Former WWE Writer Wants Special Gimmick PPV To Return
One of the many former creative writers to come and go through WWE wants to see the Cyber Sunday gimmick come back.
Freddie Prinze, Jr. was a big fan of the concept and believes that Triple H should bring it back now that he’s in control of WWE’s creative direction.
For those that don’t remember, Cyber Sunday and its predecessor Taboo Tuesday were “interactive events” in which fans had real voting power to decide matches. Fans could choose things such as match stipulations and match participants, with results being decided live on the spot at the event itself. As such, the wrestlers involved tended to have little to no time to prepare for the matches they were going into.
Speaking on his Wrestling With Freddie Podcast, Prinze appreciated that the voting was legit and not phony or ‘worked’.
“It was a legit vote, and every time that the vote came in, that’s who went in and wrestled, and I never knew that,” Prinze said. “I always thought it was a work when I was [watching], when they were on. But I liked those 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.”
