Last night's rumoured "chaotic" stable debut on WWE RAW turned out to be a more low-key affair than the pre-show reports led us to believe, but a mysterious group still found ways to hijack the broadcast.
Their first interferences went down during RAW's opening. Lights cut out and flickered as Tom Phillips tried to introduce the show, with microphones switching on and off later on. The problems continued throughout the evening, with the group causing further disruption by toppling a box of equipment backstage, then, in their grandest act, throwing petrol bombs at an electrical box towards the end of RAW.
WWE posted the following gif during the broadcast:-
There's currently no official word on who was behind these acts, though NXT's Dominik Dijakovic has sparked speculation by switching to all-black avatars on his social media accounts and deleting all past posts. We'll likely hear more from the group next week.
WWE themselves had confirmed a new faction's debut prior to RAW hitting the airwaves. This group appears to comprise of five people at the moment and while this wasn't a full-on "debut," reports suggest that the stable's actions will continue as they try to attract the WWE hierarchy's attention.
