During a recent Twitch stream, former WWE Superstars Mansoor and Mace affirmed that Vince McMahon made heavy changes to the episode of WWE RAW after WrestleMania 39.
McMahon was reported to be “heavily involved” in the RAW after WrestleMania show, which came on the back of WWE announcing its sale to Endeavor Group earlier that day.
McMahon had changed several matches, segments, and the order of the RAW episode.
Mansoor said, “RAW after Mania. Card is up, show is rehearsed. Hunter has been running the show for a while. Mania was a huge success. We weren’t on it because we were told we were being taken off TV right before. We’re sitting backstage and in catering with Omos. He’s got some disgusting slop on his plate. He gets a call, answers the phone, gets up and runs out. We’re looking at him, we’re with Tyson Kidd [TJ Wilson]. Ten minutes later we’re like, ‘did [Omos] just leave his pile of food here?’”
He continued, “It was a call saying, ‘Omos, you’re booked for RAW in an hour, you need to go get your gear.’ He didn’t bring his gear because he wasn’t supposed to work the show. He had to run back to his hotel and get his gear from when he worked Mania. Vince came through and just changed the whole show an hour before. Suddenly, the first match after WrestleMania was Omos squashing Elias, for no reason.”

Vince McMahon Makes Last-Minute Changes to WWE RAW After WrestleMania 39
In the world of professional wrestling, Vince McMahon is known for his hands-on approach and his ability to make last-minute changes to WWE shows. Recently, former WWE Superstars Mansoor and Mace revealed that McMahon made significant alterations to the episode of WWE RAW following WrestleMania 39.
According to Mansoor, McMahon was heavily involved in the RAW after WrestleMania show, which coincided with the announcement of WWE’s sale to Endeavor Group. This added an extra layer of significance to the event, and McMahon wanted to ensure that it lived up to expectations.
Mansoor explained that the card for the show had already been finalized, and the wrestlers had rehearsed their matches. Triple H, also known as Hunter, had been running the show for a while and had overseen the success of WrestleMania. However, just before the RAW episode, Mansoor and Mace were informed that they would not be appearing on TV that night.
As Mansoor and Mace sat backstage with Omos, they noticed him receiving a phone call. Omos quickly left his food behind and rushed out of catering. Confused, Mansoor and Mace wondered why Omos had abandoned his meal. It turned out that Omos had received a call informing him that he was booked for RAW in just an hour and needed to retrieve his gear from his hotel room.
This sudden change in plans was due to McMahon’s decision to alter the entire show just an hour before it was set to air. As a result, Omos ended up squashing Elias in the first match after WrestleMania, seemingly without any reason or buildup.
McMahon’s ability to make such drastic changes on short notice is not uncommon in the wrestling industry. He is known for his hands-on approach and his desire to create the best possible product for the fans. While these changes may cause confusion and frustration among the wrestlers, they also add an element of unpredictability to the shows.
