Late changes were made to WWE Raw this week.
According to reports from PWInsider. One of the most significant changes was to the NXT Women’s title match, which was originally planned to feature Tegan Nox taking on Becky Lynch. However, Nox was replaced by Natalya, as Lynch defended her title against the seasoned veteran.
Another change to the show was the inclusion of Dragon Lee, who made an appearance in an effort to raise the profile of the NXT brand across Raw and SmackDown. The aim was to bring more fans to tune in to NXT on Tuesdays, and Lee’s appearance was seen as a way to achieve this goal.
Ricochet vs. Shinsuke Nakamura was also affected by the late changes, as the match was originally scheduled to follow the Cody Rhodes vs. Dominik Mysterio bout. However, a decision was made to push the match back in order to give more star power to later segments, with Seth Rollins set to be involved.
