WWE had a successful episode of Monday Night Raw this week. Vince McMahon still changed things around in a big way.
Fightful Select reports that this week’s episode of WWE Raw was actually going to be much different. The first draft of the show had a much different segment for Randy Orton and Matt Hardy.
It was noted that the plan going into the show was a multi-segment match between Orton and Hardy. A no-holds barred match had been advertised for days prior to Monday. Then Vince McMahon changed the plan to what ended up happening.
The two had a match announced last week, which was changed the day of Raw. Going into Monday the plan had been a multi-segment match between the two before Vince McMahon called for a change.
It wasn’t noted why Vince McMahon made this big change to the Raw script. Matt Hardy ended up having his character absolutely murdered instead of actually wrestling any kind of a match.
