    I'd like to see a war of the wire match every so often; or continuing with the Survivor Series theme, make a return to the sole survivors, then have everyone battle it out until one person is left who gets a title shot at Royal Rumble.

    I want the KOTR back. I also want to see TLC, HIAC and Elimination Chamber not be PPV's. They have more meaning when you don't know they are coming by looking at a calendar.

    Yeah...kind of kills the importance of the gimmick when you have to shoehorn in random matches for it just because.

    Considering both HIAC matches at HIAC were completely flubbed, then only one actual TLC match happened at TLC.....they need to rethink their approach to gimmick matches.

    Personally, I think there were far too many battle royal matches in 2018. Off the top of my head...
    -Womens Rumble
    -Mens Rumble
    -Greatest Rumble
    -Andre Battle Royal
    -Chyna Battle Royal (This is what it should be)
    -Evolution Battle Royal
    -Stupid battle Royal Angle won in mask

    I'm probably forgetting a few. My thought is to take the Mania Battle Royals, move them to SummerSlam. It would space them out better. I would move MITB back to Mania and replace MITB event with KOTR. HIAC would become Halloween Havoc. HIAC and TLC would be more sporadic, used as feud enders as they were meant to be. Elimination Chamber could move to December, maybe call it Armageddon again since the EC name sucks as a show name. And finally, HATE Extreme Rules. There is nothing Extreme about the show. You wanna go extreme? Bring back the Hardcore Title, throw it on Ambrose and let him be himself.

    Unless I'm mistaken, first and only time light tubes were used as a weapon on WWE.

    Yeah likely. Not exactly the most stable prop in the world.
