Vince McMahon did not tear up script before SmackDown went on air – Reports
Contrary to previous reports, Vince McMahon did not tear the script for SmackDown before the show went on air last night in Minnesota.
McMahon has been in hot waters since the recent allegations that were made against him. Yesterday, Alex Sherman from CNBC reported that McMahon ripped apart the script for the blue brand after it was announced that he would be speaking to the WWE Universe.
However, new reports from Ringside News have now come out since the show aired, suggesting that McMahon was in a great mood backstage and that no script was torn up.
In light of the recent allegations made against him, the 76-year-old has decided to step back from his role as the CEO and Chairman of WWE. His daughter, Stephanie McMahon, will serve as the interim chairwoman.
Former WWE writer on Vince McMahon’s appearance on SmackDown
With the allegations surrounding McMahon well and truly in the spotlight, many were surprised to hear that he was booked to speak to the WWE Universe on SmackDown last night.
Fans were hotly anticipating what he was going to say. What transpired, however, was simply a 40-second speech, welcoming the fans to Friday Night SmackDown.
In response to the promo, former WWE writer Vince Russo tweeted that the company does not know how to format a television program.
“Man, nobody knows how to hold an audience like the @WWE. Guess you can change the channel now. Somebody PLEASE teach ANY ONE over there how to Format a Television Show. I’m beggin’ ya.” H/T Twitter
It remains to be seen if there are any major changes we’ll see in the WWE product now that McMahon is not in charge for the time being.
