Vince McMahon booked Monday Night Raw, not Triple H

Many fans of the WWE have moaned about the product in recent years, especially since the show went to a PG-TV rating.

Whilst the in-ring action has remained entertaining, the storylines and the overall booking of their shows have come under fire on numerous occasions.

With last week's brand split, there appears to be a new dawn within in the company. Both Raw and SmackDown Live have their own dedicated writers, but Vince McMahon supposedly still has the final say on all creative decisions.

Depending on who you talk to, Vince is either a genius, or an old man out of touch with the business. The passionate WWE fanbase has had to become more vocal in recent years to ensure their favourites like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan got the headlining shots they felt they deserved.

The chairman's insistence on pushing Roman Reigns has frustrated large sections of fans who do not want to accept the Samoan Bad Ass as their top babyface. It's not so much that there is something wrong with Reigns, it's just the manner in which Vince has forced the former Shield man down the public's throats.

So when Sasha Banks won the Women's title on Raw this past week and Finn Balor - on his Raw debut - defeated Reigns to book his place in a bout with Seth Rollins at Summerslam for the newly-made WWE Universal title, eyebrows were raised.

It was suspected that Triple H had been influential on the booking like he is in NXT, where both competitors have arrived from.

According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, it was not Triple H but rather Vince McMahon who was in charge of the show.

People forget all too often: McMahon has orchestrated some of the greatest moments in wrestling history, if not the vast majority of them. Monday's episode of Raw is proof that the 70-year-old McMahon has still got it.
