Vince McMahon was backstage at last night’s RAW. According to PWInsider, Vince was only there because he lives close to the venue:
“Vince McMahon was backstage at RAW in Hartford, Connecticut. Given the proximity to Stamford, this shouldn’t be a shock. It’s the first RAW since the day after WrestleMania that McMahon has been personally in attendance for.”
According to BWE, Vince only made one little change to the show:
“Just pushed one segment from kick off and added a Seth opener.”
So the opening segment that you saw between World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and Judgment Day members Damian Priest and Finn Balor was a Vince McMahon idea, and wasn’t originally part of the script.
Fightful Select reported the following about Vince’s backstage visit:
“Hartford is a fairly short trip from where Vince McMahon lives, and most do not expect him to regularly be backstage, as he’s been fine making changes remotely in recent weeks.
For the June 5 show, however, Vince was in Gorilla Position himself, where he was WrestleMania weekend. As of late, McMahon has been calling in changes, sometimes very close to the show. This has caused late rundowns to be passed out and some segments and matches to be nixed.
We haven’t heard of anything out of the ordinary, and were told the mood was much less hectic at the Hartford RAW than the RAW after WrestleMania.”
Fightful also added that last night’s RAW in Hartford set a new record as it was the highest grossing RAW/SmackDown in the history of that market for WWE.
