#wildcardrule I guess. It hasn’t even been a week since the WWE Draft finished and we have already got a SmackDown star appearing on next week’s Raw.
The Fiend was traded to SmackDown last Friday, but is once again being listed as being part of the post-Raw dark match with Seth Rollins.
These matches have generally ended in a DQ and a lot of booing aimed at Rollins, but as is the way with WWE, once they give us a feud we want, they give it to us a million times so that we’re sick of it after two weeks.
Not only that, but the arena hosting the November 4 episode of Raw has listed a steel cage match between Seth and the Fiend, so this feud may well continue until WrestleMania next year.
Rollins and the Fiend will have an actual rematch of their terrible Hell in a Cell match on October 31 at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. As a falls count anywhere match, I fully expect it to end in a double count out.
The original report was that after the draft, there would be no more wildcard and no more stars appearing on both brands, and while this is just a dark match and therefore not part of storylines, it shows how poor WWE has become at planning ahead.
Perhaps keep the Fiend undrafted until the feud was over so that you don’t have to immediately break your own rules?
