Scrapped Pitch For Stipulation To Be Added To WWE Match Revealed

Scrapped Pitch For Stipulation To Be Added To WWE Match Revealed WWE

A scrapped pitch for a stipulation to be added to a match on this week’s (August 11) edition of Friday Night SmackDown has been revealed.

On Friday’s show, AJ Styles faced off against Karrion Kross, after Kross targeted Styles a number of months ago.

Styles was ultimately victorious, pinning Kross after a Styles Clash to finally put the powerhouse away.

Per PWInsider, there were backstage discussions about potentially adding a stipulation to AJ Styles vs Karrion Kross.

The report noted that a No Disqualifications bout was considered.

The idea of adding a stipulation was discussed over the last week but was eventually dropped.

It is unclear why WWE chose to drop talk about a stipulation.

Another recent match for which there were rumors about WWE possibly adding a stipulation was Brock Lesnar vs Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam.

Per a previous report, a stipulation was never seriously considered for this SummerSlam match after those within WWE agreed that the bout didn’t need a stipulation.

A number of major stars are reportedly not expected to be at next week’s (August 18) SmackDown taping.
