WWE owner Vince McMahon was reportedly unhappy that RAW was once again the subject of timing issues.
PWInsider claim the opening segment of Miz TV went over its allocated time slot and forced the company to cut other matches short on the show.
This week's RAW kicked off with The Miz and John Morrison interviewing both Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair.
The in-ring segment, which then segued into a match between the Queen and Nikki Cross, was said to have gone over by around eight to ten minutes.
WWE Chairman McMahon was reportedly particularly unhappy with being forced to re-jig the rest of the show to accommodate the overrun.
It was stated that the main event between Drew McIntyre and Kofi Kingston did not appear to have any of its time cut back.

And while nothing originally scheduled was bumped from the card completely, several other matches had to be cut short.
McMahon has recently been on a firing splurge with the likes of Braun Strowman, Lana, Ruby Riott, Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy were all let go this week.
That came shortly after WWE dismissed commentator Tom Phillips last month after nearly ten years on camera.
Phillips' departure was also confirmed just days after fellow commentator Adnan Virk was also released.
But more positively, John Cena may be set for a major return in July following a year-long absence from the squared circle.
Cena hasn't wrestled since WrestleMania 36 in April 2020 when he lost a Firefly Fun House Match to 'The Fied' Bray Wyatt.
Yet a potential comeback could align with WWE's plans to reinstate live events in July, which will see fans returning to the stands.
