6 Ups And 8 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (Feb 11)
7. Announced Match
Last week, we got a painful segment between Dana Brooke and
Natalya where Dana tried to apologize to Nattie for costing them a shot at the
WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship.
It appeared that Natalya was ignoring Dana (she simply had
earbuds in and didn’t hear her), prompting her to say she was going to demand a
match against Neidhart next (read: this) week.
Fast-forward to Raw this week, and… nothing.
Look, stuff happens, but it’s not like Nattie or Dana had anything
else going on during the program. The half-hour dedicated to the six-man tag
match and surrounding shenanigans could have been shortened by 7-8 minutes and
no one would have complained.
Even if you weren’t going to do the match, then pay a bit of
lip service to it. Michael Cole making a 30-second announcement that the match
was postponed until next week would have been enough.
