Tournaments


Is there a particular reason that tournaments, like King of the Ring, did away with the "3 matches in one night" dynamic and went to just semi-finals & finals? Is it purely because the past had workers like Bret & Owen who could handle wrestling 3 different matches and now there’s less freedom there? Was there too much injury risk? Too hard for writers/bookers to do full tournaments?

I remember recently the Survivor Series tournament for the WWE Title that Roman win was hampered by only having to win twice took some of the accomplishment feeling away for me…

​It’s mostly because tournaments are DEATH as a main attraction and they want to advertise as many other matches as possible, so you get the half-assed semi-finals and finals format instead of the manly "win four matches in one night" format that might actually get someone over.​
