What was the colossal botch committed by Vince McMahon and the company?

WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Naomi squared off against Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan. Although this battle was for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship, WWE displayed the United States Championship graphics.

The WWE production team made a massive blunder on live television, but realized it quickly. They cut away and displayed the corrected augmented reality of the Women’s Tag Team Championship.

What happened in the Women’s Tag Team Championship match?

Naomi and The Legit Boss successfully defended the Women’s Tag Team Championship. During the last segment of this match, Banks and Naomi sent Liv Morgan out of the ring. Finally, The Boss and Trinity Fatu (Naomi) had the last laugh on Brutality and Morgan when they pinned ‘The Nightmare’.

‘The Nightmare’ Rhea Ripley did not enjoy her defeat and yelled at Morgan because she did not counter the pinfall. Ripley’s frustration was short-lived until she attacked Liv Morgan from behind.

Rhea Ripley’s heel turn was a callback from when Nikki A.S.H. turned heel on her. Even Ripley’s former tag team partner Nikki A.S.H. was not happy when they lost the women’s tag team titles.

 

WWE fans witnessed a huge botch that the company could have easily avoided. Even if WWE corrected their mistake a moment later, it was already late.
