Tie them up. There are a lot of stipulations that can be added to a match to make it more personal. That being said, the tricky part is to figure out which stipulation fits in with which story. That can be rather difficult and you can see when something doesn’t quite work. WWE has a hit and miss record with picking stipulations, but this time they seem to have figured it out quite well.
This week on SmackDown, Drew McIntyre announced that he had requested and been granted a strap match against Karrion Kross at Extreme Rules on October 8. This comes after Kross has jumped McIntyre from behind multiple times. McIntyre said that he wanted the match so he would know where Kross was at all times. The two then brawled with the strap tying them together.
Opinion: WWE seems to have gotten it right here as this stipulation does fit the story that they are telling. Kross has jumped McIntyre from behind multiple times but now Kross can’t sneaks up on him this time. I’m not sure how the match is going to go or how long the story is going to last, but at least they are getting to a stipulation (even in the first match of the feud) that fits what they have been doing.
What do you think of the idea? Who wins the match? Let us know in the comments below.
