• WWE Wild Card Rule Only Going Away Temporarily (Details)
According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE Wild Card rule is only going away temporarily.
WWE plans to temporarily solidify the brand split to build up to the Survivor Series 2019 PPV, which focuses on RAW vs. SmackDown.
When WWE is done with the Survivor Series PPV, they plan to loosen up on the brand split in the new year, and start using the Wild Card Rule again heading into the Royal Rumble & WrestleMania season.
This means that WWE will only stick to the brand split for a 6-8 week period in order to adhere to their current Survivor Series RAW vs. SmackDown format.
