Maybe that's the point (that they were singled out by the crowd)? After all, Roman Reigns/Ambrose vs Wyatt/Harper, Barrett/Stardust vs Neville/and someone?, and the 8-mean were all, in some way, repeats of Summerslam matches as well as the previous weeks' buildup? There were a LOT of matches to ignore last night, so I can see the sensitivity to the women's match getting dumped on by the crowd (the same crowd who somehow think championing the NXT call-ups is equivalent to proudly supporting gender equality in wrestling).

 

 

Oh, I don't disagree. I hate it when the crowd does that shit to the divas. Nikki has every right to be pissed off, hell I was pissed off when they started those stupid chants.

 

However, my frustration comes from the fact that the divas can get over. Sasha Banks v Bayley was a great match and people loved it. Saturday was Triple H's night and his booking was simple. He gave the ladies a stage to shine and they killed it. Monday was Vince's night and he gave the crowd the same damn match the night before. Not only that, but them fighting made no sense because the obvious next step is for PCB to figure out who is going to challenge Nikki for the Championship, not fight Team Bella again for no reason.

 

It's not like you had different crowds. It was mostly the same people who cheered the ladies on Saturday and shit on them on Monday. Yes, the crowd deserves the blame for being assholes, but Vince shares in it for giving them something that didn't advance the story. Yes, the crowd is harder on the divas, which is wrong. However, they usually don't get many matches so each one they do get has to count. The talent pool that Vince has to work with is probably better than Hunter's, but Hunter puts on better diva's matches because he treats them like any other match and not simply an attraction.

 

I also truly believe that Hunter could have easily closed the show with Sasha Banks v Bayley for the NXT Women's Championship as opposed to Balor v Owens and people would have been just as happy. Heck, I did see people on Saturday saying that the Women's Championship match should have ended the show on Social Media.

I get it, but I don't think there's going to be a real match in the traditional sense. Rollins is being cheered by too many people right now, so he needs to go Super Heel like he did with Edge. Sting will have a some segments leading up to Night of Champions, Seth will "take him out" (until Wrestlemania) and people will boo Seth again.

Maybe Vince is getting sentimental at 70. There are lots of guys that deserved to hold the WWE World Championship, but never did and died. Sting definitely is deserving of a run, but I don't think that's what they're going for here. Rollins facing Sting helps him more than Cesaro, Cena, Sheamus or Orton.

The match won't be long, it won't be the main event and it will make it easier for Rollins to defend two titles at Night of Champions.

At this point in his career Sting is more of an attraction than a wrestler and it could help build for Sting v Undertaker at Wrestlemania 32. I don't know, but I do agree that it's definitely an odd choice given that he's 56.

I thought it was disrespectful too, but the booking was pretty bad. How many times can you have the same tag team diva's match? Heck that crowd saw the same match the day before minus one team.

I think angry old man Undertaker would work a lot better if they didn't dye his hair.
