Report: Scrapped Plans For LWO Segment On WWE Raw Revealed
The LWO were set to be involved on WWE Raw
Further details on scrapped plans for the Raw after WrestleMania 39 have emerged.
Fightful Select reported ahead of Monday Night Raw on April 3 that Latino World Order integration was planned for the show but Santos Escobar and co. were ultimately absent from the Raw after WrestleMania 39. WRKD Wrestling later noted that Bad Bunny was scheduled to join Santos Escobar, Zelina Vega, Cruz del Toro, and Joaquin Wilde as the latest member of the LWO on Raw. The angle is still on the table as LWO shirts with the Puerto Rican flag have already been made.
"As @SeanRossSapp touched on this evening, a few #WWERaw segments were changed or scrapped. Our note from earlier about a 'special guest joining the LWO' was in reference to a planned Bad Bunny segment. This is still on the table, as Puerto Rico LWO shirts have been produced," WRKD Wrestling tweeted.
Bad Bunny was still involved on Raw, getting into a face-to-face confrontation with Dominik Mysterio that turned violent following Rey Mysterio's loss to Austin Theory. Bunny ended up being dragged over the barricade by Damian Priest after the rapper punched Dominik. Bunny ended the night in storyline in a hospital after Priest chokeslammed him through the announce table.
Backlash is set to take place in Puerto Rico on May 6 and a tag team match of Rey Mysterio & Bad Bunny vs. Dominik Mysterio & Damian Priest looks set to take place at the pay-per-view.
Other scrapped plans for Raw included Bayley being pulled from the show and a tournament to crown the number one contender for the Raw Women's Championship was nixed. Raw saw a wealth of last-minute changes even after the show went on the air due to Vince McMahon once again being in charge of WWE creative.
