WWE kicked off the Queen’s Crown tournament this past Friday night on SmackDown with Zelina Vega beating Toni Storm, and Carmella going over Liv Morgan.
Both matches were just two minutes long, which has been a trend as of late with women’s matches on television that don’t involve top stars such as Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Bianca Belair.
Fightful Select reported there were plans for Morgan to win her match to advance in the tournament, but plans changed to Carmella winning.
It was also stated there has been ‘significant frustration’ expressed from both in-ring talent and staff regarding the way WWE has been booking women’s wrestling and how much time they’re given for matches.
The Queen’s Crown tournament continues on this Monday’s episode of Raw with Shayna Baszler vs. Dana Brooke, and Doudrop vs. Natalya.
