WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament details

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Paul Levesque announced how the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion will be crowned during his appearance at the WWE Backlash press conference on Friday. Levesque stated that a pair of Triple Threat matches will be held on Monday’s Raw and the winners will meet in a singles match later in the same night. The same scenario will play out on Smackdown with two more Triple Threat matches followed by the winners meeting in a singles during the same show. The wrestlers who win the singles matches will then face off at May 27 WWE Night of Champions event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Powell’s POV: So apparently Roman Reigns is the only Smackdown wrestler who can’t take part in the tournament for some reason? Strange. I’m not a big fan of the Triple Threat approach and was hoping for a loaded eight-man tournament, but this format does make next week’s Raw and Smackdown interesting.

    The only way this whole thing is salvageable is if Roman shows up during the final, destroys both guys there, and walks off with the third belt while calling himself the Triple Crown champ or something to that effect.
