Well, it is back. WWE has not had any serious competition in a very long time, but that has changed a bit with AEW. While AEW is nowhere near the level of WWE overall, they are offering a high level alternative for a change and that makes things all the more interesting. One thing that AEW has done is pick off a few of the old WCW trademarks, which has not sat well with WWE. Now though they are doing something about one of their own.
According to 411mania.com, WWE will be bringing back their New Year’s Revolution name for an upcoming tour. The tour will start on January 4 in Cape Girardeu, Missouri and wrap up on March 15 in Youngstown, Ohio, with the possibility of more dates being added. New Year’s Revolution ran every January from 2005-2007, with each show coming before the Royal Rumble later in the same month.
There was some good stuff in that series. Check out a little something from each show:
Opinion: This comes off as little more than a reaction to AEW, which has also recently announced their own Revolution pay per view. That being said, it’s not like this was some major show in WWE’s history and just throwing the name on a tour is at least using the property. Why they refuse to bring some of those older names back is beyond me, but at least we get shows like Payback and Battleground and all those other inspired ideas.
Do you like this idea? Which other shows would you like to see make a return? Let us know in the comments below.
