Backstage RAW News: HHH’s Return, Batista Update, Errors

Matt Boone

WWE RAW–WWE ran the injury angle to open RAW last night with Batista as the storyline explanation for his upcoming hiatus from WWE television.

To bail them out of the situation, WWE chose to have Triple H return a little earlier than planned to keep things going heading into The Bash PPV.
Batista will be undergoing surgery on Tuesday, June 9th to repair the damage to the torn tendon in his biceps muscle.

–The word backstage at RAW was that newly crowned ECW champion Tommy Dreamer has signed a new three-to-five year contract with WWE.

–Lilian Garcia made a mistake in the opening match on the show, announcing Kofi Kingston as the Intercontinental champion, instead of the United States champion, which he is.

–You can almost bet the negative things said towards Vickie Guerrero were here WWE-friendly goodbye, as she gave her notice to the company yesterday.
