Here’s a quick note on Monday’s Raw angle with Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella. There were a group of fans sitting in the audience that were asked to move before the segment where Brie slapped Stephanie. A group of fans then filled the seats around Brie Bella for the segment.
Not long after the segment ended, according to one person who attended the show, the original fans that were there before the segment returned to their seats. It’s not uncommon for WWE to use planted fans for segments that take place in the crowd. They like to get good reactions for the camera and at times in the past when they didn’t use planted fans they’ve had the cameramen do the best they could to not shoot fans that were laughing or mocking a serious angle.
