It was described as a “crazy” day backstage at WWE Monday Night Raw as the show underwent various changes.
WWE announced that Bobby Lashley would face Sheamus on Monday’s Raw, but that didn’t happen. Instead, RKO Bro defended the Raw Tag Team Championship against Lashley and MVP instead of the planned Sheamus vs. Lashley match.
Also, Damian Priest was scheduled to defend the United States Championship against Drew McIntyre, but that was changed to Priest defending in a Triple Threat Match against Sheamus and McIntyre. John Morrison vs. The Miz was pulled from the broadcast.
PWinsider.com reported today that Vince McMahon was said to be extremely unhappy with what was originally planned for the show and so much so that he “ripped up the script” several times.
The WWE Chairman asked for new ideas and there were some that were good while others not good. He rejected all of them before he made the decision on what the new plans would be for the show.
One person stated that it was “the loudest and angriest” they had ever seen McMahon on the day of the show.
