Reportedly, the backstage situation on SmackDown last night was said to have been “chaos.” In the daily F4W update, they noted that the WWE creative team was still rewriting the show as of Thursday night.
The rewrite is the main reason no games were announced before the Friday night show. Apparently the Otis segment caused the problems as it became the main concern and everything else was subsequently delayed.
It was reported over the last year (mostly from Money In The Bank) that Vince McMahon is a huge fan of Otis as a character and performer. Clearly, McMahon is putting a lot of emphasis on Otis’ screen presentation, which may have been to the detriment of this week’s show.
Triple H was also reportedly hired to help with the show last night. WWE was concerned that the show would move to FS1 on the night that the drop in ratings would be significant.

Randy Orton makes the transition to “The Fiend.” “The Fiend” then takes him to “Mania” so Edge and Randy get back together. “
Vince Russo speaks: “Now, Billi, why do you think that was on the side? Why do you think we went from that to “The Fiend” being off television for two months?
Bhatti: “He went sideways because the company took a different direction in the first place. So here in November an idea comes up for Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre and keep Edge and Orton for the Raw championship. This is what essentially happens here … Orton beats Drew for the championship. Immediately after, he enters a program with “The Fiend”. The idea was for ‘The Fiend’ to win this and then Drew and ‘The Fiend’ for Wrestlemania and Randy Orton waits for Edge. “
