WWE Robs Fans with False Advertising

One thing I noticed about WWE lately is that they have gotten exceedingly awful about false advertising. In the last 6 months alone, WWE has falsely advertised on RAW, Smackdown, and now most recently Wrestlemania 27. Back when WWE held the special "Old School" edition of RAW, commercials advertised Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat and the Ultimate Warrior, neither of which appeared (it should be noted that everyone else in the commercial appeared). Then a few weeks ago, WWE aired commercials advertising Edge & Christian reuniting to face the Corre for the tag team titles on Smackdown. However, when Smackdown aired both Edge and Christian wrestled in singles matches and the tag titles weren't even defended. This next one takes the cake though. WWE spent weeks advertising a US Title match at Wrestlemania 27 between Daniel Bryan and Sheamus. Then, to the shock of approximately 800,000 people who paid to see it on ppv... the match wasn't shown. At the last second, they decided to make it a dark match so anyone who paid to see Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan as advertised were blatantly screwed out of a great match-up. WWE needs to be held accountable for their false advertising. It'd be one thing if Sheamus or Bryan had gotten injured right before Wrestlemania, but they weren't. It isn't right and the people that paid to see that match and were robbed deserve to be compensated.
