WWE is gearing up for a big change when the company enters a new deal in October with the Fox Network. The Wild Card Rule was invented as a way to draw more interest to the company, but it has consistently taken Superstars away from SmackDown’s weekly Monday house show.
The company was scheduled to have a live event in Salina, Kansas, but now that’s not happening. They have canceled this Monday’s house show making it the third US Monday house show that the company has canceled according to PW Insider. The event has been rescheduled to October 26th which is a Saturday.
They ran a Monday house show during their European tour because those dates couldn’t be called off, but that is not the case in America.
With the new 24/7 Title and the Wild Card Rule, it appears that they are trying anything they can to draw interest to their television shows. This lack of focus on house shows might be required if they want to help pull up their ratings.
So you can expect SmackDown Superstars on RAW once again this week because they will be available.
