As previously noted, several major executives are not backstage tonight at WWE Monday Night Raw. Vince McMahon, Bruce Prichard, Kevin Dunn, Michael Hayes, and Adam Pearce are all said not to be backstage but in the case of Prichard, he hasn't been backstage at several shows as of late.
Ringside News reports that Prichard has missed "multiple shows lately and no one knows why." Ed Koskey is reportedly filling in for Prichard while he is away and the mood among the writing team reportedly doesn't have "that Bruce Prichard vibe" right now.
It's not clear if changes will be made to the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, scheduled for Saturday night in Atlanta. But if some of the recent talent absences are due to COVID-19 tests, we may not find out about changes to the card until later in the week.
Several top names were off Sunday's house show in Madison Square Garden and Roman Reigns was not at the show in Tampa. In some cases, there are positive cases but in other instances, the company is taking precautions so it's not clear (other than Seth Rollins) who is dealing with the effects of COVID-19.
WWE is advertising the following for Raw:
- The Miz and Maryse will renew their wedding vows
- The Street Profits vs. The Mysterios in a number 1 contenders match
