• RAW Wrestler Changes Her Look At Last Night’s RAW Taping
As we noted before, WWE taped the December 31st edition of RAW last night in Detroit, Michigan.
The Riott Squad competed in a 6 woman tag team match and it should be noted that the leader of the Riott Squad, Ruby Riott, changed her look by cutting her hair short.
