WWE.com Has Some Quick Web Producers

Last night's episode of RAW ended around 11:05 p.m. ET with an explosion. The kind you may have expected in the Sopranos finale.

Instead of Tony, however, it was WWE chairman Vince McMahon who was presumed dead after sliding into a limo that was subsequently blown to smithereens.

WWE.com was quick to act, posting the above splash image on the company's official site. Timestamp: 11:07 p.m. ET.

Damn, those web producers work fast. Collecting a just-shot photo from a cameraman who happened to be shooting limos that might blow up unexpectedly, and designing a splash page two minutes after a "live" event. Not to mention the grief they must've felt. Maybe they gave themselves three seconds to cry before selecting the perfect font.
