Monday Night Raw took place from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia this week and the show celebrated its 30th anniversary. Originally WWE was advertising that Becky Lynch would face Bayley in a steel cage match during the show, but the match didn’t play out as many expect. Instead all three members of Damage CTRL attacked Becky Lynch and they celebrated on the cage as Adam Pearce checked on Lynch.
Fightful Select reports that originally the match and entrances were supposed to get two segments. However, the Tribal Court segment with The Bloodline went too long so several segments had to be trimmed.
The Bayley vs. Becky Lynch match was affected the most, and the options were to do an angle to set up a full match, or do a cage match that only lasted a minute or two. What they went with was the angle that we saw play out last night.
It was also confirmed that there were no injuries during the segment. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
