bayley were both pinned. Brooke said it wasn’t fair, and now they have to be in a tag match. Brooke said they should go talk to Mick Foley. Charlotte said she made a good point. Charlotte said Brooke will follow her and listen as she talks with Foley. Brooke put her hand on Charlotte’s shoulder and said she’s happy she can help. Charlotte said it was a good idea and even a broken clock is right twice in a day.

Yes, really.

-Jerry Lawler checked in from Raw again and hyped that Roman Reigns will open the show. Lawler said Mick Foley is not his usual jovial self. Chris Jericho showed up and complained about Stanford being terrible at his job. Jericho said Foley’s power has gone straight to his head.
