Vince McMahon Backstage News (8/7/2019)

Dave Meltzer of reports that last night's WWE Smackdown Live underwent yet another late change thanks to Vince McMahon deciding to re-write the episode.

The original main event was scheduled to be Kofi Kingston vs. Daniel Bryan, but McMahon reportedly "tore up the show" hours before it was to air and instead changed it to the tag team match with Bryan teaming up with Rowan to take on Big E & Kingston.

McMahon supposedly did the same thing last week, but to an even greater extent, by ditching the script minutes before Smackdown aired and he was apparently still writing the second hour of the show as the first was airing live.
