Survivor Series ended with Shayna Baszler choking out Bayley to win a champion vs champion vs champion contest. Then Becky Lynch laid out Baszler to close out the night standing tall.
Fans did not seem to react well to this main event and they wanted more. The fact that rumors of Ronda Rousey’s return not coming to fruition didn’t help matters. Vince McMahon wasn’t a fan of this match either.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained WWE’s reasons for putting the women’s triple threat match on last. It made sense on paper, but it was not a winner in execution.
“I think that they felt that #1 they wanted to end the show with Shayna. I think that Shayna is really high on their list of things and people they want to push as stars. I think that they felt that Becky is the biggest star so she could go on last and I think they expected from the build because of all the three-ways that certainly had the best build that it would get the most reaction and it didn’t.”
“I mean reasoning, I can see the reasoning why they put it last, but you it didn’t work in that position unfortunately.”
WWE might have had their reasoning for placing the women’s triple threat on last, but it didn’t seem to register with the audience. Vince McMahon obviously wasn’t much of a fan either so we’ll have to see what’s next for the Women’s Evolution in WWE.
