B-Fab Recalls Her Experience As Part Of WWE Raw Underground

B-Fab relives the short-lived Raw Underground concept.

The global pandemic allowed for the opportunity to innovate and as such, WWE and other promotions took an opportunity to try new ideas that may help the growth of the industry moving forward out of the pandemic.

One of those attempts at a new creation was the Raw Underground concept that briefly existed during the third hour of Monday Night Raw in the summer of 2020. Hosted by Shane McMahon, Raw Underground took a Fight Club kind of approach to Monday Night Raw and briefly featured names like Commander Azeez, Omos, and others while NXT recruits surrounded the fight area.

One of those surrounding names was B-Fab.

In a fluid situation such as the creation of row and around, ideas are always shopped around and in a new virtual Q&A with K&S WrestleFest, Briana Brandy talked about her brief time as part of Raw Underground and being picked as a potential co-host for Shane McMahon right away.
“I got to do a co-hosting moment for that. It was only on TV for like a month or whatever. I literally got picked right on the spot. I was just there to be part of the audience who bangs on the ring on the side and there in the crowd. Shane comes up to me and goes, 'Hey, how comfortable are you on the mic?' 'Super comfortable.' 'Okay, cool, I might need a co-host for this. Be ready.' I wasn't expecting this to happen. Maybe in a couple of weeks, they would tell me to do it or whatever. Five minutes later he comes back and is like, 'you ready?' 'Right now?' 'Yup. Let's go. Think of some questions to ask Braun Strowman, interview style, and let me know what you got.' It was right on the spot. It was so amazing and so fun. It happened that week and then the next week they ended up shutting it down. It was a lot of fun being there. Everyone was going so hard. I thought people were going to get hurt, like the wrong way hurt, because they were going so hard. There were no ropes, they were just doing brawl style. It was really intense.”

Ultimately, that didn't happen but she would be a part of Hit Row on NXT less than a year later. Brandy would be released by WWE in November 2021 end now, she looks forward to the future which may or may not include a Hit Row reunion in another promotion. Learn more here.
