Monday night’s episode of Raw featured some familiar names for the past for the Raw reunion episode, but several changes had to be made to the show.
Rikishi appeared on the show, and Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that original plans called for Rikishi to hit The Revival and D-Von Dudley with the stinkface, but he wasn’t cleared.
There’s no word yet on why the doctors wouldn’t clear Rikishi.
It’s also being reported that Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco weren’t able to do anything really physical, which is why the WWE 24/7 Title change from Patterson to Brisco was filmed with Patterson already being down after the pin.
Brisco then quickly dropped the title to Kelly Kelly.
