WWE Arrives In Russia, Backstage News On Lesnar & McGillicutty
– The RAW brand has arrived in Russia and are preparing for the first-ever show in Moscow tonight. As noted before, Triple H was added to tonight’s show.
– The return of Brock Lesnar to WWE has people wondering if it will help the career of Michael McGillicutty as Lesnar and McGillicutty’s father Curt Hennig were very close friends. As of last week there hadn’t been any discussion about pushing McGillicutty but it’s said that Lesnar’s clout can’t hurt McGillicutty’s standing with the company.
On a related note, McGillicutty worked his NXT match last night against Tyson Kidd with a case of food poisoning. The match received rave reviews from people backstage including “Road Dogg” BG James. Kidd vs. McGillicutty will air today on NXT.
