WWE Will Reportedly Not Have Wrestling During Commercial Breaks Anymore

Quote:
Two-out-of-three falls matches on televisions have been pretty rare on WWE television, however last week there were two. Both RAW and SmackDown featured a two-out-of-three falls match, with The New Day defeating Baron Corbin, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens in two straight falls on RAW, followed by Kofi Kingston & Seth Rollins defeating Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens in two straight falls on SmackDown the following night.

There is apparently a reason for those matches taking place. Bryan Alvarez reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon held a meeting last week and told everyone that there will be no more wrestling during commercial breaks.

This is a pretty significant change as most of the matches on television usually go through a commercial break. With this change, the main way you can have matches go through a break with no wrestling is by having them have multiple falls.

It remains to be seen how long this change will stick, as several of the recent changes that WWE has made over the past couple of months (dimming the lights in the third hour, the 'Electric Chair' segment) were quickly dropped.

For viewers at home, it's nice they didn't miss anything.
For people spending money to see it live, that has got to be tedious.

I guess most TV matches will be Daniel Bryan/Sheamus at WM28 length now.

Is this a defacto ban on suicide dives?

RAW ROLLS ON... no more.

So somebody is going to get pinned... and do what? Lay there for 90 seconds to 3 minutes, then jump up? How is this going to work?

Maybe try structuring the show so you can have a full match, commercial, full match, commercial, instead of this weird slapdash "fix"

There has been an AEWakening... have you felt it?

The mark wars have begun again

DAMN THAT TRACK IS HOT

THAT'S GOTTA BE KANE (IS BACK) (AGAIN)

That would be stupid to start having a bunch 2 out of 3 falls matches every single week.

The sponsors can put their product through running text or animation or split the picture into two side, one side for sponsor product and the other one for the match

Plain and simple they need to have commercials before or after the matches that's it that's what all Elite supposedly will do

The commercials has a better storyline than WWE anyway

1.72 rating, some kids, some soccermoms and some smarks are left to watch this company. Nobody else gives a fuck anymore.
