Charlotte lost on her Raw debut because of Vince McMahon

Published Add your comment

It is no secret that the Divas division of WWE is not what it used to be and is certainly not the priority of those in charge.

This was proved even more so when NXT Women's Champion Charlotte made her WWE debut this past Monday on Raw.

Surely success

Heading into her match with Natalya, you would have thought that, given Charlotte is to defend her NXT Championship at the Takeover 3: R Evolution, a win against the WWE Diva would enable her to prove her worth as Champ.

But this wasn't to be the case. In a match which lasted no longer than a few minutes, Charlotte was barely able to perform a move and boast her athletic ability, let alone promote her title match.

For some reason WWE thought it would best that Natalya got the win during Monday night's bout, which was even more odd considering it was Natalya who Charlotte defeated during the first Takeover event to win the title.

Controversial change

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter gave some background on why the result of this match was as it was:

"I got a ton of reaction from people in WWE, all totally mystified how this actually happened...According to two sources, Natalya asked to lose feeling it was the right thing. But Vince decided against it."

We have been made aware more often of late that the decisions made by the authoritative members of WWE about how matches pan out can often change at the last minute.

Even the biggest storyline of WWE this year; Brock Lesnar's ending of The Undertaker's streak at WrestleMania XXX, was apparently a result which was found out just before the pair took to the ring.

The reality is, however, that these last-minute decisions and changes don't always succeed in shocking the WWE Universe but rather disappoint it instead.

With the current state of the WWE Diva's Division, you would think the industry might put a little more effort into and focus more on the talent it boasts within it.

Longer Diva's matches, or even a potential return from a female professional wrestling legend are just two of the ways that WWE could change this area of the company for the better.
