Backstage News on Vince McMahon Changing WWE RAW Plans

The original plan for Monday’s RAW was to do the Matt Hardy vs. Randy Orton No Holds Barred match as advertised, and it was supposed to run across multiple segments, according to Fightful.

However, Vince McMahon made the decision to scrap the match altogether and just go with Orton attacking Hardy in the neck brace.

Furthermore, it was reported by that some people in the company felt like a Hardy vs. Orton match would make the attack from the previous week seem meaningless since it was similar to Orton’s recent attack on WWE Hall of Famer Edge, and he’s been off TV because of it for a few weeks now.

As we’ve noted, the original Orton – Hardy attack segment did so well in the ratings that WWE nixed the plan for that to be Matt’s farewell segment. That’s when the decision was made to bring Matt back for this week’s segment.

Vince is said to be adamant that this week’s beatdown on Matt will be his final WWE TV appearance as his contract expires on March 1, unless he decides to sign a new deal.
