WWE News: Seth Rollins Reveals When Wild Card Rule Will Come To An End
WWE introduced the Wild Card Rule in mid-April just after the Superstar Shake-Up. It made a joke out of the brand separation process as superstars could make cross-brand appearances, no matter what. More fun part was that Vince McMahon announced only 4 superstars could overstep from Raw to Smackdown and vice-versa. But literally, anyone has taken advantage of the benefit.
It was clear from reactions of the WWE Universe that they did not like the idea of Wild Card Rule. It was in 2016 when they introduced the brand extension process to save WWE programming which was becoming stale. So to merging both the brands even when the Superstar Shakeup was still available was clearly something unfair. Hopefully, it will come to an end as stated by the top-most player of Monday Night Raw.
Former WWE Universal Champion had a recent interview with Newsweek to talk about the Wild Card Rule. He admitted not being a fan of Vince McMahon introducing this idea for Raw and Smackdown. So once WWE demolishes it, he should be happy. Furthermore, he also hinted when we may likely to see it happening,
“I think once you see the move to Fox it’s really going to tighten down as far as best Wild Card options and stuff like. It’s really cool to see things come together now and get these cool match-ups you might not get in October or November.”

WWE’s move to the FOX Sports Network will be pretty huge considering that it will come up with more mainstream things. The officials of the new host network are not in favor of retaining this Wild Card Rule. So we expect the blue brand to be back in full force and most importantly with a separate roster.
The Architect has also clarified why he did not appear on Smackdown, much. He confirmed being happy to be a Raw guy who does not really like the idea to bleed blue, at all. The Wild Card Rule does not really apply much to him since he has appeared only once on Smackdown during this course where most of the other superstars made regular brand crossovers. Here’s more from Seth,
“RAW is my gig, man. SmackDown is fine, they have two hours. There are people on that show that need TV time. They have so many guys backstage that are starving to get the opportunity right now or they’re just sliding in on backstage vignettes or what have you. I’m not going to go over on their and take over segments every single week. They don’t need it they have a wealth of talent over there. Besides, I don’t want to deal with Shane McMahon more than I have to.”
