WWE Cancels Another SmackDown Event Over Wild Card Rule Fourth Week In A Row

Quote:
WWE has canceled another upcoming SmackDown live event.

The American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas announced today that the blue brand live event scheduled for Monday has been canceled. The reason given was a scheduling conflict, but this is to allow top SmackDown Superstars to appear on Monday's RAW under the WWE Wild Card Rule. Monday's show will be the final red brand episode before WWE Super ShowDown.

Below is the announcement from the arena issued to ticket holders:

"The WWE: SmackDown live event scheduled for Monday June 3rd at American Bank Center Arena in Corpus Christi, TX has been cancelled due to a scheduling conflict. All fans who purchased tickets for the Corpus Christi, TX live event should go to their point of purchase for refunds."

This is the fourth SmackDown live event that has been canceled in the past six weeks due to blue brand talents being needed at RAW for the Wild Card Rule. WWE has been focused on bringing up ratings and improving live event business. While the Wild Card Rule was created to generate a buzz for TV, it looks like it could be hurting live event business.

The wildcard rule is a mess.

Why even schedule them at this point?

Cancel these Smackdown Live events, get the Smackdown roster to RAW, barely have 1 match in the first hour of RAW.

This wildcard rule thing is going on so swell! /sarcasm

So the Wild Card rule is somehow helping them on TV but it is hurting their live events...doesn't look too good as it is creating an absolute mess. I also read something about injuries piling up too which is not very helpful in the long run. I've always had a feeling that the Wild Card rule was a band-aid approach to a serious problem.

Wild card bs has made things worse for both shows.

SD feels irrelevent and is essentially the same Raw recap show it was pre split.

Raw is shit as ever + a random Roman match and feud each which feels so out of place since he's supposed to be on SD...

Also, the wildcard rule seems to only be "beneficial" for Raw, they send Raw's geeks over and that only takes time away from SD wrestlers. While each week Kofi and Roman (SD's top stars) are on Raw.

What a complete disaster.

Ugh. What an absolute mess things have become. They truly don’t know what they AEW doing. Now they are pissing off paying fans in an attempt to raise ratings and ratings are not getting any better.

I thought TV didn't matter anymore to the company? lol they are canceling house shows because USA Network doesn't like that they moved Roman from RAW.

It's going to be worse when the FOX move happens. They should just end the brand split.
