Interbrand matches are back in WWE, starting next week

Post Wrestling previously reported that WWE was set to reintroduce a rule that would allow for crossover matches between wrestlers on Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown. That rule, it would seem, is simply the brands being able to extend an invitation.

One would assume this is a response to sagging ratings on both brands. It’s fascinating, then, that Baron Corbin was the first wrestler chosen to come over for a match, considering he’s been blamed for rating woes in the past.

Either way, the spirit of the Wild Card rule is back, because WWE just can’t seem to stick to a true brand split.
