McMahon’s influence over WWE television is as strong today as it ever has been, if not the strongest ever. There is almost nothing that takes place on WWE television without McMahon’s approval, which may or may not be the best situation. McMahon has a reputation for changing the shows at the last minute, which was made even more complicated this week.
According to Fightful Select, McMahon was “significantly” late to this week’s Monday Night Raw. When he arrived, he made a number of changes to the show, including removing the previously announced Braun Strowman vs. Randy Orton match. The only features advertised for the show included Drew McIntyre wanting answers from Mace and T-Bar and Charlotte vs. Asuka. It is not clear why McMahon was late and there is no reason to believe that anything is wrong.
The show wound up being ok. Check out how things went:
