Last week’s episode of SmackDown was reportedly thrown into chaos as Vince McMahon apparently re-wrote the entire show without the knowledge of other staff members.
Dave Meltzer reported this on this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
“The day of the 11/13 Smackdown show was stressful because on Thursday night or Friday morning, Vince McMahon completely rewrote the show so that none of the writers nor the producers knew anything that was going to happen until McMahon came in with the finished product.”
Apparently this is not an isolated incident. A staff member at WWE relayed that re-writing of the show is an ongoing occurrence and has been for quite some time.
