WWE News: Is the WWE Stealing an Idea from TNA for WWE No Way out 2012?

Chris HumphreyCorrespondent IMarch 21, 2012

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.

From Wrestling News Source:

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?
