This Week's RAW Was Completely Re-Written By Vince McMahon at The Last Minute

This Week's RAW Was Completely Re-Written By Vince McMahon at The Last Minute
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that plans for Raw needed to be changed this week at the last minute once again. This time it was because Vince McMahon showed up late and arrived with a different philosophy in mind considering the current climate after President George H. W. Bush’s passing.

“Like last week, this weeks’ Raw was completely re-written by Vince at the last minute. He didn’t even show up until 3:30 because he was visiting with his mom. So he got there at 3:30 central time so the show would start at 7:00 pm central time. So he got there three and a half hours before the show and he shows up and basic gist of everything is that his feeling was that, ‘We’re in Houston Texas, President Bush just died and people are gonna be in a somber mood so we’re gonna have to make them happy.'”

“So that’s why Finn Balor did what he did […] he got to win his match. Ronda Rousey stood tall at the end of the show. He made whole-scale changes from what the original script was for more happiness.”

“I was just told that babyfaces did much better because Vince felt they had to do it that night and just felt you know, he had to give the people a show they would go home happy on because he just expected that those people were going through a tough time with Bush passing away.”

Meltzer said he didn’t know if Dolph Ziggler defeating Drew McIntyre was one of the plans that changed, but it would fall in line with “more happiness” to a certain extent.

As noted, this week's RAW draws lowest viewership of 2018 and the lowest in show history.
