Vince McMahon re-wrote significant portions of this week's episode of WWE Monday Night RAW, including the built-up unveiling of the contents of Erick Rowan's "mystery cage."
Some of the segments and matches that were re-written included Aleister Black's first loss to AJ Styles, Ricochet's loss and the Erick Rowan tarantula reveal.
All of these were re-written by the WWE Chairman on the day of the show.
While not much else is known regarding the reasons why Vince changed things up, or what was initially scripted, although it's worth noting that the original plan for Riddick Moss was to face R-Truth until Vince changed it to Ricochet and booked a clean win.
