WWE: Vince McMahon made late changes to Battleground match

Football News

WWE's seventh pay-per-view of the year took place on Sunday night and it seems that not for the first time this year, Vince McMahon decided to change one of the endings of the matches at the last minute.

The original plan was for Bray Wyatt to pin Chris Jericho this weekend and their feud then to continue into Summerslam and finally at Night of Champions when Chris will go back onto hiatus.

The plan was then changed Sunday morning by Vince McMahon himself and Chris Jericho was given the win off after a Codebreaker in what was described as a solid match from the pair.

Break with routine

It is not yet known why Vince changed the outcome but the usual method of a WWE feud entails the face picking up a win then the heel coming back to take the second match victory before deciding a definitive winner in the third and final match.

So expect Bray and Chris to clash again at Summerslam and Bray to pick up the win by any means necessary, but talking of Chris, he was not actually on Raw last night.

Y2J on other business

We all saw him backstage being taken out by the entire Wyatt family, but it seems Y2J was actually in Los Angeles yesterday promoting Fozzy's new album which was released today. The backstage segment that saw Chris beaten and Sister Abigail'd into a locker before it cut and returned to him later when he was being treated by medical staff and R-Truth and Zack Ryder because his ear seemed to be bleeding pretty badly, that was all filmed at Battleground.

Bray did deliver a promo and show the attack during it which fitted in pretty well with the rivalry and many fans didn't even realise that he wasn't there. Jericho will be back and live on Monday Night Raw next week.

Cena on location

Another familiar face that wasn't in Miami last night was WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. It seems WWE's champion wasn't there because he was needed on set of his latest movie "Trainwreck."

Many rumours circulated about how WWE would take Cena out and make sure he wasn't playing a part on Monday night Raw, instead they played it cool and didn't even mention the champions' absence. Instead they named his challenger for Summerslam in four weeks time and that man is Brock Lesnar.
