• Backstage News On Weird Seth Rollins Segment On RAW
During an interview on Squawk in the Box this past Monday before RAW, Vince McMahon was asked if he’ll be involved in the WWE creative again after the sale. He said the following:
“Yes and no. On a higher level, yes.
In the weeds, no. Can’t do that.”
However, he was firmly back in charge of the creative on the RAW after WrestleMania 39.
According to PWInsider, late rewrites for the show were ordered 15-20 minutes before RAW started and the writers felt weird about this, as that is something that doesn’t happen under Triple H.
Changes were coming late into the show as well, and these were ordered directly by Vince, who had his own office backstage, the way he used to have before his retirement last year.
The show began with HHH being on the headset backstage. However, as the show progressed, Vince became more & more involved.
The feeling backstage is that Vince is going to take over everything again, and this hurt the morale among talent backstage.
One of the changes that were made on RAW was during Seth Rollins’ segment. He came to the ring, but the only thing he did was stand in the ring while the fans sang his theme song.
He was originally scheduled to cut a promo, but WWE’s productive team members told him about the last minute change during the commercial break.

Fightful Select reported that some WWE stars are already looking to leave due to Vince:
“Heard from at least two talent, including one near the top of the card that said they’ll likely request their releases if this is a trend moving forward, and another that said they’ll just ride out their deal.
There are multiple wrestlers who are already exploring what their options would be in the event Vince McMahon were to be steadily involved.”
