Actual Reason For Vince McMahon Introducing Wild Card Rule

Vince McMahon kicked off RAW this week by announcing an idea he came up with himself called the Wild Card Rule.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE was receiving pressure from NBC Universal who owns the USA Network due to the declining ratings. 

“Fox wanted more storylines that are going to be on both RAW and SmackDown. You know, NBC Universal was real upset about the ratings especially in the third hour and was asking questions about: ‘Our ratings are this, this, and this why’d we give away Roman Reigns?’”

“Do the pressure’s on that the top stars work both shows. So it’ll be different guys. I guess it’ll be four guys on both shows in theory.”

We will have to wait and see what happens to the ratings now.
