Powell’s POV: The MMC will have a 14-week run and there is actually going to be a ten-minute pre-show that will air opposite the end of Smackdown. The actual MMC broadcast will begin at 9CT/10ET right after Smackdown. The big changes this year is that it will be a 30-minute broadcast with two matches airing each week, plus it will be a round robin style tournament. Will I cover the show live after doing so last season? Nope, no way, but we will definitely pass along the results.
