– Vince McMahon was in charge as usual of last night’s WWE Evolution pay-per-view from the gorilla position, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet. The event felt more like an NXT Takeover show than a traditional WWE pay-per-view, which caused some people to speculate that Triple H was in charge. According to the report, Vince was giving notes and making changes with Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Road Dogg and the other producers.
