Backstage Update On Who Ran The WWE Evolution PPV, Why WWE Went With Different Lighting In The Arena

The same production crew that works the WWE NXT brand also worked the recent WWE Evolution pay-per-view, according to PWInsider. Most of the production workers who do RAW and SmackDown pay-per-view events were not in attendance for Evolution as they were in Charlotte, North Carolina for Monday's RAW when Evolution hit the air.

WWE's Kevin Dunn was not in attendance for Evolution and did not direct Evolution. Evolution was directed by the same person who oversees the NXT Takeover events and the production truck was ran by the same crew that handles Takeovers.

On a related note, WWE went with a different lighting in the arena for Evolution as a way to give the show a different feel from the "glitzier" WWE productions that we usually see for the main roster.

As noted, Vince McMahon was backstage for Evolution. PWInsider noted that Vince reportedly arrived just before the show was to begin and spent most of the night "observing the event" in the Gorilla position.
