WWE Friday Night SmackDown was quite a show on television. There was also a lot going on behind the scenes, and Vince McMahon wasn’t happy about one particular match.
Ringside News has learned that Vince McMahon was changing SmackDown “throughout the show.” He was changing his mind in the middle of the broadcast which could be why things seemed a bit disjointed.
A member of the creative team with close knowledge of the situation told us Vince McMahon was “screaming on headset that he hated the Cesaro match.” McMahon also wanted to “go home” during the break.
Instead of ending the match during the commercial, Vince McMahon “ended up cutting four minutes” from the second segment of the match. We’re not sure what McMahon didn’t like about Cesaro vs Gran Metalik, but he hated something.
