What’s the story?

As reported by PWInsider, the man who decided to run the 7-man gauntlet match on WWE Monday Night Raw this week was none other than Vince McMahon.

In case you didn’t know

The match, which lasted nearly two hours, has been the talk of the pro wrestling world ever since it took place. The bout took up the majority of the show and showcased all seven men who will compete in the men’s Elimination Chamber match this Sunday.

Heart of the matter

The aforementioned report suggests that it was indeed Vince McMahon who approved the length and presentation of the match. Apparently, this surprised many higher-ups within the company, as Vince isn’t usually a big fan of these kinds of contests.

The match was seen as a breath of fresh air by many who felt as if WWE’s programming had become quite stale in recent times.

What’s next?

Moving forward, it’ll be interesting to see whether or not Vince continues to step outside of his comfort zone as we head into the final build for WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans.

Author’s take

This is a fascinating development and it’s one that we doubt many fans saw coming. This could be a great sign that Vince is starting to open up to new possibilities, meaning that we could start to see even more new ideas being tested out in the weeks and months to come.
