Here are a few backstage news items from the June 5th 2023 edition of WWE RAW via Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com…
* Johnson wrote that “a number of talents relayed how much fun they had working in front of the Hartford, CT crowd last night and pointed out Hartford is not a city like Montreal or NYC that normally has the reputation for being ‘on fire’ as they were singing songs and loudly chanting.”
* While he was backstage at RAW on May 29th, Tommaso Ciampa was not at this week’s event. Drew McIntyre was also not backstage at RAW. Ciampa is rumored to be reuniting with Johnny Gargano and a video package for Gargano did air during RAW.
* WWE was reportedly happy with Kayden Carter and Katana Chance’s work during their RAW debut match against Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler. Carter and Chance lost but they did get in a lot of offensive against the tag team champions.
