To be more specific, Aleister Black suffering his first RAW loss to AJ Styles was decided on that afternoon along with Erick Rowan’s tarantula reveal. It is not really known exactly why Vince decided to switch things up at this time.
The last major change Vince made involved Riddick Moss. He was originally booked to go over clean on R-Truth but Vince changed it to Ricochet last minute.
Other notes from RAW include Lana being absent for the next few weeks as she films a movie. They have also kept Bobby Lashley off TV for this same reason.
