You have to spice it up somehow. Friday’s Super ShowDown event featured a Universal Title match with champion Seth Rollins defending against Baron Corbin. Rollins successfully defended the title via some issues Corbin had with the referee and that did not sit well with Corbin. As a result, a rematch was set up for Stomping Grounds but there is going to be a little twist.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Corbin announced that he will be allowed to select a special guest referee for the rematch against Rollins at Stomping Grounds. During the show, Sami Zayn auditioned for the role but by the end of the night, Corbin had not made his decision on who will be guest referee. While not confirmed, the most likely time for the decision will be next week on Monday Night Raw.
It was quite the starting point. Check out Corbin’s announcement of the stipulation:
Opinion: I’m not sure how much interest there is in a match like this so adding in a stipulation is about all you can expect WWE to do. Corbin has never been the strongest challenger in the world and Rollins doesn’t feel like he’s in any real danger against him. The special referee could make things better, but it’s going to depend on who winds up filling the role.
