There are rumors floating around right now that Konnan was backstage when Monday Night Raw was filmed in San Diego this week. The root of the speculation is due to the fact that the former United States Heavyweight Champion was spotted hanging out with a couple of the wrestlers afterwards. There is a chance that he did not attend the show since he has major backstage heat within WWE for comments that he has made about the promotion.
