Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler Also Effected by “Technical Errors” at RAW Last Night

– WWE says that another match was effected at last night’s RAW due to technical problems with voting – the United States Title Match between champion Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston. WWE says that the match stipulation should have been “Vickie Guerrero banned from ringside” instead of “2 of 3 Falls Match.”

Here’s the latest update from WWE’s website:

“Votes for the third poll’s bout — Kane vs. Mark Henry in an Arm Wrestling Contest — were counted correctly. However, problems began to occur again during the next poll determining a match stipulation between United States Champion Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston. At this point, so many text votes were received that the system overloaded, crashed and had to be restarted.

With little information to work from, WWE management selected to follow the system’s earliest projections, which determined that the 2-out-of-3 Falls Match had been the people’s choice. It was not until later that it was discovered that “Vickie Guerrero Banned from Ringside” was actually the top vote getter.

Restarting the tabulating system allowed for things to run smoothly with the voting for the Triple Threat Match to determine a No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship going off without a hitch.”

    Real journalists know the difference between “affect” and “effect”. Apparently W-E headline writers aren’t real journalists!

    YEah maybe the WWE should do the matches that were SUPPOSED to run in a way to ACTUALLY give power to the people!

    Yea, the 2 out of 3 falls match was good.

    I can see the logic of WWE making an announcement about Cara/Bourne in order to set up a match, but why even bother mentioning the Kingston/Ziggler vote? Unless they’re trying to push for a match at MITB, they should’ve just swept this one under the rug.

    Ya i think the 2 out of 3 falls match was a hell of alot better then vickie being band from ringside would of been. It would of maid it better cause i wouldnt have to look at her as much but the 2 out of 3 falls match was pretty good. As for the other ones ya sin cara vs evan bourne would of been better but who really cares.

    “top vote getter”? lmao, interesting wording

  • Camille

    @Bill Uhh, no thanks. I’d rather see Smackdown than Raw What-If?.

    Anyway, 2 of 3 falls is much preferable to banning someone from ringside.

    I say that they tape the matches we were supposed to get on SD if they’re truly sorry for these problems.
