Right now, there are a handful of storylines in WWE that are in the firing line from WWE fans.

The AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura feud has failed to live up to the lofty expectations, the WWE Universe never really gives Roman Reigns a break anyway, so his rivalry with Jinder Mahal has always been in for criticism.

ROUSEY VS. JAX

Although, the storyline between Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey has received mixed reviews so far. It did kick off from nowhere, though, with the two confirming the match at a media event with fans critical of WWE's decision to have the former UFC star leapfrog more deserving contenders.

Now, The Baddest Woman on the Planet is receiving her first opportunity at the RAW Women's Championship as she battles Jax for the title at Money in the Bank this Sunday, a match which is speculated to be the main event in Chicago.

It's been hit and miss so far. There has been criticism at how quickly Jax turned heel without explanation, while Rousey continues to draw praise for her facial expressions and the ability to go from smiling to a look of straight-savage at the flick of a switch.

There had been reports that Rousey was unhappy with a segment last week, while there was criticism this week at how easily Jax tapped out to an armbar - something their whole storyline was built around.

MISTAKE OR INTENTIONAL?

Now, fans have noticed a continuity error, and although the WWE would usually be called out for something like this, some believe that the WWE did this intentionally for storyline purposes. As you'll be able to see in the tweet below, Natalya was showing off the results of her knee injury, with her left knee taped up in one image.

Backstage, Natalya's right knee was taped up. As expected, WWE fans let the company hear it for the continuity error as it was something so basic to spot. However, some fans refused to be dragged into the conversation as they have noticed WWE could be planning something a lot bigger.

As you'll be able to see below, a lot of fans also think this was done intentionally by WWE, as it could lead to Natalya turning on Rousey at the Money in the Bank event where she will cash in the contract to leave as the new champion - effectively turning her heel.

After WrestleMania 34, Natalya was thought to be turning heel to feud with Rousey as she knows her skill-set the best and it looks like the WWE could finally pull the trigger on that.

Plus, with the latest odds favouring Natalya to win Money in the Bank, everything seems to be falling into place nicely for the inevitable to happen.

What do you make of the mistake from WWE? Was it an actual error or did the WWE do this on purpose? Have YOUR say in the comments section below.
