Backstage News On Who Produced 2021 Royal Rumble Matches

— As noted before, Vince McMahon was not present at Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV due to a “personal matter” believed to be related to the death of his brother, but he watched the event on the WWE Network, reports McMahon was said to be in “constant conversation” with the officials in charge, including Triple H, and was “directing traffic” as expected via phone. With that said, despite not being there physically, he was very much involved in the final product.

— Below are the individuals who were responsible for producing each of the matches at Royal Rumble:

  • Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens – Michael Hayes
  • Drew McIntyre vs. Goldberg – Chris “Abyss” Park
  • Sasha Banks vs. Carmella – TJ Wilson
  • Men’s Royal Rumble Match – Shane McMahon, Jason Jordan, Jamie Noble and others
  • Women’s Royal Rumble Match – Adam Pearce, TJ Wilson, Pat Buck and others

— WWE’s title change to give Peter Rosenberg the 24/7 belt was done as a way to give WWE exposure on The Michael Kay Show which aired on ESPN NY 98.7 as well as the YES Network. If you missed it, Rosenberg was on the show with the title, but R-Truth also snuck on and ended up recapturing the title.
