    Do you remember why Money In The Bank match was actually set up for the women? To choose the No. 1 contender since The Welcoming Committee interfered in Charlotte's title match against Naomi. And then someone who hasn't even had a television debut match is made the No. 1 contender. I don't see any sense in that.

    #1 contender is abstract. It does not mean that you get the next title shot. Getting a title shot does not mean that you are the #1 contender. Winning a case does not make you the #1 contender.

    There are many ways to get to the title. Even boxing and MMA (real sports) don't go by some linear order to have title bouts. This isn't new to professional wrestling. Why are you holding the women up to a standard that the men have not lived by for as long as I can remember?

    Really? I'm not saying sarcastically. Actually asking?

    I always thought that the No. 1 contender will get the next title shot. Or whoever gets the next title shot is the new No. 1 contender.

    I know that winning MITB briefcase won't make you the No. 1 contender. But that's the story told on Smackdown. And I didn't like it. Just like I didn't like someone getting a title match before even debuting on TV.

    I'm not sure why this bothers you. WWE has done things that sound screwed up for years with the title matches they book. This one at least had some story and build.

    How did you feel this week with Heath Slater getting an IC title match? While he is clearly not debuting in ring I don't see anything in his recent wins and losses that makes him any more deserving than Lana.

    Almost same about Heath Slater. But at least we have seen him perform before. Lana hadn't even had a debut singles match before getting the title shot. It's not about deserving either. Even if someone I love as wrestler would've been in place of Lana, I wouldn't have liked it either.
