Vince McMahon wasnâ<80><99>t pleased with his own performance on this weekâ<80><99>s edition of RAW during the million dollar giveaway segments and neither was anyone else in the company. â<80><9c>In some ways it highlighted the problems of the company. I felt bad for him. It was depressing,â<80> said one source within the company. â<80><9c>This is getting really scary and itâ<80><99>s getting like WCW.â<80>
The idea of featuring Charlie Haas as a special guest was pitched by the creative staff as a rib, as Vince has stated to the writers in the past that heâ<80><99>d rather watch paint dry than watch Haas. The idea of those two appearing on camera together was meant to be a joke, which Vince apparently got a kick out of and approved of.
