• Vince McMahon Still Wants A Hair vs. Hair Match In WWE
As seen at SummerSlam, Mandy Rose defeated Sonya Deville in a No Disqualification, Loser Leaves WWE match.
The match was originally supposed to be a Hair vs. Hair match, but Deville’s lawyer in her stalker case didn’t want her to get her head shaved as it would affect the case.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Vince McMahon still plans to do a Hair vs. Hair match, but it’s unknown which wrestlers he’ll pick for it this time.
“It was going to be Hair vs. Hair and then on Friday afternoon, they rewrote SmackDown twice. By the time all was said and done they changed it from a Hair match to a Career match, Loser Leaves WWE. I was told that afternoon it would make sense on Sunday. Well, Sunday is now over and it makes no more sense than it did on Friday. I have absolutely no idea why they did a Loser Leaves Town Match.
I presume that Sonya is gonna be off for a while to deal with this issue and then she’ll come back. I pray she’s not gone forever because she’s a highlight of SmackDown and her promos are unbelievably great. They worked their a$$es off in this match. Apparently Vince McMahon still wants to do a hair match so if you see them shoot angles that look like they’re leading towards a hair match well, there you go.”
