WWE had some major issues before SmackDown today, and that is why they didn’t have anything announced for the show until about 15 minutes before they went live on FOX.
Dave Meltzer noted that it was a mess backstage before the show, because it was being re-written as of a few hours ago. This is actually not an uncommon trend as Ringside News has reported numerous times in the past.
Vince McMahon didn’t arrive at the arena until 12:30 PM today. Another source reportedly said that nobody knew about the plans until Vince McMahon arrived.
Ringside News can confirm this report as accurate. We will have more in an extensive report later on. Essentially, they didn’t know what they were going to do, and they all waited Vince McMahon’s arrival; because they knew that everything was going to change when he showed up.
We had an exclusive today about Vince McMahon’s schedule. We suggest you read it to get an idea about how McMahon showing up at 12:30 PM threw everything out of whack.
