– WWE says that another match was effected at last night’s RAW due to technical problems with voting – the United States Title Match between champion Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston. WWE says that the match stipulation should have been “Vickie Guerrero banned from ringside” instead of “2 of 3 Falls Match.”
Here’s the latest update from WWE’s website:
“Votes for the third poll’s bout — Kane vs. Mark Henry in an Arm Wrestling Contest — were counted correctly. However, problems began to occur again during the next poll determining a match stipulation between United States Champion Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston. At this point, so many text votes were received that the system overloaded, crashed and had to be restarted.
With little information to work from, WWE management selected to follow the system’s earliest projections, which determined that the 2-out-of-3 Falls Match had been the people’s choice. It was not until later that it was discovered that “Vickie Guerrero Banned from Ringside” was actually the top vote getter.
Restarting the tabulating system allowed for things to run smoothly with the voting for the Triple Threat Match to determine a No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship going off without a hitch.”
