After not being seen on the WWE's yearly schedule since it was replaced by Elimination Chamber in 2010, former event No Way Out will make its return this summer as a gimmick pay-per-view.
However, the gimmick of the summer event will be familiar to fans of the WWE’s biggest competition TNA.
The returning No Way Out Pay-Per-View which will come to E. Rutherford, N.J. at the Izod Center on Sunday, June 17 will feature Steel Cage matches for the main event. WWE aired a video during tonight's SmackDown which featured shots of cages.
Unless you exclusively watch the WWE for your professional wrestling fix each week, the idea of a pay-per-view event with matches held exclusively inside a steel cage is very similar to that of TNA’s LockDown.
However, unlike the TNA event—in which every match is held inside a steel cage—I would assume that the WWE will not hold every match at No Way Out inside the structure.
That being said, with Vince McMahon, there is always a possibility of it happening.
When No Way Out arrives later this year, I think the WWE championship or world heavyweight championship matches will be held in a steel cage match. Meanwhile, the undercard matches will be standard matches like at current pay-per-views Elimination Chamber and Hell in a Cell.
So, Bleachers, what do you think of the WWE’s plan for No Way Out as the former pay-per-view event makes its return to the schedule as a steel cage match event?
