WWE Reportedly Making Changes To Their Match Presentation Starting This Week On Raw



If you are a regular viewer of both WWE Raw and SmackDown, you might notice a few changes in the flow of the program starting this week’s episodes.

It is being reported by Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio that there will no longer be any wrestling during commercial breaks.

Vince McMahon is supposed to have made the decision and announced it during a meeting that was held last week. Allegedly, that was the reason for there being two 2-out-of-3 falls match on Raw and SmackDown last week.

Since many matches during the television’s episodes go through a commercial break, McMahon’s new verdict will change how matches are booked. One way to have matches without a break with no wrestling would be to have a match with multiple falls, so two-out-of-three falls is a good way to manage that.

An updated report on the “no wrestling over commercial breaks” rule was given by John Pollock for Post Wrestling.

According to Pollock, the rule was introduced by McMahon during a production meeting last Monday.

“The idea is that legitimate sports don’t play during the break, so they are adjusting their match presentation,” reports Pollock.

“This resulted in several 2-of-3 falls matches and other ideas to pause the match and resume after the commercial. It will be a challenge to come up with organic ideas to break the matchup, especially on Raw where you have many multiple segment matches for the three-hour format. It does hurt the flow of the match when you have a commercial break in the middle and from a match presentation, it hurts on television,” he added.
