The former WWE Writer has revealed he would like to see the old-school pay-per-view be brought back.
With the return of the WarGames matches at the upcoming Survivor Series, many are speculating what other concepts could make a return with Paul Levesque now at the helm of WWE Creative.
On the prospect of familiar themes and shows making a comeback, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. would like to once again see Cyber Sunday.
In 2004, the event was originally named Taboo Tuesday and as the name suggests took place on Tuesdays. Then in 2006, it was moved to the more traditional Sunday night for PPVs and was renamed Cyber Sunday. The theme of the show would enable fans to vote on certain aspects of matches including things such as opponents and stipulations.
Speaking on his Wrestling with Freddie podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. revealed he would like to see the return of Cyber Sunday and also confirmed that fan voting for the PPV was indeed legit:
“Behind the scenes or behind the curtain, these were legit. They literally worked out three different matches with whoever the main guy in the ring was going to be. Granted, you know that these were all super pros so they didn’t have to choreograph the entire match. They can feel it while they’re out there. But they would have to be prepared, regardless of who they thought would win just in case someone didn’t win the vote and they would have to go with the person who did.
So they were always very careful with the three options they gave you. They didn’t want to give you like Doink the Clown versus Shawn Michaels because they can’t trust fans to not go, ‘Yea, let’s see Doink versus Shawn Michaels’ because that match would suck. So they would always give you three credible choices. But it was a legit vote.
Every time that the vote came in, that’s who went in and wrestled. I never knew that. I always thought it was a work when I was watching them, but I liked them a lot even though I thought they were fake. Once I found out it was real, it just brought a whole different level of magic to it. So I would love to see something like that come back again.”
Recently, Freddie Prinze Jr. divulged the one word that was guaranteed to make former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon fly into a rage.
