Eric Bischoff was asked to take part in the Vince McMahon Appreciation on Raw, but turned it down claiming it conflicted with major business meetings.
Others considered for the McMahon Appreciation night included Paul Heyman (shot down by Stephanie) and Verne Gagne (shot down by Kevin Dunn).
Despite reports, WWE referees are told the finishes of the matches, but on occasion, wrestlers are given a different finish. The idea is that the referees are to react as if the match was a shoot.
