Official ruling on Ricochet vs. Joe match infuriates Baron Corbin: Raw, Sept. 2, 2019


Now, to take you back to
what happened moments ago, quarter finals match up,
King of the Ring tournament. Winner of this match would face
Baron Corbin in the semi-finals.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>Joe and Ricochet, both shoulders down.>>One, two, three!>>And the referee in a position
to make a three count. [SOUND] Problem is, Joe and
Ricochet shoulders both down, the official didn’t know
who to give the victory to.>>Now we looked at several different
angles, but no answers yet.>>And
both arms had crossed each other as well. [SOUND] Corey Graves our broadcast
colleague is in the backstage area looking to get an answer to this.>>I’m here with WWE referee, John Cone. John, obviously, an extremely
controversial ending to the Samoa Joe, Ricochet, King of The Ring match. You were the referee of record,
what’s the official decision?>>So-
>>I’ll tell you the official result.>>Samoa Joe and Ricochet,
they eliminate each other. They’re out, no more. So guess what? I get a buy to the finals of
the King of the Ring tournament.>>Actually, Baron, WWE management
has decided that Ricochet and Samoa Joe were both not eliminated.>>How?>>Instead, they will both advance.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>That’s not possible.>>And next week, you’re gonna face
them in a triple threat match.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>A triple threat match?

    Its wrestling so I shouldn't take it so serious but this is the stupidest decision ever. Whoever the ref was looking at when he was counting is the winner. He couldn't confirm the shoulders of the other were down. And to people cannot win, the can either draw or lose.

    I would just like to say Baron Corbin, is the best heel in pro wrestling. Sure there's others, but good heels were victims of attempted murder back then, we can't do it now, so Go Away heat is the beat we got

    I have to admit when I saw the 1st camera angle it looked like Samoa Joe’s shoulder was up even though it was on top of Ricochet’s face

    Baron is such a crappy actor. I can't believe anything he say. There's no realism behind his rants or scrips.

    i don't get why Baron calls himself a wolf when Drew's the only looking like a wolf when Baron looks like Humpty Dumpty.

    This overall "King of the Ring" Tournament has been nothing but awesome & spectacular throughout. Just goes to show you with the booking of that Triple Threat Match to enhance the prominence of these overall performances.

    What John Cone did was good. Its a match where u have to follow the procedures. If both shoulders r down, then u count to 3. If both men have 1 shoulder down, but the other on top of them u still count to 3. Being an official is important cuz John cant stand there and be act hes gonna wait for Joe and Ricochet to get up

    Why does WWE keep doing stuff with Baron Corbin. He sucks at wrestling and he sucks at acting. They just need to let Baron go

    Bruh, this is so funny because now they've found a way to end a match and have both guys go over.
