Neither Triple H or Vince McMahon were backstage at the WWE TLC pay-per-view, according to Dave Meltzer.
Meltzer noted that they conferenced in on the meeting before the show and everything was put together just as McMahon wanted. Meltzer noted that McMahon was not at the Gorilla position as he ususally is and it was Paul Heyman who was producing the announcers so if they sounded different to you then that is the reason why.
Meltzer noted that Heyman was in charge of the Raw matches and that included the main event. Bruce Prichard was in charge of the SmackDown matches.
Meltzer noted that the feeling is that the show as handled poorly by many people, specifically what happened with Kairi Sane since it was clear that a doctor should have the call early for her to be taken to the back instead of taking more dangerous bumps with a possible concussion.
Sane is currently not cleared to wrestle.
