Vince McMahon extremely unhappy with the original plans for Monday Night Raw, “ripped up the script” several times, including the original plans and then the initial rewrite.
WWE Chairman had requested his new ideas, some of which were good and others were not as effective as per him. He rejected “everything” that was pitched to him before making a decree that new plans needed to be written for the show. This sent the creative team pushing hard for a new three-hour broadcast.
They were writing the script until 6:00 PM, two hours before showtime. All the while, “no official direction or plan for the episode” was decided. It was reportedly the “loudest and angriest” some had ever seen McMahon on a show day.
