Report: Vince McMahon Rewriting Entire SmackDown Show, Eric Bischoff Yet To Pitch Creative Ideas

Tonight’s SmackDown Live is currently undergoing a full rewrite, with only hours left before it airs.

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Vince McMahon was not satisfied the script for tonight’s show, and has decided to rewrite the whole episode. Something similar happened last week, when McMahon called in the creative team to rewrite the show prior to it beginning.

According to Bryan Alvarez of The Wrestling Observer, at one point Kofi Kingston vs. Daniel Bryan was scheduled to be the main event for tonight’s SmackDown, but that may have been scrapped during the rewrite.

McMahon recently appointed Eric Bischoff Executive Director of SmackDown, and since he has started his new role, he has yet to suggest or pitch any creative ideas that have made it TV. His creative influence currently non-existent, as he is familiarizing himself with the product.

Tonight’s SmackDown is the go-home show for SummerSlam and airs at 8pm ET on USA Network.
