By now everyone knows that WWE is worried about the declining ratings of their television shows.
It’s no secret that Vince McMahon is very hands on with all WWE related programming when business is good, but when it's not, he steps it up a notch.
Vince McMahon is obviously tightening down on the creative team and overseeing all aspects of the company more than usual in order of trying to stop the decline in ratings.
This happens every year in the fall because the NFL is back and it hurts WWE's business.
Vince was in charge of all of the creative for Saturday night's MSG special and, as noted on last week's Wrestling Observer newsletter, the phrase "panic mode" has been used at WWE headquarters lately.
