And that’s with practice people. One of the most common complaints about WWE is the lack of more natural promos. Some of these comes from the issues involving airing things live that cannot be edited later. There are wrestlers who are just fine with this but even good talkers can mess up every now and then. It’s a lot harder when it happens live though, which took place this week.
This week on SmackDown Live, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville had a backstage segment where Rose said they would have a match against the Women’s Tag Team Champions next week. Deville said that they could win the Women’s Tag Team Titles, with Rose saying that if they did, they deserved a shot at the titles. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the segment was filmed live after the two practiced the exchange all day. At the moment, it is not clear what the match’s stipulations will be.
Everyone has a botch. Check out the segment as it aired:
Opinion: This doesn’t look good, but everyone can have a gaffe every now and then. If Rose and Deville can talk well enough, they can get the chance down the line. If they can’t do it, maybe their stuff should be taped. Either way, it’s one of the things that isn’t going to matter in the long run and is just a quick error that can be explained away by commentary. At the end of the day, the live promos can help a bit and one mistake should not derail the idea.
