WWE fans were excited to get a glimpse of the future last night. Monday Night Raw was the first episode since the retirement of Vince McMahon. Many had high hopes for very different kind of show.

In the end, there was not too much different from the Raw episodes we’ve been seeing for years. That’s because most of the show still had Vince McMahon’s fingerprints all over it. Not much changed since the show was written last week.

On today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted those who are looking for big change shouldn’t use last night’s Raw as a barometer. The show was already approved by Vince McMahon last week. There were no major last-minute changes to the format.

“This is probably not the show to judge anything by, because this show was largely written before Vince left. It was written a lot on Thursday. Nobody ripped up anything. There are a few minor changes is what I was told.


But, essentially, this was the show that had been approved. So, they’re not making any big changes or anything like that just yet and of course, they’re going to SummerSlam with the ideas in mind.”

There is no doubt that some level of change is coming to WWE. With Triple H in charge of creative, fans will eventually see more of his vision in the product. For now, the company is in a transition period, and it will take some time to see new ideas rolled out.
