WWE Moving Towards More Unscripted Promos; Shane McMahon's Whereabouts


— Shane McMahon was not Smackdown last week as he was called upon for jury duty.

— Sasha Banks, Bayley and Rey Mysterio’s promos last week on Raw were all done without being scripted word-for-word, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. There has been a “movement” to have more unscripted interviews in WWE, specifically to give the talent “bullet points” and then letting them work off of that. Kevin Owens is another superstar who is given significant leeway in his promos and Daniel Bryan is another one who is rumoured to be given the same flexibility.
