The reports note that Vince was screaming into his headset during the segment. Michael Cole actually made a line about how the segment was starting to “stink”. According to sources, that line came directly from Vince.
When contacted for confirmation regarding the story, or if Vince McMahon talked to him backstage after the segment, Piper told sources that nobody said anything to him, including Vince. Piper informed us that nothing was said to him backstage and that both The Miz and Dolph Ziggler approached him following the segment and thanked him, saying it was a true honor to work with a legend like him. “No one said a word to me about the Pit. Ziggler came and thanked me as did The Miz,”.
