For several days, WWE had been advertising Braun Strowman vs. Randy Orton for the April 19th 2021 edition of RAW but then advertising was removed on Monday prior to the show. On Monday night, Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com noted the following about the situation…
“We are told that when today’s production meeting began for Raw, the match had already been changed to Orton vs. Riddle without explanation and instead Braun was written into the Drew McIntyre storyline. So, it was a Vince McMahon call.”
Fightful.com reported that McMahon arrived “significantly late” for the creative meeting on Monday and then made changes to the show.
Orton ended up losing to Matt Riddle on RAW while Braun Strowman teamed up with Drew McIntyre against T-bar and Mace.
