PWInsider reports that RAW's original script was set to feature The Rock opening the show with a promo about losing the WWE Title to John Cena. This promo would have led to Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman confronting Rock and laying him out, planting the seeds for a future pay-per-view bout between the two, rumored to be WrestleMania 30.
With The Rock skipping out without notice, WWE had to re-write the show. A WWE source described the environment to PWInsider as "chaos backstage."
