– According to a backstage source, Monday night’s RAW was heavily rewritten at the last minute. The plan in the early afternoon was to have Triple H vs. Undertaker take place at SummerSlam with Taker vs. Cena taking place at WrestleMania 28. Obviously, that has changed. Some people believe that the long-term plan has always been to build WrestleMania 28 around The Rock, even if not in a wrestling capacity. Some also believe this is why Miami was chosen as the pay-per-view location.
– Vince McMahon was reportedly going crazy all weekend changing match orders and the like for WrestleMania. This happens all the time but this weekend he changed his mind on what seemed to be an hourly basis.
– Having Jim Ross call RAW Monday night was a last-minute decision. Ross noted earlier via Twitter that he wasn’t notified about calling RAW until nearly 6EST. This appears to be a one-time deal.
