Two prominent superstars were significantly absent from this week's "WWE Raw" as WrestleMania 39 approaches: Both Carmella and Bobbly Lashley.
Lashley reportedly arrived at the "Raw" location in St. Louis, Missouri, but was reportedly kept backstage since his name didn't appear on the show's internal rundown.
Lashley was not allowed to appear on television this week for an undisclosed reason.
Monday night's match between Asuka and "Raw" Women's Champion Bianca Belair was originally supposed to be the continuation of the former "SmackDown" Women's Champion
Nevertheless, over the weekend, it was reportedly decided by WWE to substitute Piper Niven for Carmella in the same tag team contest.
Green asserted on-screen that Niven was sought after because Carmella was nowhere to be found.
Belair and Asuka eventually defeated Green and Niven, but like Lashley, it is still unknown why Carmella vanished.
