WWE’s championship scramble is a hidden jewel and should be apart of 2019.
WWE plans to shake things up in 2019 and so far I haven’t seen any change, well drastic change. But that can all be changed. WWE likes to pop off events at the last minute and build around them (especially glorified house shows) well guess what I have something they should bring into the fold of “New Year…..New WWE”. BRING BACK THE CHAMPIONSHIP SCRAMBLE!!!!
You all remember the championship scramble don’t you? Well I honestly don’t expect you to. Championship scramble was a onetime event that happen at the Unforgiven PPV back in 2008. There were 3 matches that night, all for titles that were done under championship scramble rules and speaking of them here they are:
- 20 minute time limit
- The Champion and random superstar would start the match
- Every 5 minutes another superstar would enter the match until all 5 competitors are in the ring
- Pin fall and submissions could happen at any time and the one who gains either one will be temporary champ for the time being. Whoever is champion when the time expires will become new champion( Temporary champs are not recognized in history)
Pretty simple but at the time of this event, Twitter wasn’t really booming and this match was one that was ahead of its time but now maybe the perfect time to bring this match into the fold and make it a yearly event.
WWE could use this as their new clash of champions and put every title on the line during the night. Right now WWE is crowded with a lot of talent on both rosters.
Raw: Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman, Elias, Bobby Roode, and Kevin Owens
Nakamura, Rusev, Samoa Joe, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Mustafa Ali, Big E
All of this talent and we haven’t even talked about the tag team divisions (let me know when you find it) and the women’s division. A championship scramble match would be a great way for the WWE to put multiple superstars who are waiting for ever in a championship situation that is also unpredictable. Plus a match type like this will definitely get fans involved and tuned in all over the world. There would be no time for slow build ups in this match. You have to come out the gate giving it all you got because there is a time on the clock. It’s perfect for faces to put on a good story of being strong and never quitting plus heels to do heelish tactics to get more heat from the fans.
The one thing I will say is that if they bring this match back then change the time limits. The main thing I hated was that the last person that came in the ring only had 5 mins left to try and gain a pin fall. If they bring this back then every title match should be a 25 minute time limit with the heavyweight titles having a 30 minute time limit. That gives us more action and more time for the superstars to give us an exciting and unpredictable match. WWE already brought back War Games and now it’s a hit. With the right build and superstars Championship Scramble could be something that many fans would be dying to see every single year.
