WWE presented an interesting edition of RAW this week and it also included many last minute changes. Things were shuffled around at Vince McMahon’s direction, because the Chairman of the Board was not happy at all with what his team came up with.
According to a report from PW Insider, yesterday was one of the longest days for the WWE creative team in recent memory. This was contributed to how Vince McMahon was irate and “ripped up the script” several times throughout the day.
Vince McMahon, extremely unhappy with the original plans for Monday Night Raw, “ripped up the script” several times, including the original plans and then the initial rewrite.
Vince McMahon requested new ideas, some of which were good and others were not as impressive. He rejected “everything” pitched to him before making a decree that new plans needed to be written for the show. This sent the creative team scrambling to pen a new three-hour broadcast.
They were writing the script until 6:00 PM, two hours before showtime. All the while, “no official direction or plan for the episode” was cemented. It was reportedly the “loudest and angriest” some had ever seen McMahon on a show day.
