Story on a Conversation I had with a WWE Worker on the Lights Going Out During Mania

While leaving the airport in Orlando earlier today, I spoke directly to a WWE worker who worked on the electrical crew and was well aware of last night's incident of where the lights went out during the BunnyMania match. He told me that it was a blown transformer, and that the show and lights were running on backup generators for awhile.

While the video screens were down, they were re-routing wires frantically to try and get things back to normal. At the arena, at first many thought it was some storyline when the lights went out, but when the girls continued to fight as if nothing happened, you knew that it was not planned. I can only imagine Vince and the company going nuts backstage when the lights went out on the biggest stage of the biggest show in the history of the company.
