Backstage Notes on Vince McMahon from the WWE NXT Live Event During WrestleMania Weekend
– We noted before that Vince McMahon attended last Friday’s WWE NXT live event in San Jose, his first NXT show, and really seemed to be enjoying the show. Vince reportedly loved the crowd reaction but people who were nearby noted that he wasn’t thrilled with the “better than RAW” chants and appeared very unhappy at the “better than Mania” chants that happened later in the show.
There was some speculation that the NXT live event ran long due to Vince giving the okay. WWE wanted to be out of the venue before midnight due to union costs but the show ran until 1am. Vince did make the call to give them an extra hour, covering the costs himself.
