    Because the live crowd got fed up

      The rule was fundamentally good. The application was the total failure.
      Why couldn't they just organize themselves to not have rambling mic segments that drag out too long and tell the wrestlers and ref they have an approximate amount of time to get to the finish which the timekeeper and ref keep the wrestlers in check telling them when to wrap it up?
      The answer is because WWE is about the money and not the quality of the product.
      Next Raw or Smackdown take note of how long is broken into 4 categories Wrestling, Mic time, Advertising (non WWE) and Brand promotion (PPV, Network, Eshop and sponsors).

      You aren't watching much wrestling on your 2/3 hour wrestling program.

        I feel really sorry for the fans that pay money to attend the live shows and have to sit during commercials. It's a good thing WWE scrap it.

          Here's a craaaaaaaaaaaaazy idea. No commercials during wrestling! Just stick them in between matches instead! Less talky, more fighty!

              I like actually two out of three falls but not that crap. But it is strange. You let the wrestlers actually wrestle and the show is decent

                  I don't know why the commercials have to be during the match anyway. Just have it in between segments.

                        We all know Vince dropped the no wrestling during commercials because of Simon Miller's downs.

                          Don't forget for those in the UK WWE will be in it's new home on BT TV from January next year. Happy about that or not ?

                                      Good tht they got rid of the rule,I just wish they wouldn't show a 3 min commercial every 9 mins or so, hopefully aew doesn't do this

                                        I liked the "No wrestling during the commercials" rule. There is nothing more fun than watching Vince McMahon totally destroying his company with his out of touch micromanagement

                                                        I pray they work matches around commercials. It makes it blatent that its all a work, as no match has ever ended during the commercial break.
