UPDATE: The car crash storyline mentioned in this article continued throughout Monday Night Raw, resulting in the surprising return of former NXT star Dexter Lumis. After the final match, police and arena security were seen taking Lumis away from ringside, indicating that he'd crashed the car and tried to storm the ring.
After a brief hiatus, Kevin Owens returned to action during this week's new episode of Monday Night Raw, injuring rival Ezekiel and sending him away on a stretcher before their match even started. WWE fans have been waiting to see Owens make his way back to WWE TV, but the Superstar's garage interview had everyone changing the subject away from his return. During Owens' interview, WWE Superstars Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H. could be seen in the background, seemingly involved in a car accident.
No crash occurs on-screen during the interview, but the aftermath shows a black car that had been driven directly into a structure in the parking lot. Both Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H. (a duo currently involved in the Women's Tag Team Championship tournament) could be seen inspecting the car with police and a few other people.
While no attention was drawn to the accident on the air, the WWE Universe immediately took to social media to talk about the event. Many wondered if others noticed, while some predicted it could be part of a bigger storyline with the Women's Tag division.

Check the background, who the heck crashed a car in the parking garage? I see Doudrop & Nikki A.S.H. There is also a cop or security guard among others looking over the situation as well. Hmmm 🤔 https://t.co/v9fTlEveuD— Tim Jarrell of PWUnlimited (@TimmyBuddy) August 9, 2022
