This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was one of the rare occasions when the Boss Vince McMahon was not running the show from the Gorilla position and he was not backstage for the episode either.
According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Vince was not in the arena for this week’s episode of the Red Branded Show, though the reason for his absence is not known.
In the absence of the Chairman of the board, the new Executive Director Paul Heyman, Triple H, and Kevin Dunn took the command and these three reportedly ran the show from backstage:
According to sources, Vince McMahon is not at today's Raw in Minnesota for some reason. I'm told Triple H, Paul Heyman and Kevin Dunn are running the show.
Apparently Heyman sat at the main table with Levesque and Dunn during the production meeting, which isn't the norm.

It’s worth mentioning here that reports suggested that WWE will be making NXT’s move to TV official during this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw but the announcement never came.
Now this report about Mr McMahon has started many rumors and it would be interesting to know if the company postponed the announcement due to Vince’s absence.
