Backstage RAW News on The Rock, Why Rey Was Absent, More

Posted by Matt Boone February 12, 2013 8 Comments

- WWE kept Rey Mysterio off last night’s RAW to sell the attack from Mark Henry last week. Rey tweeted during RAW:

“Missed being @ Raw tonight! WSM Did sum damage on me last week, but been through much worse and have come back! 619 luv”

– NXT stars Corey Graves and Conor O’Brian were backstage at last night’s RAW but not used in a dark match or anything.

– There was a backstage feeling at RAW last night that The Rock did not get the job done during his final promo going into the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. The pay-per-view is expected to do good business just because it’s the Rock vs. CM Punk rematch.

      Hurm… WWE seems to be thinking on the fly with the Shield vs Cena, Sheamus and Ryback. Could these guys be a backup plan?…Hurm…

      The Rock’s promos have been piss poor since he returned.
      Rey’s using an injury sell to cover up why he really wasn’t at RAW. He went back to Mexico to visit his cousin, Senorita Maria Juana, again.

        sadly, its true.
        and that Rock Concert was really awful, he just forced the lyrics and it totally sucked.

      so that’s why i saw an article title that says ppl are still pissed about The Rock.

      I for once think The Rock should do the same thing Jericho does when he returns and by that I mean putting over guys who deserve it.Plus bringing back heel Rock couldn’t hurt.The stuff with Punk is good but only for Punk and not everybody else.And those who say that The Rock is the best should remember that he is nothing but a hype machine.He’s not that great in the ring and every promo he does is about nothing.In a way he’s the same as Cena.And as for Punk even he is getting worse and more predictable.
