If Vince McMahon’s public reaction to Linda McMahon’s US Senate loss wasn’t telling enough, we’re told Vince is in a terrible mood. Vince has spent the morning calling up key staffers and giving them an earful in regards to the Survivor Series booking. Vince is still “very upset” about how the original main event for Survivor Series came across and having to change it on the fly at Monday’s television tapings.
We’re told not only is Vince in panic mode but prominent insiders say they haven’t seen him this frazzled in a long time. Vince is bitter that he is blowing the scheduled main event for WWE TLC and feels they are now backed into another corner with the December pay-per-view.
The chaos isn’t expected to end any time soon as the company will spend the next six weeks figuring out how to not bury Ryback, keep the WWE Championship on CM Punk and prevent John Cena from appearing weak after time off. Not only do these creative quandaries have to be handled with delicacy but there are still questions about the Wrestlemania status of The Undertaker and Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar’s future, what to do with Dolph Ziggler’s title shot and a dire need for someone to step up to lead Smackdown.
All and all to say Vince is “feeling the heat” would be a tremendous understatement.
