WWE news and notes…
– For those that didn’t order WWE Night of Champions, the Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE Divas Championship had a bad/blown finish. While I couldn’t imagine it being part of the script, Naomi was laid out with Brie Bella on top of her and the referee didn’t count. Instead, Natalya used it to setup a double sharpshooter while the referee went “deer in the headlights.” They made reference to the referee not counting on announce but no explanation was given. Theoretically, it could be inserted into storyline but the lack of logic drove me nuts, especially when there was a screwy finish involving the referee(s) later in the night.
