The Authority

- It was an interesting atmosphere backstage at Raw last night in Pittsburgh. We’re told they were live on the USA Network before the script was finalized.

- Stephanie McMahon was upset that she did not gain a reaction from the crowd when she came out. Vince McMahon reportedly felt the crowd was too apathetic for his entrance as well.

- As we reported earlier in the day, Neville fractured his left ankle in his match with Chris Jericho. I heard he had multiple fractures but dot com reports he’ll undergo further evaluation before it’ll be determined whether or not he needs surgery. Jericho called for them to go-home but Charles Robinson blew the count so it ended in disqualification. Jericho pushed Robinson just to play the crowd. He’s still the best referee in WWE.

- Vince McMahon was irritated at Triple H for looking 100% after his brawl against Dean Ambrose on Saturday night. This is similar to what happened after the angle with Roman Reigns when Hunter showed up find at NXT TakeOver. Vince has been frustrated at not being able to get Reigns over and was even upset at Hunter for playing to the crowd a few weeks ago when he did the DX crotch chops. The ending of Wrestlemania 32 may have to be re-written in order to accommodate a Reigns heel turn.

- Shane McMahon could be sticking around for longer if Vince has his way. His return [for Wrestlemania 32] is a way for him to see if he missed being around and while it continues to be implied Shane will not hold an executive role, we all know the possibility looms.

- While Vince McMahon killed plans for an exclusive line of NXT figures to be sold on the WWE website, there will be several new NXT stars getting figures this year. Names include Samoa Joe, Baron Corbin, The Vaudevillains and Apollo Crews.
