During this week’s opening segment on RAW, John Laurinaitis announced that he had re-hired Big Show on Saturday, a day before he interfered at Over the Limit and helped Laurinaitis defeat John Cena. The problem with that is the stipulation was that if anyone working for WWE interfered in the match, they would be fired.
WWE realized the error and had Michael Cole fix it on commentary, stating that Show agreed in principle to help Laurinaitis but didn’t actually sign the contract until Monday morning.
They also corrected it on their Twitter:
“It’s official! @WWETheBigShow had a verbal agreement with @WWERawGM, but didn’t sign a contract until AFTER #OverTheLimit! #OtungaLaw #WWE”
