    The Grapevine (11/27/20): Who Booked The Final Farewell, New Day/Hurt Business, ThunderDome Note

    Undertaker at WWE Survivor Series 2020

    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    Who was in charge of the Undertaker's Final Farewell

    Vince McMahon was the person in charge of scripting and booking the Undertaker's Final Farewell segment on Survivor Series. It's said that he was hands-on all day figuring it out. (Source: PWInsider)

    We say: Well, now you know why it was the way it was.

    Note on the RAW Tag Team Championship match last Monday

    The finish to the RAW Tag Team Championship match between the New Day and the Hurt Business last Monday was reportedly botched. The original finish was apparently supposed to be the Hurt Business winning by countout, but Kofi Kingston and Shelton Benjamin stayed out too long, resulting in the double countout. The situation was compounded by MVP goading the New Day to restart the match, after which Xavier Woods rolled up Benjamin for the win. (Source: Wrestling Observer Live)

    We say: While this sounds like one of those things where someone could just be speculating on what exactly went down during the match, it's worth noting that the entire proceedings were so confusing that we're giving it the benefit of the doubt—it could not have possibly been booked that way originally. 

    Update on the ThunderDome setup

    WWE's last show at the Amway Center is on December 7. However, they will be setting up at Tropicana Field this Saturday. It's being reported that the WWE will stay in Tropicana Field twice as long as they stayed in the Amway Center. (Source: Fightful Select)

    We say: It'll definitely be interesting to see how the new ThunderDome will look.
