I guess so, but i'm just hoping that the criteria isn't TOO strict, to the point that it restricts creativity and individuality. After all, we all have different tastes in wrestling and I think that those tastes and preferences should be given the chance to be showcased. I understand how judging say a Mysterio/Cena 2011 match and then an Flair/Steamboat 89 match can be very difficult for the judges, but I really do dislike the idea of restricting the writers TOO much.
I wouldn't mind criteria such as; The match has to be X amount of minutes, it has to be a 1 v 1 match, has to end cleanly etc. But I really don't like the idea of it being like "Your match has to be John Cena vs. CM Punk in a Steel Cage match with CM Punk going over after an Elbow Drop from the top of the steel cage".
I'm not expecting anything like that, but that's what I meant by criteria. I obviously know there are going to be guidelines and such.
