Whenever WrestleMania season kicks off, the fans rightfully expect the stars that are booked to compete in a match to appear on a weekly basis - especially if they’re the big-name stars who are going to feature in the main event matches.
That’s why there’s an understandable annoyance at Brock Lesnar still not appearing on Monday Night RAW. This is because he’s hardly ever on television in the first place and he’s going to be in one of the biggest matches at the Grandest Stage of Them All where he defends his Universal Championship against Roman Reigns.
In fact, even WWE knows it’s important as they went out of their way to reveal that Ronda Rousey would be appearing on every episode of RAW in the build-up to WrestleMania 34 next month.
Again, it’s something you would expect when you take into account that she’s going to be teaming up with Kurt Angle to take on Triple H and Stephanie in a mixed tag team match; with many outlets speculating that this match could be the actual main event in New Orleans.
As we know by now, the former UFC bantamweight champion was nowhere to be seen on RAW this week to continue hyping up her WrestleMania match, which also happens to be her debut.
Pro Wrestling Sheet have revealed that the original article WWE posted which claimed that Rousey would be on every episode of RAW ahead of WrestleMania has now actually been deleted - which you can view below.
However, WWE took a ridiculous step to apologise to WWE fans that were in attendance this week on RAW and expected to see Rousey in action.
Twitter user @XThreeee revealed that as an apology for not getting Rousey, WWE officials were handing out free mini Snickers.
Other Twitter users have laughed at WWE’s attempt at an apology, with some annoyed that they didn’t even bother providing the full-size version. On a more serious note, though, it’s easy to understand why the fans would be annoyed by this as promising something and making up for it like this because they weren’t able to hold up their end is frustrating, even though cards are always subject to change.
We don’t usually see this happen, but WWE might want to avoid making this a regular occurrence in the important coming weeks as we edge closer to WrestleMania 34 as handing out chocolate isn’t really a good substitute for seeing a world-class, popular athlete live on RAW.
