Breaking News: WWE Raw Voting Error Robs Fans of Evan Bourne-Sin Cara Match

Erik BeastonFeatured Columnist IVJanuary 6, 2017

WWE.com is reporting that an error with voting, caused by a "backlog of voting from the Divas Title Match," resulted in Mason Ryan facing Evan Bourne, rather than the obvious favorite Sin Cara.

It is extremely rare for the company to admit such a mistake. They have promised more details throughout the day on both their WWE.com website and Facebook.

Most fans immediately recognized something weird had happened with the voting when Ryan, a heel and member of the uninspiring Nexus faction, received 50 percent of the fan vote, while Sin Cara and Jack Swagger received significantly less. There has been an outcry from fans, claiming the vote was rigged in Ryan's favor. Stay tuned to Bleacher Report for more news as it becomes available.



  WWE.com reports an overflow of votes from the Divas Championship is responsible for the miscast votes. Kelly Kelly, the leading vote-getter for the title match, was option B for fans to choose from. When the vote overflowed into the Evan Bourne match choice, Mason Ryan, also option B, was the recipient of Kelly's votes. This caused the tainted results and cost fans the opportunity to see Evan Bourne vs. Sin Cara on Monday night.
