Vince McMahon was backstage at the Smackdown tapings in Tulsa, Oklahoma when the Raw rating came in. I'm told it was "really bad" with Vince "blowing up on people" and "blaming everyone."

Vince reportedly threw out the entire script for Smackdown and had everyone basically avoiding him in fear he had reached the tipping point and would fire anyone who challenged him. We're told the backstage atmosphere was much more nuclear than it has been in years.

I asked who Vince was blaming for the disastrous number and was told he was upset about talent not getting over, the writers not booking properly, the producers not laying out matches correctly and "everything but CM Punk" at this point.
