New details regarding Vince McMahon and backstage 'chaos'
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 08/07/2020 at 08:48 AM

Regarding the backstage “chaos” at the WWE television tapings earlier this week, Dave Meltzer of noted that Vince McMahon approved the idea to have his son Shane return along with an angle for Randy Orton and Ric Flair. However, a RAW episode had reportedly been written without Vince approving any other concepts.

Meltzer mentioned that a meeting prior to the July 30th investment call was described as "brutal" due to Vince not approving any ideas. Meltzer added that there was another meeting the next day that apparently lasted four hours. During the meeting, McMahon had apparently praised Bayley’s new persona and mentioned Peyton Royce and Bianca Belair as having potential to be singles stars.

It was previously noted that WWE only taped one episode of Smackdown on Tuesday instead of two episodes. According to Meltzer, "this was due to Vince blowing up the scripted show and the loss of some people at the last minute expected to appear on the show."
