After Monday Night Raw went off the air, Braun Strowman worked a dark match against Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns. During the match, Luke Harper suffered some sort of knee injury. However, the bigger news was the fact that Strowman was punched in the face by a fan. Security were quick to jump in and remove the fan from the arena. WWE has had several issues over the past years with fans attacking wrestlers.

In a rather interesting bit of news, Sami Zayn is actually scheduled to work a match at Wrestlemania 32.

There is said to be some major backstage heat towards Lana right now because she revealed to the world that she was engaged to Rusev in real life. When TMZ picked up on the story, which was easily done since she had posted the bit of news on social media, it forced WWE to abruptly change up the story line that they had going for the Bulgarian Brute and Summer Rae. Management hates when they have to do that.
