It’s being reported that Vince McMahon did not appear on Raw last night due to time constraints. He was initially set to make a live appearance on the show, most likely to address his "Stand Up For WWE" initiative, but the decision was made instead to air the promo video as there wasn’t enough time for Vince to appear live.
The decision was made to have Ezekiel Jackson fill the final Team Raw spot as a result of Mark Henry’s current personal situation with his brother. As we reported last week, Henry’s brother suffered a stroke on October 3rd which has left his fighting for his life. Henry was originally slated to be the 7th member of Team Raw but is instead out of action dealing with the family matter.
