— Conspicuous by their absence last night on Raw were the Bella Twins as they did not appear on the show for the first time in several weeks. The twin duo missed last night’s show in Minneapolis in order to help designers involved with the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition reality show tear a house down tonight in South Carolina. In addition to the Bellas, fellow WWE stars Big Show and R-Truth are tagging along as well. Hence, R-Truth will miss tonight’s SmackDown/ECW taping in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The family being spotlighted are big WWE fans, hence the sports entertainment company’s involvement with the program. When asked why he decided to be involved with Extreme Makeover, Big Show responded with the following: “A chance to make an influence, a positive influence, for a family like this is great. You have to be a cold hearted person not to have tears in your eyes. Truly amazing to give something like this to the family.”
