Now I know that some of you might point this out as a negative thing or try and disprove my opinion on the situation. But that has never stopped me before so I am going to express it anyway and if you don't agree feel free to let me know your opinion. Though in some cases I can place the blame on working for not seeing the event, but I didn't even realize that the event for was set for today until I saw that Mike Johnson from PWInsider was covering the event. This has happened with a lot of WWE PPV's due to the poor way the company promotes most of their events outside of the big four.
Starting in July when the company first announced the all women's PPV event many fans were wondering what type of dream matches we would see at the event. Weeks would go by and very little would be announced for the event and then one dream match was set Trish Stratus vs Alexa Bliss though this would've been a fantastic match to build around it isn't enough to sell a show. The reality is that the weeks following the announcement were spent building to the Supershow in Australia and Summerslam which the latter is understandable. Though the Smackdown side had Charlotte & Becky's feud for the Women's title that was it and that is actually one grip fans have with the event is most of Smackdown's women's division was shoved into a battle royal.
Overall instead of picking a part the show or again running down the WWE's build to the event the clear message I will put over is that I was excited for the event and even thought about attending early on. However, as I said to someone who asked about why I didn't attend the event "Why I am going to spend money on an event that the WWE doesn't care about. Even with the "long term booking" of the Rousey/Bella's feud it still truly felt like the show lacked just the same importance it did when it was announced. The fact that work did play a factor aside this was a major missed opportunity by WWE as there is no reason they could've just started building the event either right at the moment of announcement or soon after. To put a positive spin on it though this is a start for the women's division and another stop on their long road back to a positive perception in the WWE. Congrats to the Women's Division on another milestone accomplishment!!
