Report: New Creative Direction Discussed For WWE Main Event Program

Nick Paglino

WWE Main EventAccording to The Wrestling Observer, WWE officials have discussed the idea of having the WWE Main Event program center around the Intercontinental Title, much like Raw centers around the WWE Title and Smackdown centers around the WWE World Title.

It was announced a couple weeks ago that an Intercontinental Cup tournament would be taking place on Main Event, and WWE even went as far as announcing participants in the tournament, however, the Cup was ultimately scrapped by the company in favor of a different direction for Wade Barrett.

As of now, there has been no confirmation as to whether or not WWE plans to bring the Intercontinental Cup back at some point, however the idea of a mid-card title being featured on Main Event has at least been discussed internally.
