We noted earlier on the site that WWE Hall of Famer Ron Simmons made an appearance on Monday’s Raw where he tried to advise MVP and Bobby Lashley.
On Tuesday, it was reported that there was an angle that was originally slated to be on Raw to revamp Simmons’ old stable, the Nation of Domination.
The reason Simmons was brought in this week was to be a part of that angle.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Mark Henry was also brought to the tapings, but not on the show to kickoff that angle.
While the angle was dropped for Monday’s episode, WWE might still be building to it later on. Additionally, Meltzer noted that WWE might’ve dropped the angle completely.
Meltzer was told that some people “thought from a real life timing situation that redoing the Nation right now would be incredibly tone deaf, so a lot did want it nixed.”
