That was actually them GIVING the fans what they want.  Michael Cole started shouting that it was a "new era", which was mostly hilarious because the thought of anyone caring about Roode and Gable and the Tag belts that much after the way they've all been beat down is laughable, but also because they didn't realize that having Rockstar Spud pinned in a handicap match is the worst way to transfer the titles in a meaningful way.  Vince genuinely doesn't know that, and no one wants to tell him. 

Vince might have watched WrestleMania 5 on the network while in transit and said “that’s it; this demolition v POP and Fuji match is awesome let’s do something like this tonight!!!”
