Throw the boys a bone. There’s a lot going on in WWE today, including this Sunday’s Backlash, but there’s a limit to how much time the company has to cover all of it. With just so much pay per view time a month, you can only put so much stuff on the biggest shows of the year. The pay per views are expanding though and that means there’s a little more room for some of the less important matches, including the occasional title match. That might be the case on Sunday, if WWE decides to add to the card a little bit.
There’s a history here.
Opinion: Well, they need something on the Kickoff Show and it’s not like this is going to make the main card most of the time. Even though the new pay per view format will see the regular shows lasting four hours, they’re also co-branded and that means the smaller matches like this aren’t likely to make it on there all the time. That’s a shame, but it’s also the reality that the cruiserweights have to live with: they’re not a very big deal and that’s not likely to change anytime soon.
