Following this week’s episode of RAW, it was also reported that there was a lot of chaos backstage and this was due to Vince McMahon and Triple H’s last-minute shakeups.
Vince McMahon is one of the most influential people in the history of sports entertainment. But as we all know Vince had to step back from his position due to the life-threatening spinal cord injury and was on medical leave since. But now it is reported that Vince has resumed his work remotely.
Vince McMahon as we all know was involved in a sexual harassment case and thus had to step back as the Chairman of the company. But as soon as WWE announced their sale to Endeavour, a sports entertainment giant, the return of McMahon to the WWE was imminent. And Mr. McMahon did return to WWE taking back his control. But as Dave Meltzer’s report suggests, McMahon had to go through a life-threatening spinal cord surgery. As a result, McMahon once again had to take a leave or to be precise took a medical leave.
Now in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Vince McMahon made a significant change in the 11th September edition of the RAW. He also reported that McMahon wasn’t at the show, but made changes remotely. Dave Meltzer also reported that there was a lot of chaos backstage and this was due to Vince McMahon and Triple H’s last-minute shakeups.
Dave Meltzer said, “Vince McMahon is back. He made multiple changes to the show tonight. There were also multiple changes made by Levesque at the last minute. A lot of stuff wasn’t advertised on the show, like most of it, and the reason is they were changing all day long.”
Dave Meltzer also added that there was quite a tussle between Head of Creative Triple H and Vince over several matches. As a result, most of them were not pre-advertised. In the end, Meltzer also noted that the changes made by both of them were for the greater good of the show. He stated that though Vince McMahon and Triple H’s last-minute shakeups were chaotic but were fruitful for the end product.
Meltzer said, “But Vince McMahon is back, Vince made significant changes to the show… All I heard is they were probably changes for the better but there were many of them.”
It was reported earlier that the American Nightmare Cody Rhodes was set to open the show but he was then switched with Jey Uso. Jey Uso opened the show with a thunderous ovation from the WWE fans.
