King Of The Ring graphic botched on RAW

The King Of The Ring was reintroduced by the WWE a few weeks back. With the brackets announced as well, the first phase to determine the quarterfinalists of the tournament went underway this week.

During the last episode of RAW, Samoa Joe defeated Cesaro to make it to the quarterfinals. The WWE graphic underneath, however, showed that the Samoan Submission Machine had made it to the semi-finals. Unless there is an underlying bye rule, this seems to be a botch by the production team.

Apart from Samoa Joe, Cedric Alexander, Andrade and Elias made it to the next phase.

    In tournaments, if a winner has no opponent in the same level of a bracket (via some form of disqualification or if the bracket is uneven), they would get a “bye” and bypass to the next level. So for example, if McIntyre/Ricochet ended in a double count-out or some form of no contest, Joe would get a “bye” and face the winner of Miz/Corbin and Cedric/Zayn.

    An entire article for a minor botch?

    I’m hoping Gable takes the whole thing since KO is out….I think Gable should utilize this to show how dangerous & good hebisbin the ring!
