Get your brackets ready. Tournaments are one of the easiest concepts to understand in wrestling. You take a bunch of wrestlers, put them together into a bracket, and have the winner get some kind of a prize. The reward could be just about anything, which is why they can be so commonly used. Now it seems that we are going to be getting another one for something.

This week on SmackDown, WWE announced the beginning of the SmackDown World Cup next week. The eight person tournament will begin on the November 11 SmackDown with the winner receiving a future Intercontinental Title shot. There were no other details given, including the entrants or date of the final. WWE has previously presented a World Cup tournament, with the one night event taking place at Crown Jewel 2018 with Shane McMahon winning despite not being entered.

Opinion: Sure why not. Tournaments are an idea that often work rather well in wrestling and that should be the case again here. WWE does know how to run tournaments and putting a title shot on the line is a good idea. Gunther needs a new challenger and we should be able to find out who that is in just a few weeks, assuming the tournament doesn’t get out of hand.

What do you think of the tournament? Who do you have winning? Let us know in the comments below.
