PWInsider is reporting that two big names are not currently backstage at Raw in Detroit, MI. WWE has been saying that Rousey would be on every Raw leading up to WrestleMania, she has not been seen backstage today.
Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are not currently backstage, despite the fact that he was advertised to appear on tonight’s show. This could be WWE's plan to play into some of the criticism being posted on social media by fans. The thought is that the storyline will help put over Reigns as a babyface to his detractors.
Dave Meltzer posted a report last week that Lesnar’s “no show” on Raw two weeks ago was something decided at the last minute, because they wanted to capitalize on the photo posted on Dana White’s twitter account. They needed all the help to get Reigns over as a babyface that shows up every week for the fans. There are a few people in WWE who believe Lesnar is leaving soon, so he can fight in again in UFC.
