• WWE Dropped Plans To Use A Hall Of Famer On RAW This Week
As we noted earlier, WWE had been planning to create a Nation Of Domination 2.0 using MVP, Shelton Benjamin, Bobby Lashley and Ron Simmons, but they didn’t go ahead with the plan.
It seems like the plan has been dropped, or WWE is just waiting for the right time to pull the trigger on it.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry was also at RAW tapings to be a part of the segment, but the company didn’t use him.
“There was an idea for the show to reform the Nation of Domination. Both Ron Simmons (who did appear on the show in a quick cameo for no reason) and Mark Henry (who was not on the show) were brought in to kickoff that angle.
We don’t know if they are going to do that or if it was dropped. We do know people who 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.”
