Recently released WWE Superstar B-Fab has recalled her very brief stint as co-host on the infamous Raw Underground segments fronted by Shane McMahon.
B-Fab was previously a part of Hit Row alongside Ashante ‘Thee’ Adonis, Top Dolla, and Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott, making their name as a foursome on NXT. Following the WWE Draft in October the group were all drafted to SmackDown but their time on the blue brand was cut drastically short.
B-Fab was the first member of the group given their release from the company on November 4th, with the other three members of the group part of the next round of roster cuts just eleven days later.
Speaking on a virtual signing for K&S WrestleFest the former WWE star recalled her brief presenting gig for the company that came about at the last minute as Shane McMahon looked for a co-host for Raw Underground:
“I don’t know if anybody saw, but I got to do a co-hosting moment for that for a second. It was only on TV for like a month or whatever, but I got to do a co-hosting moment for Raw Underground. I literally got picked right on the spot.”
“I was just there to be part of the audience who bangs on the ring on the side and was there for the crowd. Shane comes up to me and he goes, ‘hey, how comfortable are you on the mic?’ I said, ‘super comfortable, very comfortable.’ He was like, ‘okay, cool, I might need a co-host for this, so just be ready.’”
“I wasn’t expecting this to happen, like maybe in a couple of weeks they’ll tell me to do this or whatever. Five minutes later, he comes back and goes, ‘are you ready?’ I was like, ‘right now?’ He’s like, ‘yeah,’ and I’m like, ‘yeah for sure, let’s go’ He’s like, ‘think of some questions to ask Braun Strowman. Like an interview-style, and let me know what you’ve got.’ It was just right on the spot and it was so amazing and so fun.”
Raw Underground was a short-lived segment that debuted on the 3rd of August 2020 during the third hour of WWE’s flagship show. Fronted by Shane McMahon, the show featured shoot-style fights and introduced the WWE Universe to the likes of Omos and Commander Azeez.
Despite generating a lot of buzz online as to where the feature might lead, it was soon scrapped with the last edition of Raw Underground taking place towards the end of September 2020.
B-Fab added that she enjoyed being a part of Raw Underground despite her presenter role being brief, and adds that she was surprised that nobody was badly hurt:
“It happened that week and then the next week, they ended up shutting it down. But it was a lot of fun being there. Everyone was going so hard, people were sweaty, it was insane. I thought people were going to get hurt, like the bad hurt. Hurt in the wrong way hurt.”
