Man, f*** that rule. I hate that rule. I really do hope they stick with it and not make it an automatic thing.
This allows time for the former champion to breathe, change directions, whatever. And you could also build up to that rematch. And it’s a f***ing failsafe cause if ya do want a rematch, you can just finagle a way the champion allows it. It just shouldn’t be “automatic”.
They should tone down the automatic rematches a bit, like having a wrestler waive it in order to choose a match stipulation or otherwise trade it for some material benefit, because if we just dropped them now wholesale, people would be confused. It's too established.
That, or do the rematches on a Raw and not have the same people doing a shitload of PPV matches together.
There's a few posts not understanding what they mean by automatic rematches, I think.
I'm fairly sure this is just in reference to the "Rematch Clause" for a former champion who lost their title.
It was. It has nothing to do with a challenger getting a rematch if the champion got intentionally DQ'd or something. It's strictly, if you're a champion and you lose your belt you aren't guaranteed an immediate rematch.
EDIT: And they just said "Not Guaranteed", they can still do the immediate rematch if they want. Just supposedly, it's no longer guaranteed in storyline
