Vince McMahon “In Gorilla All Night” At WWE Raw
Vince McMahon was backstage at WWE Raw for the first time since he forced his way back onto WWE’s Board leading some to believe his involvement in the product is more than what is being let on.
With Raw taking place in Boston, MA, John Cena was on the show setting up his own huge WrestleMania match but it was the going on behind the scenes that made the headlines before the show.
Vince McMahon was backstage and while it was suggested that he was there simply to visit Cena, there could be more to it than that.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that while Triple H was still in charge, he believes McMahon is more involved than WWE is revealing:
“He was in Gorilla all night, so what does that tell you? He wasn’t barking orders at people or anything like that, but he was in Gorilla all night and I was told – they tell you he’s only there to visit John Cena, that’s the story, but there’s more to it than that.
“[…] He’s doing more than they’re letting on, but the person who was in control was Levesque (Triple H). It’s not like he was there in charge and doing stuff, but it’s not like he was just visiting John Cena and saying hi to a few people and then left. That didn’t happen either. The truth is a little bit in the middle.”
“Gorilla” is of course the production position immediately before the entrance backstage where the show is produced and is named after WWE Hall of Famer Gorilla Monsoon.
On Monday Night Raw, Jey Uso finally picked a side during the ongoing feud between The Bloodline and Sami Zayn.
