This week's RAW reportedly re-written at last minute

It appears that the death of former U.S. president George H.W. Bush led to Vince McMahon making last-minute changes to this week's RAW script. Here is what Dave Meltzer of said about the situation:

“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.”
