Vince McMahon Was In Gorilla Position During Last Night’s Monday Night RAW

Vince McMahon was in gorilla position for the duration of this week’s Monday Night RAW.

Before RAW even got on the air, fans were alerted to Vince McMahon’s physical presence at this week’s show. While many expected the show to falter with McMahon present, it turned out to be a well liked edition of the red brand for a lot of fans.

Fightful Select have provided an update on McMahon being at RAW, stating he was in gorilla position during the show.

Throughout the afternoon, there were rumblings among talent that Vince McMahon would be at the show. As of about 6:00 PM ET, many of the talent and staff hadn’t seen McMahon, but did see a room being prepared for someone to work out of. That ended up being an office for McMahon. PWInsider reported shortly after 6:30 ET that Vince McMahon was backstage at Raw. Most of the staff and talent in attendance were not surprised by this, as Hartford is a fairly short trip from where Vince McMahon lives, and most do not expect him to regularly be backstage, as he’s been fine making changes remotely in recent weeks. For the June 5 show, however, Vince was in Gorilla Position himself, where he was WrestleMania weekend. Of late, McMahon has been calling in changes, sometimes very close to the show. This has caused late rundowns to be passed out and some segments and matches to be nixed. We haven’t heard of anything out of the ordinary, and were told the mood was much less hectic at the Hartford Raw than the Raw After Mania. Aside from that, internal reports indicated that the Raw in Hartford was the highest grossing Raw/Smackdown in the history of the market for WWE.

We will have to wait and see if Vince will be appearing at TV more now or if this was just a matter of convenience.
