More on Vince McMahon Being Upset at RAW, Meeting Held with Writers and Agents

– As noted before, Vince McMahon was apparently upset at Monday’s RAW because Alberto Del Rio mentioned his name on TV. The mood at this week’s RAW was described by some as the most negative environment they could recall. Vince McMahon was said to be in the worst mood.

Word is that Vince felt Del Rio gave away the end result of the Kevin Nash and John Laurinaitis storyline by mentioning him. Some say that Vince was in a bad mood before Del Rio name dropped him. It’s said that Stephanie McMahon and Triple H both took more of the brunt from Vince this week than others, as did the agents, mainly Dean Malenko and Arn Anderson.

The writers had to do the usual script changes this week but sources say it was worse this week than most others.

Regarding the Mark Henry and Jerry Lawler angle, they went back and forth all day on whether or not to have Henry put Lawler trough the table. Shortly before RAW started, they made the decision to put him through it. The table was supposed to be gimmicked so it would break easier but because of the late decision, somehow the table wasn’t gimmicked and Lawler was put through it the hard way.

Both Henry and Lawler were upset about the angle but Vince himself was said to be furious about it. After RAW ended, Vince called the agents and writers in for a meeting. Sources say Vince went into a “full-on red faced promo” where everyone felt they were being warned.

    I guarantee the casual fan did not connect Vince’s name being mentioned to the “big reveal” of this storyline. And the rest of us already knew it was heading that route.

  • Alright, seriously, my post gets deleted for me being the game. Mod, get out of your basement, stop waving the banhammer, and go outside and do something productive once in a while

    HHH out.

  • Guys, this is Paul, also known as Triple H in the industry. I can confirm that Vince did had a baby tantrum backstage, and it took me and a couple others to try and sooth things out. Can’t wait to take over this industry and give the ol’man the finger.

    Vince has every right to get angry, you can’t expect to not get angry if some idiots ruin what he has worked so hard to build up. HHH is NOT COO MATERIAL. He should be out there wrestling like he use too and put John Cena to rest. We need new Champions, NEW CHALLENGERS! Cena becoming the champion over and over again is hella boring. The writers are getting sloppy, they need to know exactly where they want to take a story line and how to use the talent they have to do so. Cena and Punk partners? WTF! damn creative team what are you thinking! I HOPE MCMAHON STRAIGHTEN THEM OUT, but still try and get the company up to what it was with the attitude era and make more interesting story lines and maybe bring back some of the titles like the hardcore champ!

    I don’t blame Vince for being mad about the Henry/Lawler angle, because Lawler got really hurt.

  • venom

    This is why McMahon needs to step away. Getting this stressed out at his age is not good. The more we hear how about how mad McMahon is, the more we know he’s coming back. I think McMahon should have been more mad about the rumors of Nash coming back at NOTC.

  • Centerman

    That sounded like a Very Pleasant work environment there that night. How lovely… I’m sure Linda is busy outside somewhere being a far Right Wing Conservative but she needs to tend to poor old Vinny Mac. He needs to get laid more.

  • voice of reason

    blue4evered youve hit the nail square on the head i cant agree more

  • loopy420

    @kamoteng kahoy….. why would you ever say that??? havent we suffered enough loss in the wrestling comunity???? vince put his blood sweat and tears into the wwf/e for our enjoyment. Sure he makes a shit ton of money but he is the reason that u tune into watch the programs and the reason why we have companies like impact wrstling and even ROH. without vince i believe that pro wrestling would not be what it is today. you may bitch and complain about the programing and oh no vince had a hissy fit but fuck dude come on give ur head a shake u dont wish death upon someone because he yelled at his staff for screwing up. so in short GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!!! VKM FOR LIFE

  • kamoteng kahoy

    vince please just die

  • blue4everd

    I think Vince being furious about the table was legit. I mean really?!?!??! that makes the company look like shit! Vince had every right to scream at the agents and writers for that… for Delrio mentioning his name…Vince, if you didnt make it a big deal..then NO ONE WOULD HAVE FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!!

  • Chris E.

    He better chill the hell out. WWE has been the best it has been, ever. Better he stays off screen for good. NXT is garbage but RAW is nailing it every week. Del Rio’ mention of him was no big deal. It gave nothing away. It would have been awesome to see Laurinaitis in his prime face Punk

  • Jon

    Wow i feel bad enough for the writers and agents let alone his daughter and son in law. No wonder Shane quit. Vince just let it go. WWE need a new direction

  • Jimbo

    Really what’s he mad about? Not like the Little Jimmies know what’s going on, and it’s not like it’s going to affect their merchandise sales.

  • Bawb

    Vince red-faced? Ya know, I had a feeling he was the Devil. JP

    But seriously, he’s gotta be the scariest motherfucker in the business.

  • Jimbo

    Like anyone didn’t see Vince returning at some point in this angle.

  • D2K

    Agreed. These incidents are hardly cause for all this immature backlash from Vince. Someone needs to take him home, change his Depends, give him some prune juice, and put Matlock on.

  • Effmenow

    Vince, just leave.

  • kevin

    Yeah where are the sources???? Come on if it is that bad backstage there is no way these wrestlers would be so damn loyal too Vince.

  • CM Mark

    Awwwwwwwwwwww sh*t. This is the kind of dirt I like to hear about.

  • kirby4321

  • KitKrock

    LOL vince, U MAD BRO?
