– As noted, last night’s WWE RAW opened with Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon promising a “fresh start” for both RAW and SmackDown. The McMahon family admitted they haven’t listened to fans and have “suffocated” the Superstars, but now they plan to give the fans what they want. That same segment saw them bury Baron Corbin and officially do away with his General Manager powers.
Above is video from a segment that took place when RAW first went to commercial, featuring Corbin explain his job performance to the McMahon family. Triple H ended up telling the crowd to tell Corbin what they thought of him, which brought more boos. The entire segment was filled with boos.
