WWE RAW GM Mike Adamle Announces "Championship Scramble" For Unforgiven

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IAugust 18, 2008

A blockbuster matchup has just been announced for the WWE's next Pay-Per-View, Unforgiven.

Just minutes ago, RAW General Manager Mike Adamle made the special announcement. It will be a brand new WWE concept called a "Championship Scramble".

The match will have five participants. Five men will walk into the ring at Unforgiven to compete in a 20-minute match. All five men can score a pin fall or submission victory within the 20-minute time limit.

The five participants include the World Champion CM Punk, JBL, Kane, John Cena, and Batista. The person who scores a victory in that 20 minutes becomes the new World Champion. But the match will continue until the time runs out.

Whoever is holding the World Title after 20 minutes will walk out of Unforgiven the World Champion.  

No doubt this is an original idea, but I'm not sure if I like this number padding. In this match, all five men can become World Champion at some time in this match, adding to their career numbers. We could even see someone win it multiple times within the time limit.

It does make for an interesting concept. And it is almost impossible to predict who will walk out of Unforgiven the WWE World Champion.

Let's just hope we don't see too much "number padding".
