As previously reported, Monday’s there were technical difficulties that affected the voting results during Monday’s “Power To The People” episode of WWE RAW.
During the match to determine who would face Evan Bourne, many people (including Bourne) were surprised to see that Mason Ryan received the most votes – when fellow high-flier and fan favorite Sin Cara seemed like the logical opponent. It turns out – once the voting was properly counted – 90% of the fans did in fact vote for Sin Cara to face Evan Bourne.
In light of the technical difficulties, WWE is giving the fans what they voted for next week. The WWE website posted the following statement on Tuesday:
“During Monday’s Raw broadcast, WWE fans were given the option to text A, B or C to 46993 (GOWWE) in order to decide what they wanted to happen on the show. Things went perfectly at first when text votes selected Kelly Kelly (option B) to take on Brie Bella for the Divas Championship. However, our vote tabulating provider’s system became overwhelmed, causing these votes to definitively affect the following contest, in which Mason Ryan (also option B) was voted into a match against Evan Bourne — even though, as it was later discovered, Sin Cara had received 90 percent of the total votes in WWE.com’s Live Chat poll, and should have been Bourne’s opponent.”
