Why WWE should bring back Bragging Rights

Published 3 Comments

Football News

NXT Takeover: Unstoppable was one of the best WWE events of the past decade, it completely upstaged WWE's main roster event 'Payback', and WWE need to act upon what should hopefully be backstage talent given the ratings. 

WWE has been slowly leaking NXT talent on the main roster for the past few years and finally we have an official NXT vs WWE match Sunday night as Kevin Owens faces John Cena at Elimination Chamber. 

Next step

This will just wet the appetite of most fans as they hope that this heads towards a showdown at Survivor Series, or even see the return of The Bragging Rights event.

The pay-per-view took place in 2009 and 2010 and pitted Smackdown up against Raw in every match and the winner would then not only gain "bragging rights " but also a trophy to prove their dominance. 

Following the brand split, there has been no invasions or definite two sides to a Survivor Series event and finally WWE could have found the answer. 

There has been a question raised over the past year as to who the better brand is between WWE main roster and NXT and now finally there could be a way to find out if it's the future or the present who currently define WWE.

Match card

Here is a look at how a match card might look:

NXT Champion Kevin Owens could take on World Champion Seth Rollins and reignite their Ring of Honor rivalry that ended in a bloody and brutal way. 

NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks could take on Divas Champion Nikki Bella in what could be a physical display and one of the best main roster women's matches in years. 

Finn Balor could take on John Cena whilst Sheamus goes up against Hideo Itami and Samoa Joe faces Randy Orton for what would essentially be bragging rights. 

NXT Tag Team Champions Blake and Murphy could take on The New Day in a traditional tag match whilst the five on five elimination match could see Tyler Breeze, Baron Corbin, Rhyno, Enzo Amore and Colin Cassidy up against Dolph Ziggler, King Barrett, Roman Reigns, Ryback and Dean Ambrose.

WWE could even once again make this a Network exclusive event given that a lot of NXT's events are only streamed on the Network, but a showdown between NXT and WWE to finally decide once and for all who the most dominant brand is, is definitely best for business.
