• WWE Reportedly Bringing Back The Wild Card Rule On Special Request

WWE ended the brand split last year after WrestleMania by introducing the Wild Card Rule. The Wild Card Rule was just in effect for a few months, as WWE ended it after the Draft in last October.

It looks lime the company is planning to end the brand split with some limits, as John Pollock of Post Wrestling is reporting that they’ll make a huge announcement about it on tonight’s RAW.

The idea is that this will be a simpler version of last year’s Wild Card Rule, which didn’t go over well with most fans.

It was also noted that the new ruling for RAW and SmackDown is expected to keep talent crossovers to a minimum.

The idea for the crossovers reportedly came at the request of FOX and the USA Network.
